SOPAC presents An Evening with Joan Osborne

(SOUTH ORANGE, NJ) -- The South Orange Performing Arts Center (SOPAC) presents An Evening with Joan Osborne on Friday, March 1, 2024 at 8:00pm. Since she broke on to the scene more than 25 years ago with her multi-platinum album Relish (1995) and its touchstone mega-smash hit "One of Us," the seven-time Grammy nominee has never played it safe.  Osborne has followed her restless musical heart, exploring a diverse range of genres including Pop Rock, Soul, R&B, Blues, Roots Rock, Gospel, Funk, and Country.

Osborne is an 8-time Grammy nominee and multi-platinum selling recording artist. A native of Kentucky, she moved to NYC to attend NYU Film School, but dropped out after becoming involved in New York’s downtown music scene.

Now touring in support of 2023's Nobody Owns You, a record Osborne believes is her most personal to date. "These songs come from my feelings about people in my family, about people who I care about, and just what to do with this time that we have on the earth.  They come from a raw emotional place.  And I’m asking myself that question:  What am I here for?"

The powerful album’s deeply melodic songcraft, including some co-writes with producer Ben Rice (Valerie June; Norah Jones), serves up a rich Americana sound.  Her sumptuous alto and poetic lyrics are underpinned by rootsy textures, ranging from Rice’s banjo guitar, to Cindy Cashdollar’s lap steel, to Dave Sherman’s piano and Hammond organ, to Jack Petruzzelli’s baritone guitar.

Tickets starting at $39 and are available for purchase online. After having performed with Stevie Wonder at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, dueted with Luciano Pavarotti, and co-headlined a tour with the legendary Mavis Staples, Osborne is celebrating the power of music at SOPAC!  Don’t miss this energetic evening of original songs as well as some of Osborne’s greatest hits!
