Anders Osborne is a New Orleans guitarist and songwriter who is among the most original and visionary musicians writing and performing today. Guitar Player magazine calls him “the poet laureate of Louisiana’s fertile roots music scene” and New Orleans' Gambit Weekly has honored him as 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 a second straight year. Osborne also won Song of the Year for his composition, Louisiana Gold.

A powerful live performer, the musician has won over fans through non-stop touring as well as a heralded collaboration with the North Mississippi Allstars & Southern Soul Assembly.
Osborne has earned hordes of new fans. He has toured virtually non-stop, either with his own band, 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, Jackie Greene and Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe. He’s 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, Edwin McCain, Sam Bush, Trombone Shorty and Aaron Neville and Kim Carnes. His songs have appeared in multiple feature films. He can also be seen in an episode of HBO’s New Orleans-based drama, Treme.
