In Their Words: “When the Relish album came out I had already done years of shows around the Northeast, but I think this was my first time visiting LA. I had one of those crazy Hollywood experiences of seeing my face on a billboard on Sunset Boulevard on our way to the radio station, and it was totally surreal: I mean I was pleased but that kind of thing was never a goal of mine.

“I remember feeling that the band and I were very much in synch on this day; we had been playing these songs for weeks on tour already and we felt relaxed and confident. I was listening to a lot of the great qawwali singer Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan in the van during this time and you might hear a little bit of that influence in my performance.” — Joan Osborne
