Alive After Five: Anders Osborne with Travis McDaniel Band


Swedish-born Anders Osborne did the reverse of what many Americans do--as a young man, Osborne traveled to the United States. But he did what many singers and songwriters do--he moved to a music mecca (actually two) and found inspiration.

Having lived in New Orleans and Nashville for the past few decades, the man with the big ol' beard and bad-ass guitar skills has let the flavors of those cities seep into his sound, which mixes blues and soulful rock in a way that is transformative. Osborne's music is seductive yet gritty and seeing the award-winning songwriter play is a moving experience--for both mind and body.
