Joan Osborne / Lisa Loeb
Best known for her hit "One of Us" from her 1995 album, Relish, Joan Osborne is a singer, songwriter and interpreter of many musical genres including pop, soul, R&B, blues and country. On Songs of Bob Dylan, Joan Osborne unleashes her sizable gifts as a vocalist and interpreter upon The Bard’s celebrated canon. With performances honed by the time Osborne spent polishing them during “Joan Osborne Sings The Songs Of Bob Dylan” — two critically acclaimed two-week residencies she performed at New York City’s Café Carlyle in March 2016 and 2017, the seven-time Grammy-nominated, multi-platinum-selling singer and songwriter, whom The New York Times has called “a fiercely intelligent, no-nonsense singer,” winds her supple, soulful voice around Dylan’s poetic, evocative lyrics, etching gleaming new facets in them along the way.
Lisa Loeb is a singer-songwriter, producer, touring artist, author and philanthropist who started her career with the platinum-selling Number 1 hit song “Stay (I Missed You)” from the film Reality Bites. A trailblazing independent artist, Lisa was the first pop musician to have a Number 1 single while not signed to a recording contract. She followed that remarkable feat with the hit singles "Do You Sleep," "I Do," and "Let's Forget about It” and the albums “Cake and Pie” and “No Fairy Tale,” among others. Lisa continues to craft irresistible pop songs for the 21st century, while writing children's books and supporting non-profit causes. She won the 2018 Grammy for Best Children’s Album, “Feel What U Feel” (featuring Craig Robinson and Ed Helms).
WITH SPECIAL GUEST DIANA CHITTESTER
Diana Chittester stands alone on stage with an arsenal of acoustic guitars. Her solo show is brought to life with signature percussive multi-part playing, mimicking a full band on a solo acoustic guitar, without the help of loopers or other technological tricks. Music Connection Magazine noted her “intelligent and articulate lyrics” on the review of her first full-length album, In This Skin (2012). Dubbed a “Guitar God” by Skinny Devil Magazine and “a complex guitar acrobat” by ArtVoice Magazine, in 2017 she was invited to perform on the "Cellar Sessions" series recorded live at City Winery in NYC. Diana tours regularly in the US and Canada including folk-rock venues such as The Ark, Music Box Supper Club, Rockwood Music Hall and Performing Art Centers across the Midwest. Her latest album is Paradox, which is available on May 11.
