Throughout, Osborne looks at social issues from the inside, and converts angst into serious questions about the validity of feelings, the queasy evolution of consumer culture and more.

I feel like I represent the average guy who has the same problems as anyone else. The goal of my music is to be therapeutic to people. I want to have a song that fits any mood someone is in. A song for when you're sad, a song for when you’re just smoking a cig by yourself, and of course a song for when you are tryna get lit,” says Osborne. Along with writing and producing his independent works, he is in a Nashville band, Thank You Please.
