Anders Osborne
Anders Osborne was born in Uddevalla, Sweden, and raised on Gotland Island in the Baltic Sea, Anders Osborne began his musical education by listening to his father, a professional pop and jazz drummer who toured the same German club circuit as the Beatles. Osborne cut his musical teeth playing drums, but soon switched to guitar. By 16, his wanderlust led him to travel across Europe, into Africa, and the Middle East. Eventually, he wound up in United States, where he lived for brief periods in New York, New Orleans, and California. Then it was on to Southeast Asia before a return trip to America, which led him back to New Orleans, where he's lived now for more than 20 years.

His song, “Watch the Wind Blow By,” was recorded by country music star Tim McGraw, hitting No. 1 on the country charts for 2 weeks and selling over 3 million albums. Osborne’s songs have been recorded by artists like Keb’ Mo’, Tab Benoit, Double Trouble, Dr John, Big Chief Monk Boudreaux and many others who have garnered Anders’ Grammy Awards for songwriting and producing.
