FLINT TWP. — Summer Osborne has a way with words, which she puts to music in a genre-defying style labeled folk soul, acoustic rock, and piano pop with touches of jazz, blues, and roots music.
Described as one of the hottest new voices in the Women’s Music Scene, Osborne will perform live in concert at 7 p.m. Thursday, March 26 at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation Church, 2474 South Ballenger Highway.
“An award winning singer-songwriter from St. Louis, Missouri, Osborne’s powerful vocals and artful storytelling address the human condition,” according to a press release.
“ Her kaleidoscope of music is infused with her charismatic stage presence and humorous personality.”
Awards from her eighth album, “As I Am,” include the Best Song with a Social Message in 2014 for “This is Your Call,” from RightOut TV.

When not touring, Osborne and her manager /wife, Lori, reside on a family farm in Vandalia, IL.

“I do this because I believe I have
something to say
And I believe what I have to say is
And that is: We CAN be the change
we want to see
And together, that WILL change the
It’s the microcosm of the macrocosm
And I know it sounds cliché, but that’s
because it’s simple
And that’s because it’s true
You see… this life is a river.
And sometimes it’s rapid, and sometimes it’s lazy
But either way, you cannot stop it, and
you cannot reverse it
Your only job is to put your boat in the
river wherever you are… and just… go”
