In a career that spans over fifteen years, Joan Osborne has proven to be an artistically restless yet consistently enthralling performer. In 2002, she cemented her reputation as a top tier soul singer with an incredible turn in the acclaimed documentary film, Standing in the Shadows of Motown, followed by a tour with legendary Motown backing band The Funk Brothers. In 2003 Osborne toured with the Dixie Chicks and then surprised and wowed audiences throughout America for two years as lead singer for the Dead.
Her fall 2008 release, Little Wild One, reunited her with her Grammy All-Star team of Rick Chertoff, Rob Hyman and Eric Bazillian. The four last worked together on Osborne's breakthrough debut album, Relish, which yielded the smash hit "One of Us" and scored six Grammy nominations.
