Rooster Walk is absolutely thrilled to add rock star Anders Osborne to the RW6 lineup for a Friday night set!
Between the potency of his richly detailed songwriting, his intensely emotional, soulful vocals and his piercing, expert guitar work, New Orleans’ Anders Osborne is a true musical treasure. He is among the most original and visionary musicians writing and performing today. Guitar Player calls him “the poet laureate of Louisiana’s fertile roots music scene.” New Orleans’ Gambit Weekly recently honored Osborne as the Entertainer Of The Year. OffBeat named him the Crescent City’s Best Guitarist for the third year in a row, and the Best Songwriter for the second straight year. Osborne also won Song Of The Year for his composition, Louisiana Gold.
Since 2010, he has toured virtually non-stop, either with his road-tested trio, as a solo artist, or as a guest with his countless musical admirers, including Toots and The Maytals, Stanton Moore, Derek Trucks, Warren Haynes, Keb Mo, The Grateful Dead’s Phil Lesh and Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe.
Along with The Disco Biscuits and Sound Tribe Sector 9, Particle was among the first to blend rock, jazz, funk, and electronica into the milieu of what has been dubbed “jamtronica” or “livetronica.” The group has made a name for itself and built an enthusiastic fan base, – known as Particle People – by performing energetic late-night sets at festivals such as Bonnaroo.
Particle’s Steve Molitz is the remaining founding member, and joining him for Particle’s first national tour since roughly 2007 are later-era guitarist/singer Ben Combe and two new Particle members, drummer Brandon Draper and bassist Clay Parnell. Founding Particle members Darren Pujalet and Eric Gould remain connected to the band but are focusing on family and careers – and give the new lineup their full blessing, Molitz says.
