Anders Osborne Announces Spring Tour & More

Contact: Mark Carpentieri
Northport N.Y. - Anders Osborne has announced dates on the East Coast as well as dates for the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Music Festival.

M.C. Records released New Orleans sensation Anders Osborne's first CD in five years, Coming Down, on Sept. 25, 2007. It is a beautiful testament to his adoptive home of New Orleans and that of his wife. Recorded in Nashville and New Orleans, the record was co-produced by Anders and Troy Verges (BMI country songwriter of the year). The 41-year-old Swedish native has played a leading in role in trying to convince other musicians who left New Orleans to come back. Anders and his family came back six weeks after Katrina.
"Every once in a great while a recording comes along that defies being pigeonholed into one genre or category. Whether it is for composition, writing, musicianship, or all of the above, there is just something that keeps you listening time after time. These songs reach down deep into all of us where we can relate to the tale being told. Sometimes it is pain and suffering endured. Sometimes it is the fond memory of a place or time past. Regardless of how, these songs will touch some part of everyone in some way." Folkwax

“He’s created one of the best albums of the year.” Andy Whitman, Paste Magazine
"You might slap at an imaginary skeeter or reach to pop open a Jax, the images are so vivid.” Jeff Johnson, Chicago Sun Times
“He sounds like a best friend who has written these songs specifically for you.” Hal Horowitz,
"Coming Down" is the best singer-songwriter disc I've heard this year, and the best collection of songs Osborne has assembled. His laid-back passion only adds to the overall excellence.” Norwalk Advocate
