"This S. F. bay area artist debut release is a refreshingly unique blend of blues, rock, R&B and country. From its boot scootin’ boogie dance songs to its weepy ballads, this CD has plenty of diversity yet Mike’s passionate, masterful guitar playing ties it all together in a common thread."
"blazing guitar work and powerful vocals coupled with his strong stage presence and audience interaction to a level rarely seen"
Mike is a unique blend of rock, blues and country with an occasional Celtic accent (oh, did I mention unique?).
Always soulful, always danceable, always with a concert stage presence and audience interaction, the entire band delivers on multiple levels all at the same time.
I have been pouring over the many things that have been written about Michael W. Osborn over the years. I am doing so to help find the element that isn't there. In other words, what is the crucial and unique quality in him that just hasn't been put into words yet? There's been a lot of praise, but something's missing. Something BIG! Well, I have found what that missing piece is. For all those people that know and love Mike and his work, it's far from missing, it's the basis of what it is. Somehow though, until now the essence of what makes Michael - Michael has not reached the written page. Here it is;
Combined with his Masterful talent as a Blues/Rock Guitarist -Singer/Songwriter - plus, his Commanding stage presence, Michael Osborn has the rare and innate ability to connect with his audiences in a passionate and emotional way. To hear his music live, is to actually feel who he is. AND, at the same time, to remember; the many positive things that you are. There is a magical quality that transpires between the hearts and souls of those in attendance, and Michael's. For many, it's nothing less than a spiritual experience. An Enlightenment, so powerful that most find it to be Unforgettable!
