The solo recordings of the artist Rick Osborne
(nobody touched this music but Rick Osborne)
Recorded using Apple's GarageBand software.
Vocals, Guitar, Bass, Drums, Midi-Piano/Keys, Percussion,(Written, performed, produced, and engineered by Rick Osborne)
Recorded in a small laundry room, with little recording experience, Osborne went to work in his headphones creating layer upon instrument-driven layer of solo exploration. A talented visual artist, Osborne's visionary layering style bleeds into his recordings.
Osborne's musicianship should not go unnoticed, as he has, from a creative standpoint, what could be one of the most under-rated ears and legendary range of abilities of all time.
Two full-length albums were produced in this 2-year session: Musical Chairs, and Cannibals and Androids. (plus a rough demo album, as well as a 3rd full-length album (Recognizing Who Makes the Rules, which Osborne considers his best work of the session, but was cut short due to bad luck)along with various other demos and experiments).
"I feel like I captured a lot of what was in my mind and showcased my abilities as a musician in all of these songs... now I have a solid addition to my portfolio as a creative entity to share with no particular target audience. To listen to your own epic creations and kind of step back and forget it's you while you're painting with your headphones on, and be inspired by your own pure creativity... that's a great thing, I hope others can find my music and use it to inspire them to find their own unique creative style. It's music for artists.. because that's what I am, and that's who I care about."
- Rick Osborne
"It's a personal exploration of musical style by one of the most talented artists in the history of the world.
