Artist Bio

"Some Thangs Are STRANGE....
And Then, Some Thangs ARE---N-B!!"

And that is probably what describes Lawrence Wise And The Cosmic Funk Orchestra/OSMOSIS, a dual one-man studio project of Lawrence Wise.

The original project, Lawrence Wise And The Cosmic Funk Orchestra, is a hyper-psychedelic/futuristic-progressive thang that originated around May 1981. Some 8 years later in 1989, came the spin-off OSMOSIS: a wilder, devil-may-care, toss-it-all-to-the-wind, f ...

A SLAP-HAPPY NEW YEAR 2017... from Lawrence Wis And The Cosmic Funk Orchestra/OSMOSIS.

Well, I guess this makes TWO ALBUMS TOO BIG for Amazon CD-on-Demand: Lawrence Wise And The Cosmic Funk Orchestra's "GIT WEIRD!!" (from 2007, by-way-of 1990) clocks-in at 1 Hour and 22 Minutes (including Extras). Meantime, I'm trying to find a less-expensive, but quality-sharp, CD-Duplicator (outside of CDBaby), just for a limited run of a couple hundred.

The (literal!!) equivalent of a DOUBLE-ALBUM Set, Lawrence Wise's "THE SCARLET RAINS OF GALAXIA MINOR" (from 1983) is way too big for Amazon CD-On-Demand, because there's about 1 Hour and 45 Minutes of music on it (and, sadly, I can't get a Double-CD out of it). Maybe, CDBaby?! We'll see.

Guess what? This MARCH, it's time for OSMOSIS to interrupt "YOUR REGULARLY SCHEDULED WORLD"--with the New Album. (As well as some more back catalog, and a few collabs--as WoOF GanG, with O.D. The GREAT, MINROO ARTS and JamBOne-. RAPPADELIC.) The 2016 FUNK BLITZ...is ON!
Wed, Feb 03, 2016 8:09 AM
"SHAKE WHAT YOU GOT, 'CAUSE SOME OTHERS GOT LESS!!" and "FUNK AND CIRCUMSTANCES ("DOGS")"--both by OSMOSIS--are hanging strong at No. 1 and No. 2 (respectively) on The Art Of the Mix "Just Added R&B/SOUL" iTunes Charts after 4 Days (Sun., 1-31-2016 thru Weds., 2-3-2016). Yea... I FUNK just like THAT!
Sat, Dec 19, 2015 12:25 PM
The 1982 Debut Album from Lawrence Wise, "Funkendectomy", entered The ART OF THE MIX "JUST ADDED/R&B-Soul" iTUNES Charts at No. 1 on Friday, December 4, 2015 (the 7th Charted Entry this year). It slid down to No. 100 on Friday, December 18, 2015--after a slow 2-week drop...but bounced back to No. 99 on Saturday, December 19, 2015. POWER to Homegrown Funk!!!
Mon, Nov 16, 2015 4:26 PM
"Walking In The Shadows" by Lawrence Wise And The Cosmic Funk Orchestra ENTERS The ART OF THE MIX "JUST ADDED/R&B-Soul" iTUNES Charts at NUMBER ONE on this date: Monday, November 16, 2015. The 6th Charted Entry this year for Lawrence Wise And The Cosmic Funk Orchestra/OSMOSIS (and WoOF GanG). Yea!

Trying to dig out my old hand-drawn original STARCASE Logo and a vintage picture of the release of WALKING IN THE SHADOWS--after 30 Years--was hard work. Hope iTunes loves the 1985 DIY Look.

"FRANKEN-Funk (It's Dark In Thar!)" by OSMOSIS (feat. The BEATMASTER-1)....debuts at No. 3 on The ART OF THE MIX "JUST ADDED/R&B-Soul" iTUNES Charts, on this date: Wednesday, October 21, 2015!! Hey, FUNK Happens!! And, Songcast gets a big prop for that!
Mon, Oct 19, 2015 1:45 PM
An 2006 classic OSMOSIS Jam, from the old DDoF-Era, "FRANKEN-Funk (It's Dark In Thar!)" (feat. The BEATMASTER-1), has been posted and is now on iTunes...just in time for HALLOWEEN!! Now, DAAAAAAAAAAAANNNNNNNNNNCE!!!
Mon, Sep 21, 2015 7:42 AM
The following Lawrence Wise And The Cosmic Funk Orchestra "Pre-Internet/Cassette-Era" Albums are finally on Songcast and iTunes: January 1985's "THE ICE AGE", September 1988's "NIGHT OF THE LIVING FUNK (. 'THE OTHER SIDE OF HELL')", August 1989's "INDUSTRIAL STRENGTH" (mis-dated as "1998"--in a rush to upload..my bad!), and February 1992's "LIFE IS REALLY STRANGE". COMING by OCTOBER or NOVEMBER: April 2007's "GET WEIRD!!"--itself a "back-dated" album which was slated for 1990. N-joy!

