*Before ever stepping out as a solo artist, Jeffrey Osborne a/k/a “JO,” had earned the respect of music fans as a bonafide singer, when in the 1970s he was the lead vocalist for the R&B/funk band, L.T.D.   The group charted with such songs as “(Every Time I Turn Around)Back in Love Again,” “Holding On (When Love is Gone,” “We Both Deserve Each Other’s Love,” and of course, the timeless and beautiful “Love Ballad.”

For Osborne, the music and recording industry has evolved over the past five decades, and not always for the best.

“Everything has changed since I started recording in 1972,” Osborne said. “But the very things that have opened this industry, like the digital platforms to reach more people, have also killed things that were happening before in the recording studio.  Now, most of the time, there are no real musicians in the studio; its people with sequencers and things.  Therefore, there’s no breath or depth in today’s music.”

While Osborne still loves recording, it’s the live performances that he most looks forward to.

“The only real satisfaction is live performances,” explained Osborne.  “That’s when you can actually get some feedback from what you’re doing.  You get that artist-to-audience chemistry. I love it!”

With his new album, Worth It All (available now), Osborne fans can expect that he will do his share of live performances.  However, don’t look for extended tours.

“I really don’t tour anymore,” said Osborne.  “I’m more of a weekend warrior, and during the week I’m home with my family.  I’m not going go out on the road for two months anymore.  I don’t have to do that, and I don’t want to do that.  But I still love and enjoy the artist-to-audience interaction that live performances present, so I won’t ever stop doing what I like doing at live stage performances.  It’s just that I can pick and choose when I go out.”
