Nat Osborn Band
Nat Osborn Band
Nat Osborn Band is an international touring act based in Brooklyn, New York. Osborn “writes smart, punchy tunes that blend old-school Gershwin-era songcraft with decidedly modern sensibilities” (Popdose). The band around him is comprised of some of the best musicians New York has to offer, each of whom bring their own unique voice to Osborn’s inventive songs.

Nat Osborn was born and lives in New York City. The city’s relentless energy is in his blood and in his music, something he carries with him regardless of whatever part of the world he’s performing in. Nat’s style is, like New York, an eclectic mix of influences. A heap of soul and strong doses of funk, jazz, and indie-rock are blended into an exciting and vibrant original sound. Joining Nat on tour this summer are long time collaborators Dustin Carlson on guitar, Thomas Hartman on drums, and Stu Mahan on bass guitar. Horn virtuosos Bruce Harris, Matt Garrison, and Dan Linden round out the seven-piece powerhouse ensemble.

Formed in 2012, Nat Osborn Band released their debut album, The King and The Clown, in April 2013 to a sold out crowd at the famous venue Le Poisson Rouge in New York. Following the release, the band toured tirelessly playing over two hundred concerts a year between the United States and Europe. The band has been a feature of Jazz and Pop festivals on both sides of the Atlantic and been featured on television in eight different countries, all while operating as a hard-working independent act.

In 2015, Nat Osborn Band released a three song EP on legendary Philadelphia based label Rope-A-Dope. The EP, along with debut album The King And The Clown, is on Spotify, iTunes, and anywhere you want to find music.

The band released their first live album in September 2016, for sale exclusively through https://natosbornband.bandcamp.com.

“The Nat Osborn Band has a rare knack for existing simultaneously in several different places at once” – The Deli NYC

“Eclectic, smart, high energy, Osborn gets his fingers into a whole bunch of different pies here and comes up with something good every time” – New York Music Daily

“Wow! What a sound” Artie Lange, live on the Artie Lange show

“The inability to label Osborn with any one specific genre lent greatly to his appeal. Dramatic vocal runs, rolling exotic and ghostly horn melodies, and even blues fueled guitar binges; Osborn fit it all into his tightly packed arrangements. With vocal theatrics likened to Muse, and playful horn runs a la Beirut, Osborn folded different genres into his compelling repertoire.” -Flush the
Lyle Divinsky
Lyle Divinsky
The past 3 years have brought Lyle Divinsky from subway platforms to elite stages with living legends. This unsuspecting soul man continues to prove that he owns any stage that he walks his bare feet onto. His contagious comfort breeds love and light to any crowd, bringing even the most sterile and apathetic to group sing-alongs fueled by love. He has been featured on national television as one of FuseTV’s artists to watch, was awarded the Songwriters Hall of Fame Abe Olman Scholarship (of which John Legend received in 2002), and has been playing venues and colleges all across the country. Divinsky has brought together an all-star team of soul music’s rising stars for his highly anticipated full-length release this May - producer/bass extraordinaire Calvin Turner (Raphael Saadiq, Joe Cocker, Trombone Shorty), prodigal multi-instrumentalist Louis Cato (John Scofield, Marcus Miller, Bobby McFarrin), rising soul superstar/pianist Nigel Hall (Lettuce, Soulive, Warren Haynes), and songwriter/guitar god-in-training Adam Agati (Marcus Miller, Ludacris, Marc Broussard), along with incredible guest appearances, and the best horns and strings Nashville has to offer. Together, LD and this incredible ensemble have created THE quintessential modern soul record. Divinsky, aka the Sasquatch of Soul, is the barefoot, boisterous, big-voiced answer to those who are tired of hearing the same old excuse for nowadays soul/R&B. Get ready folks, because here he comes.
