R.S. Review


Forty three years after a primary school teacher told him he couldn't sing Ian Francis Osborne decided to ignore him and sing his songs of love, laughter and the laundry.
After further years of singular introspection and strumming behind the bedroom door and the nom de pluck 'The Dolphin Post' (a one man band that split up citing "musical similarities" Ian came out into the sunshine squinting, and surprised to find himself sitting centre stage surrounded by a five piece band.
The Osborne Files quickly grew a reputation on the bustling and vibrant Norwich and Norfolk music scene, until quite unexpectedly Ian suddenly found himself packing bags and guitars for a new life in Spain.
"It was so hard leaving the band behind, luckily the interwebby thing keeps us in touch as friends and musicians. I now record with old friends and new ones from around the world. I am a very lucky boy to have such gifted and fine friends who want to join me in my songs"
Ian's most recent album is "the luxury of small differences" and is available from all the usual reputable places.
