Still working on that hot first release.


Feeling a bit camera shy


Rich Osborn is a raga style guitar improviser.  He first learned the style from legendary Robbie Basho in 1968.
A severe injury to his left hand left him unable to play for almost 20 years, during which time he turned to painting.
Returning to music in the late 1990's it still took another 10 years to recover the strength and flexibility to play.  
First heard publicly on "Beyond Berkeley Guitar" in 2010, he finally published his debut solo album in 2012, "Giving Voice:  Guitar Explorations."  This charted at #21 by Zone Music Reporter and he was nominated for "Best New Artist of the Year".
His follow-up album "This Is My Country" is expected by early 2015.
Dusted Magazine said of his playing that it gives "the exhilarating sense of music being discovered as it is played."
