Nat Osborn Band
Nat Osborn, “the mastermind behind the suitably named Nat Osborn Band, writes smart, punchy tunes that blend old-school Gershwin-era songcraft with decidedly modern sensibilities.” (Popdose)

The seven-piece band, flanked by a powerful three piece horn section, takes the best elements of soul, funk, indie-rock, and jazz and weaves them around Osborn’s truly infectious and clever songs. The band has rcently returned from a three month stint in Europe supporting their April 2015 self-titled EP release on Rope-A-Dope Records.

The band released their debut album, The King and The Clown, in April 2013 to a sold out crowd at Le Poisson Rouge in New York. Following the release, the band toured tirelessly playing 200+ live shows between the United States and Europe. They have appeared at, and often headlined, festivals on both sides of the Atlantic and been on television in seven countries, all while operating as a hard working independent act.

“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 Fashion.
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.
