198 – Lighting Up The Sun With Anders Osborne

This week on No Simple Road we welcome the one and only Anders Osborne! 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 has 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.

Anders spends some time with the No Simple Road crew discussing life in and out of quarantine, creating the new album ‘Orpheus And The Mermaids’, what really matters in this life, sobriety and the struggles within, why New Orleans is such a magical place, and much more!
