     Armed with her strong, sultry voice, Joan Osborne’s genre-crossing prowess has garnered accolades as a singer-songwriter, pop hitmaker, and rootsy, bluesy soul singer for almost two decades. Since the release of her 1995 breakout album Relish and her hit song “One of Us” that catapulted her into super stardom status with seven Grammy nominations, Osborne has waded deeper into the world of blues and R&B, from which her love of singing began. In 2002 she cemented her reputation as a top tier soul singer with the acclaimed documentary Standing in the Shadows of Motown and a tour with legendary Motown band The Funk Brothers. Earning a 2013 Grammy nomination, her latest album Bring It on Home is her first album composed entirely of covers in that genre, featuring songs by Muddy Waters, Ray Charles, Nina Simone, Otis Redding, and more ranging from Slim Harpo's "Shake Your Hips" to the Bill Withers deep cut "Same Love That Made Me Laugh."
