Anders Osborne Swedish blues artist who settled in New Orleans when he was 19 soaking up the Jazz/Funk R&B vibe of the city. Up until that point he'd hitchhiked around the world playing music. He plays in Open D tuning (picked it up after listening to 'Blue' by Joni Mitchell), initially influenced by Neil Young, Jackson Browne, Van, Dylan & Lowell George it was listening to Robert Johnson that finally gave him his direction. He seems to have finally found a home on Alligator records, and the release of Black Eye Galaxy (2012 focusing on him finding some peace and redemption after a life long struggle with addiction) has finally established him as a respected blues artist.
