Ever since her 1995 hit single "One of Us," Joan Osborne has remained a strong presence in the music world, collaborating with members of the Grateful Dead, participating in the Lilith Fair concerts and appearing in the documentary "Standing in the Shadows of Motown."
Long before the world took note of Joan Osborne, she'd been building a solid following as a committed blues singer. Her turn toward pop music was a brief detour in a career that's brought out the best in the blues. Over all, Joan Osborne can easily take her place alongside her inspirations Etta James and Tina Turner in the league of powerful, electrifying singers of blues, soul, and R&B.
If Joan Osborne's last show on StageOne was any indication, she may be the best-kept secret in music.
