Live Album Release

Nat Osborn Band Live In Poland Album Art

Nat Osborn Band Live In Poland

We’ve just released our first first live album. The album is an entire concert, recorded on April 30th 2015, while we were on tour in Europe. The show was at a train station built in 1882 that’s been converted into a state of the art venue. It was mixed by Danielle Warman of Chiller Sound Studios. Danielle has mixed the likes of Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band and Phish and we were beyond grateful to have her on board. We hope you enjoy the album!

March ’16 update. Rough Trade ahead!

BIG Rough Trade show on April 2nd.

“Cagey” – live at Paramount Studios LA

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!

European Tour Update

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.
