Anders Osborne is back with what some call, “the next chapter of his spiritual odyssey,” his thirteenth album, Peace. The songwriter has been making music since he first released Doin’ Fine in 1989, and has been touring ever since. More recently he’s performed with Toots and The Maytals, Stanton Moore, Derek Trucks, Warren Haynes, Keb Mo, The Grateful Dead’s Phil Lesh and Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe.
Osborne says Peace was inspired by family and friends, and is his most observational record yet. According to Osborne, “Peace is light from darkness. The songs are written from the outside looking in. They are not making any judgments. I’m just stating facts. I’m writing from a brighter perspective. There’s less dusk and dark, and much more sunlight. The results are greater than I expected. The driving tones and sounds are free and natural. This is one of the coolest records I’ve ever made.”

Out of Nashville comes a cool, indie sound from a band that we just love. They’ve really come into their own this year. The band Leagues played as an opening act at Upstate Concert Hall earlier this year. Their song “Spotlight” is one of our favorites of 2013. It’s now featured in a BOSE commercial – so cool!
Now, the band’s new single “Walking Backwards” is coming out, and we’ve been authorized to give you a free download for a bit. After the break, check out the new song performed live at the Chicago Music Exchange and you’ll find the download Sound Cloud, too.
