Described as “irresistible” by Consequence of Sound, Nat Osborn “writes smart, punchy tunes that blend old-school Gershwin-era song craft with decidedly modern sensibilities” (Popdose).
Osborn was born in and lives in New York City. The city’s endless energy is in his blood, whatever part of the world he’s performing in. Nat’s style is, like New York, an eclectic mix of influences though you can be sure that passion, soul, and honesty flow through each note and lyric.
Largely known as the leader of the international touring act Nat Osborn Band, he’s also a compelling and accomplished solo performer.
Expect to hear a unique blend of old school soul, inventive and masterful piano playing, powerful vocals, and tinges of jazz, broadway, and even classical all centered around smart, catchy pop songs and a captivating voice.
