Anders Osborne w/ Greg Loftus at The Iron Horse on Thursday, May 16 2024

Singer-songwriter Anders Osborne's 17th full-length album, Picasso's Villa, scheduled for release on April 26,2024 is, in the artist's words "a condensed story about living in America between 2018-2021, the fears, confusion, deep joy and peace achieved through true friendship, family, community, hours of meditation and detachment from ego."

After living and performing in New Orleans for almost four decades Osborne has become a fixture of the musical community. There New Orleans' Gambit Weekly has honored Osborne as the Entertainer of The Year. OffBeat named him the Crescent City's Best Guitarist on three occasions, and the Best Songwriter twice. He has appeared at Jazz Fest for 35 years and will perform at the festival again in 2024. He has also toured with and played with Toots and the Maytals, John Scofield to The Meters, No Derek Trucks, Warren Haynes, Stanton Moore Phil Lesh, Jackie Greene Bonnie Raitt, Dr. John and Taj Mahal.

Calloused road-worn Americana from southeast Massachusetts. Greg Loftus has spent the better half of the last decade living in Austin TX honing his songwriting skills and fronting the Alt-Country outfit Carpetbagger. Loftus’ songwriting prowess has long since progressed past the point where cookie-cutter copies of other’s glories are in the cards. He has his own voice, it’s full of echoes listeners will recognize, but it’s ultimately his own. Greg’s forth full-length record 'No Kings in the Wild' is a collection of hand crafted Americana songs sure to find an audience, and will be released in September 2024.
