Our guest this week on Art of the Song is acclaimed singer/songwriter/song interpreter Joan Osborne. AllMusic.com declared her “the most gifted vocalist of her generation.” She’s performed with Motown’s revered rhythm section the Funk Brothers and toured with the Grateful Dead. In her latest album, Trouble and Strife, Joan tackles an array of socio-political issues including immigration and the weaponization of misinformation while simultaneously uplifting and empowering listeners. We spoke with Joan from her home in the Catskills (you might hear her daughter practicing saxophone in the background).
Art of the Song can be heard Thursday nights at 11:00 pm on KRCB FM Radio 91 / streaming @ norcalpublicmedia.org / Listen on the go - download the FREE KRCB mobile app from the App Store & Google Play!
