David Bowling CASHBOX Magazine USA



My name’s Tom Clarke and I write a column in Hittin’ The Note and contribute to Elmore and Blues Music Magazine (formerly Blues Revue). It’s always tough to sift through the piles and find a winner among the so-many talented folks I get CD’s from, especially in the realm you work in. Your album In The Dog House stuck out today—I love when that happens!—and I’m writing about it right now for HTN. Great songs matter most, and you deliver. Singing voice second, and yours has that natural grit. Very tasty guitar? In spades. Thanks for a fine listening experience tonight. Tom Clarke---Hittin’ The Note / Elmore / Blues Music Magazine USA





Mike's voice is powerful enough with accents soul and one guitar style based on virtuosity without losing sight of the melody.

From the Italian Magazine http://www.ilpopolodelblues.com/wp/



Mike Osborn encompasses an ability to link the blues past to the freshness of today in his individualized vocals and guitar work.

Frank- John Hadley Downbeat Magazine USA

What these guys put together is incredible: the songs are all very well-written, musicianship is first-rate, and Osborn’s guitar work and vocals are amazing. Each song is different and cover more genres than would seem possible in a 45 minute album that actually sounds like it is a singular piece of art. and it shows that Mike’s talent has a lot of depth.

Mike Osborn’s In the Dog House is a winner from every perspective. He delivers a passionate and intelligent album that was carefully put together by one of the best in the business. I have heard his live performance is just as good.

Mike Osborn is a seasoned guitar player who's styles range from blues, rocking blues, and country. He is an excellent songwriter and the master of the electric guitar. With story driven lyrics and stinging guitar licks he has the ability to transport you to other dimensions with his music. I had the pleasure of working with him on his first CD which did well internationally. I recommend that you give this artist a serious listen.

Mike Osborn Is a True original, Passionate and Soulful, Mike has a unique sound loaded with intensity and emotion; With a bluesy style and a twist of hard driving rock and county thrown in for some tasty Blues. I started working with mike almost ten years ago after working with many noteworthy musicians over the years and heard something special in his style and phrasing. While he can certainly cut it up with the best of them he always shines through in a unique way that is impossible to ignore.

Mike has a great down to earth personality and demeanor. Musically I have enjoyed watching Mike grow and blossom into an even broader musician that will get you dancing in your seat and stomping your feet. I would have to say he is probably one of the bay areas top ten Guitarist/Musicians. With a unique mix of influences from Buddy Guy, Gary More, Jimi Hendrix, SRV, BB Chung King and many others. And always an enjoyable show and a must see live!

Guitar Tech

Michael W. Osborn was born in Illinois and grew up in the country on the bank of the Kankakee river, not unlike Huckleberry Finn hiking, hunting and fishing, enjoying the outdoors. His family listened to country music and “blue grass” often, He hated it at the time but it would later have a big influence on him musically. When he was 13 his family moved to Woodland CA (near Sacramento), he started taking guitar lessons in school. By the time he was 16 he was performing regularly in local clubs as a lead guitarist in a country rock band. From there he went on to play in rockabilly and metal bands for years and played in church frequently. In 1991 he played professionally for a couple years doing blues and classic rock and become influenced by the recently deceased Stevie Ray Vaughan. After taking a hiatus from music for a few years to focus on raising his children as a single father, Mike started back up again in October 2006 performing weekly and building up a network of musicians and music and re-establishing his reputation. Mike has received rave reviews on magazine, television and radio. Always performing with a raw "edge of the envelope" passion and supported by the finest professional musicians, these shows are a definite must see. October 09' marked the release of his first feature album "Fire & Fury" (a term used to describe the energy of his live performances), a 10 track CD that is a unique blend of blues, rock, country and R&B. The original tracks on the album offer a rare glimpse into his personal views and thoughts on life. In 2014 Mike followed up with his second CD release “In the dog House” named after the studio he recorded it in. The 11 track CD was immediately heralded to glowing reviews. It showcases the musical growth and developing songwriting as Mike continues down his musical path. Mike uses Epiphone guitars and Egnater amps and GHS strings now.

His music has been downloaded online tens of thousands of times and he currently holds the #1 spot in the Blues/Rock category of Reverbnation's charts for the Bay Area.

Northern California Music Entertainers Award Band Of the Year 2017



The Mike Osborn Band is a unique blend of classic rock, blues and country with an occasional Celtic accent thrown in (oh, did I mention unique?).



Always soulful, always danceable, always with a concert stage presence and audience interaction, the entire band delivers on multiple levels all at the same time.



From its boot scootin’ boogie dance songs to its weepy ballads, Mike has plenty of diversity yet his passionate, masterful guitar playing ties it all together.
