What if God was one of us? Joan Osborne asked that very question in her 1995 hit single ‘One of Us.’ Taken off her critically acclaimed 1995 album ‘Relish,’ the song earned Osborne global success, propelling the album to multiplatinum status. With the 90s dominated by belly-rings and Pop princesses, it was refreshing to see an artist singing a song that asks a poignant question instead of you know, singing about getting hit one more time. The album earned Osborne the Grammy nominations including one for Album of the Year.
It was also used as the theme song for television series ‘Joan of Arcadia.’ After the success of her debut album, Osborne continued to release new music, touring with big-name artists like the Dixie Chicks and veteran San Francisco jam-rockers The Dead. And proving that she was no one-hit wonder, she continued to garner that critical acclaim and more Grammy Awards nominations. Her 2012 album, ‘Bring It On Home,’ received a Grammy nomination for Best Blues Album. She formed a Rock band named Trigger Hippy with Nick Govrik, Jackie Greene, Tom Bukovac, and Steve Gorman in.
The band released their debut album in September 2014. The singer released her eighth studio album titled ‘Love and Hate’ in April 2014. Even at the height of her Pop success, Osborne detested the glaring limelight and said she was more interested in musical integrity and creative longevity than in transient Pop success, a fact she reiterated in an episode of ‘Austin City Limits’ in 2001, where she mentioned how glad she was to have gotten out of the limelight of her 90s stardom. She is happier making music on her own terms, and is currently on a tour that includes stops in Tokyo, Japan.
