In September, Nat went on a solo tour of California. Starting and ending LA, he went into the legendary Ameraycan Studios, part of the Paramount group of studios in LA. Teaming up with the hot, up and coming cinematographer Carrington Scott, a video was shot live in studio. The result, “Cagey” – Live at Paramount Studios is below for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy and share away if you dig it!

About the 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 Brooklyn based 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 recently returned from a three month stint in Europe supporting their April 2015 self-titled EP release on Rope-A-Dope Records.
Formed at the end of 2011, the band quickly made a name for itself on the New York scene and the Northeast. After teaming up with producer Alex Bilowitz (Gavin Degraw, Jamie Lidell) and mixing/mastering team Scott Jacoby (John Legend, Vampire Weekend) and Emily Lazar (Foo Fighters, David Bowie), the band released its debut album The King and The Clown on March 28, 2013, at the famed NYC venue, Le Poisson Rouge. The King and The Clown earned glowing reviews and a place on some independent music critics’ lists of Best Albums of 2013.
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.
Greetings from Krakow, Poland! This city continues to charm and inspire us. We ended the first leg of tour here with a big, blowout show at Alchemia – an amazing venue.
Here’s a clip from the show:
The first leg saw Nat, Mike Parker, Damian Niewinski, and two horn players – Slawek Prezda and Przemek Sokol take off for Slovakia, Hungary, Romania, Poland, and for the first time Serbia.
Dustin Carlson has flown over to join us for the next leg of tour. We’re off to Poland, the Czech Republic, and Slovakia on this run
The best way to keep up with the tour is on Facebook, where we’ll be posting photos, videos, and updates daily.
