    Remember that '90s hit that went "What if God was one of us?" Well, its singer Joan Osborne kicks off her national tour with two New York City Winery performances March 27 and March 28 that will feature her hits and new songs from her brand new album, Bring It on Home, which drops March 27 via Saguaro Road Records.

    The first leg of the tour continues through mid-April and includes markets such as Philadelphia, Charlotte, Nashville and Louisville. Ms. Osborne will hit the road again later in the spring and summer with dates in the midwest and on the West Coast.

    During the first leg of her North American tour, Joan will make special appearances on several national NPR radio shows including the prestigious "Mountain Stage," nationally syndicated program "Blue Plate Special," leading radio station WXPN's "Free At Noon" performance hour and more.

    Bring It on Home is Osborne's first album of hand-picked vintage blues and soul songs, a collection that fans have long been asking for and Osborne herself delighted in making.

    Produced by Joan and her longtime music director/guitarist Jack Petruzzelli, they were joined by Joan's longtime bandmates as well as guests Barbecue Bob Pomeroy (harmonica), Allen Toussaint (piano on his own "Shoorah! Shoorah!") and vocalists The Holmes Brothers and Rufus Thomas' daughter, Vaneese Thomas. Jimmy Vivino, the musical director of the Conan O'Brien Show band, assembled all horn arrangements and also played electric piano on "I Don't Need No Doctor."
