Anders Osborne
ANDERS OSBORNE – Peace

Fiery anthems and tumultuous confessional songs punctuated with raw, inspired guitar.
--USA TODAY

Rich and glorious…Osborne possesses a voice that rises out of the darkness to the light of a soulful, tremulous wail. He is a consummate showman and shaman, bending successive moments to suit his majestic purposes. Osborne seeks an epic quality to much of his music, crafting layer upon layer of hugely scaled soundscapes.…never lazily derivative…every slashing guitar figure, every cry of a lyric, seems to come from an authentic place.
--New Orleans Times-Picayune

Between the potency of his richly detailed songwriting, his intensely emotional, soulful vocals and his piercing, expert guitar work, New Orleans' Anders Osborne is a true musical treasure. He is among the most original and visionary musicians writing and performing today. Guitar Player calls him "the poet laureate of Louisiana's fertile roots music scene." New Orleans' Gambit Weekly recently honored Osborne as the Entertainer Of The Year. OffBeat named him the Crescent City's Best Guitarist for the third year in a row, and the Best Songwriter for the second straight year. Osborne also won Song Of The Year for his composition, Louisiana Gold.

Since the release of his 2010 Alligator Records debut, American Patchwork, his 2012 follow-up, Black Eye Galaxy, his critically acclaimed EP Three Free Amigos, and 2013's Peace, Osborne has earned hordes of new fans. He has toured virtually non-stop, either with his road-tested trio, as a solo artist, or as a guest with his countless musical admirers, including Toots and The Maytals, Stanton Moore, Derek Trucks, Warren Haynes, Keb Mo, The Grateful Dead's Phil Lesh and Karl Denson's Tiny Universe. He's appeared on Galactic's Ya-Ka-May album, and in 2011 produced and played on critically acclaimed albums by Tab Benoit, Johnny Sansone and Mike Zito.

Since his recording debut in 1989, Osborne has written virtually all of his own material and contributed memorable songs to a wide variety of artists. Two tunes co-written by Osborne appear on Keb Mo's Grammy-winning 1999 release Slow Down. Country superstar Tim McGraw scored a #1 hit with Anders' song Watch The Wind Blow By. Osborne's compositions have been covered by artists as diverse as Brad Paisley, Tab Benoit, Jonny Lang and Kim Carnes. His songs have appeared in multiple feature films. He can also be seen performing in an episode of HBO's New Orleans-based drama, Treme.
New Breed
New Breed Brass Band lives and breathes the culture of New Orleans, infusing funk, rock, jazz, and hip-hop into a
custom-made enhancement of second-line brass band tradition.
"That's what we came up under," says snare-drummer Jenard Andrews of second line bands like the ReBirth, Dirty Dozen
and Lil' Rascals Brass Bands. "Now we're trying to take that sound and bring in some new stuff and expand it. We bring
outside influences like Earth Wind & Fire and Brass Construction, trying to interpret a different song for every genre, and
make it all our own sound."
With a founding core of five New Orleans natives, New Breed Brass Band made its street debut as a nine-man unit in
November 2013 at the Nine Times Second Line. Since then, they have showcased their originality opening for such
diverse bands as The Fray, Red Baraat, Dr. John, The Waterboys, and Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, as well as
competing in the Red Bull Street Kings brass band competition in 2013.
Most of the members have been playing music since they were toddlers and count such New Orleans legends as James
"12" Andrews, Troy "Trombone Shorty" Andrews, Topsy Chapman, Karl Leblanc, and Bruce "Sun-pie" Barnes as family
members. Honing their childhood experiences playing music with their families, and on through high school marching
bands and concert ensembles, the nine members of New Breed are united to one cause: rocking each show and
entertaining audiences to the maximum degree possible. The band's strong desire is to be the next heavyweight
contender among internationally-known New Orleans brass bands.
Whether performing in their hometown or on the road, New Breed will forever bring the vibe of the New Orleans secondline
with them. "We can't wait," Andrews says of bringing the New Breed sound to stages and festivals around the world.
"It's a new breed of music that we'll be bringing to our culture, and we hope to create a new sound for our city in the
process."
