About the Band

The Nat Osborn Band melds, mashes, and stirs up styles like a chef mixing spices: a dash of funk here, a dollop of big band there, a sprinkling of reggae all around a solid base of smart, catchy songwriting.  The result: a unique and original sound all its own.

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.

The band has since played over 150 shows, including two European tours, two U.S. tours- headlining small festivals on both continents. N.O.B. has made its television debut in five countries, racked up over 40,000 views on YouTube content, all while forging a reputation through grassroots touring as an indelible live act.

Bandleader/songwriter Nat Osborn is a charismatic performer with a compelling voice that can croon low in a ballad, soar to falsetto heights or belt and wail like a soul legend.  He leads the band front and center behind his signature Nord keyboard.

Osborn’s long-time collaborator, guitarist Dustin Carlson, delivers gorgeous, rousing textures, diabolical driving solos, and inventive rhythms that are central to the band’s sound.

Bassist Mike Parker anchors the hard-driving rhythm section with a forceful command alongside drummer Thomas Hartman (in the U.S.) and Polish drummer Damian Niewinski (in Europe).

While the band sometimes tours as a quartet, the full ensemble is a seven-piece powerhouse with a three-piece horn section that propels every aspect of Osborn’s writing: compelling melodies, inventive harmony, powerful rhythms, and memorable hooks.

Battle of the Boroughs with WNYC

BoB_Audience_2015_eCard_CROP

Ever since I was a kid I’ve listened to WNYC, in my opinion New York’s best radio station.  Every year the station holds a battle of the bands, with a bit of a twist- it’s a battle between the best bands in each of New York’s five boroughs.  This Friday, March 6th, we’re competing with seven other bands to represent Brooklyn in the final battle on March 27th.

The show is at The Greene Space, WNYC’s live performance space, and it runs from 7-9.   We’re the last band on the night so we fully expect to bring the house down after everyone’s been warmed up.

A few tickets are still on sale but everyone everywhere can watch live on their site during the show and after it on the Greene Space website.

We need as many votes as possible to get the honor of representing Brooklyn in the final battle.  So please watch us this Friday night and vote during the show online or through text!

 

 

 

Clip from 1/3/15 Rockwood 3 show

A few days after the new year began, I took the stage at Rockwood’s Stage 3.  It was a very intimate and, frankly, emotional affair.  I debuted some brand new songs, reworked some older ones, and played a rare cover or two.  The amazing Grayson Dantzic captured the evening on film and I put his video of my cover of Bob Dylan’s “I Shall Be Released” up on YouTube.  Hope you enjoy!

 

Rockwood Residency in November

Nat Osborn Band Rockwood Music Hall November Residency

 

Last Saturday we kicked off our November residency at Rockwood Music Hall at the stage it all started it, the original Stage 1.  We’re doing one show at each of the three stages this month and next up is Stage 3.  Nat will be performing solo at this intimate, candle-lit venue in a reprise of the very successful show there in August.  If you missed it, here’s a video from that night: “Half Assed Love”

The full band hits Stage 2 on November 26th, the night before Thanksgiving.  Tix to both shows are on sale now:
