On June 6, 2019, the Hereford Entertainment Group in partnership with the historic Park Theatre will present the long-awaited return of one of Rhode Island's most celebrated musical sons singer, songwriter and producer, Jeffrey Osborne. It's been six years since Osborne has performed in the Ocean State, and this upcoming concert will mark his Park Theatre debut.
Osborne has proven himself a master at longevity through a career spanning over five decades. First as lead singer of the band L.T.D. with which he recorded the '70s Soul classics "Love Ballad," "(Every Time I Turn Around) Back in Love Again," "Holding On (When Love is Gone)," "We Both Deserve Each Other's Love" and "Shine On." Going solo in the '80s, Osborne soared anew with enduring gemstones such as "I Really Don't Need No Light," "On the Wings of Love," "Stay With Me Tonight," "We're Going All The Way," "Love Power" (a duet with Dionne Warwick), "You Should Be Mine (The Woo Woo Song)" (his biggest solo pop charter) and "Only Human," earning four Grammy Award nominations as a solo artist along the way.
In 2018 Osborne released his first soul music album in 13 years. The critically acclaimed 12-song release, "Worth it All," (Artistry/Mack Avenue Records) marked a triumphant return to the genre that catapulted him to international fame. The thoughtfully romantic project explored his 35-plus years of monogamous marriage set to a richly robust and diversified palate of sumptuous soul music. The album featured special guests Gerald Albright on saxophone, Rick Braun on trumpet and included "Work It,"co-written by his son, Jeffrey Osborne Jr.
His music continues to garner new fans through the work of contemporary singers such as Trey Songs, Rick Ross and Young Buck and others who have extensively sampled his work.
