"What does opening up for Bo Diddley at the Bottom Line, soloing at the Blue Note, performing as "sideman" (on oboe, flute, and slide guitar) for John Hall, Jackson Browne, Nanci Griffith, David Amram, and playing oboe full-time in the Nashville Symphony Orchestra have in common?? Well, Marianne Osiel, of course!

Marianne came to New York after already having a successful music career in Nashville, Tennessee, where she could be seen by day playing in the symphony while by (late) night leading her own original band, the "Delta Elements". Her work as a woodwind player in the studio as one of the first-call recording session musicians can be found on many hundreds of CD's coming out of Nashville during the late '80's and '90's. After making her first record ("Strange Girl", Maitri Music), inspired by hearing the string quartet parts on her record, Marianne started getting hired (take OUT "regularly") to write string quartet parts for other singer/songwriters compadres (Susan Piper, Bob Hillman, David Olney, etc.). Her work as a "sideman" is top-notch on numerous levels, in that she knows how to be inside and outside a song at the same time (i.e. support musically while not stepping on the lyrics or meaning behind the lyrics). Since Strange Girl, Marianne has made three other recordings--Full of Wholes (solo singer/songwriter album), How The Light Gets In (improvisational oboe/english horn/keyboard album featuring four New York keyboardist greats), and an EP project she wrote and produced directly following the events of 911, called Peacemeal, with an emphasis on healing by each person in their own process of allowing themselves to express their most difficult feelings in compassionate witnessing. Known more often than not as a "catalyst" herself, Marianne's music will stimulate the numbest of hearts, and invite the passionate in every one of us."
