The talented English singer/songwriter Joe Osgood has the most alluring soulful voice and is often compared to some of the great British Blues and Rock vocalists. ‘Joe Osgood and The Fathers of Light’  have just released their new single ‘AMSTERDAM’ with a successful launch at the popular Bar Love on Portobello Road, West London. The group performed live to an enthusiastic capacity crowd of fans, glitterati and music industry creatives looking for the next major artist. They were not disappointed with the high energy 45-minute set by the band, with original catchy rock/pop and dueling guitars interlaced with thoughtful story telling lyrics from Joe Osgood as in the song ‘AMSTERDAM’, a story of a lost weekend in the great Dutch port. 

Joe fronts the group as a charismatic lyricist, singer, guitarist, and performer. ‘Joe Osgood and The Fathers of Light’ draw on the musical styles of artists such as The War on Drugs, Future Islands and The Verve. Joe has previously supported the likes of Badly Drawn Boy and The Faces. 

The single ‘AMSTERDAM’ from the forthcoming album was written by Joe Osgood and recorded at Eastcote Studios using the same recording desk on which Bob Marley recorded Exodus. So, a little of Bob Marleys’ magic will resonate in the group’s album. Joe’s songwriting skills were developed writing with the late great American songwriter Scott English famous for Jeff Beck’s hit ‘Hi-Ho Silver Lining’ and Barry Manilow’s ‘Mandy.’
