MUSICAL JOURNEY: Joan Osborne, whose hit “One of Us” led to a Grammy Award in the mid-1990s, is on tour promoting her latest release, “Love and Hate,” which examines light and dark moments of relationships.
Osborne will share her musings on love when she performs two Granite State shows this weekend, Friday night at the Tupelo Music Hall in Londonderry and then Saturday evening at the Lebanon Opera House. She performs on the bills in the Joan Osborne Trio featuring Jack Petruzzelli and Keith Cotton.
Osborne recorded the album in Pennsylvania and New York over a long period of time. She utilized some old-school gear initially, but in order to move the process along also used ProTools and digital gear.
As a songwriter, Osborne credits self-discipline as the reason for much of her ongoing success.
