Wednesday 2pm ET: Feature Artist – Jeffrey Osborne

Jeffrey Linton Osborne (born March 9, 1948) is an American Grammy–nominated singer–songwriter, musician and lyricist. Osborne is the former drummer and lead singer of the American R&B/Soul group L.T.D.; with whom he began his musical career in 1970.

L.T.D. is an American R&B/funk band best known for their 1977 hit single, “(Every Time I Turn Around) Back in Love Again” and “Holding On (When Love Is Gone)”, as well as their many ballads, such as “Love Ballad”, “We Both Deserve Each Other’s Love”, and “Where Did We Go Wrong?”.

L.T.D. (which stands for Love, Togetherness, and Devotion), was formed in Greensboro, North Carolina, in 1968, when Arthur “Lorenzo” Carnegie (alto and tenor saxes, flute, guitar), Jake Riley (trombone) Carle Wayne Vickers (trumpet, flute, soprano sax) and Abraham “Onion” Miller (tenor sax, vocals), who had been working as members of the 15 piece “Fantastic Soul Men Orchestra” backing the ever popular duo of Sam & Dave, along with Jimmy “J.D.” Davis (keyboards, vocals), formed their own band named Love Men Ltd. They then drove to New York City, in a car that they purchased together (a 1956 Chevy), and lived in the Hamilton Heights section of Harlem on 149th and Broadway, where Toby Wynn (baritone sax) joined them. While performing on a gig in Providence, Rhode Island, Jeffrey Osborne (drums, lead vocals) was recruited by them.
