Lily and The Parlour Tricks / Nat Osborn Band / Jay Stolar
July 12, 2013
New York native Nat Osborn is a restless soul. He has studied tabla in India, played guitar on the streets of Budapest, written songs on Spanish balconies, packed venues across NYC, and been deported from the U.K., all before the age of 25. A natural and prolific songwriter, his fluency in crossing genres creates a unique and truly original sound.
With nearly a decade of performance, songwriting, and band leading experience under his belt, Osborn set out in 2011 to assemble a seven-piece powerhouse ensemble, “The Nat Osborn Band.” Osborn’s raspy vocals and euphoric hooks, matched with the band’s dangerously tight rhythm section and powerful three piece horn section has resulted in sold out shows at Rockwood Music Hall stage 2, Brooklyn Bowl, Cameo Gallery and many other North East venues and colleges. Having performed with the likes of Paul Simon, Wynton Marsalis, Ludacris, and Marc Broussard, Osborn’s seasoned bandmates have created a completely undeniable performance unit with a truly captivating sound.
Lily & The Parlour Tricks dive deep into the well of musical Americana and resurface with a wild brew. Lily's songwriting influences range from The Andrews Sisters to T. Rex to 19th century murder songs, with roots planted firmly in the smoky back room of classic rock n' roll. With their soaring harmonies and raucous attitude, the Tricks keeps audiences dancing and howling for more.
Jay Stolar is a soul singer with an arsenal of heart gripping songs. His live performances hark back to the early days of R&B, when it was an artist's job to connect to every person in the room. He is a deeply influential player in the New York City music scene.