On the Lawrence Wise And The Cosmic Funk Orchestra/OSMOSIS front, my back catalog of previously unreleased cassette-albums (some dating back to the early 1980s) are steadily hitting iTunes. I've been trying to remaster them for the past decade, but these are cassette-album masters, and the sound "shows". No prob--they're finally seeing the light of day. No Shame, Either!!
Mon, Sep 21, 2015 7:32 AM
WoOF GanG (with core members OSMOSIS and O.D. The GREAT, and now new additions MINROO ARTS and RAPPADELIC) have just dropped our latest, "IT'S ABOUT 2B A SHOWDOWN", on Songcast, YouTube, Facebook, and the world!!
Wed, Jun 17, 2015 6:52 AM
You talk about an ever-impressive catalog: FIVE (5) OSMOSIS Albums, and 20 Matching Singles.... FIVE (5) LAWRENCE WISE AND THE COSMIC FUNK ORCHESTRA Albums, and 5 Matching Singles.... plus a couple of Collab Singles (with MAXIMUM/RAPPADELIC). And, Summer 2015 has only begun. Hey...the power of a back-catalog.
Thu, May 28, 2015 9:39 AM
Ya'll confused because there's an OSMOSIS Single and Lawrence Wise And The Cosmic Funk Orchestra Album BOTH named "Life Is Really Strange"? DON'T BE....on predated the other by close to 3 years, and different styles. N-Joy the FUNK!
Sat, Feb 21, 2015 3:24 PM
The reconfigured 2006 OSMOSIS MP3-Album "All Up In MySpace!!", and it's respective singles, are making their iTunes and RADIO Debuts in late-February/early-March. This is NOT COUNTING the brand new 2015 OSMOSIS and Lawrence Wise And The Cosmic Funk Orchestra songs that are on the way. BACK CATALOG--You GOT It....You POST it!! Dig.

"In The Beginning, There Was..." by Lawrence Wise And The Cosmic Funk Orchestra--sort of an Archival Compilation of tracks from the 1980s, with the exception of the album's single: "Share This World". Only difference between the album version and the single is that the album totals a full 7 minutes. N-Joy The Funk!

Thu, Jan 01, 2015 1:12 PM
The brand new Lawrence Wise And The Cosmic Funk Orchestra album, "PsycheCosmicFunkeDelix", and it's companion first single, "I Like To BREAK Thangs!", are both up and running in this first week of January 2015. Never resting on my laurels. N-Joy The Funk---Brand New OSMOSIS by late Spring 2015.
Wed, Dec 17, 2014 3:47 PM
Brand new Lawrence Wise And The Cosmic Funk Orchestra coming in January 2015.
Tue, Nov 04, 2014 5:51 AM
The . ALL-STARS (Ned C. Wise, Lawrence Wise--and guest Owen Ray Riley) were an off-shoot of TOTAL GROOVE CONNECTION ad LAWRENCE WISE AND THE COSMIC FUNK ORCHESTRA in 1983. Only 3 tracks were recorded; mainly, they were raw, demo-quality slap-dash jams. Of the 3, TWO will be posted on SongCast in the near future: "Future Rock (Martian Groove)" and "Funk And Circumstances". N-Joy the homegrown funk from DC.

Coming soon to SongCastRadio R-n-B Genre: "GET YO BUTT HOME NOW", by LAWRENCE WISE feat. MAXIMUM/RAPPADELIC. The 4th Collab between Lawrence Wise And The Cosmic Funk Orchestra/OSMOSIS AND MAXIMUM/RAPPADELIC. This will also be a Joint-Label release on BOTH LUNCHVILLE RECORDZ and STARCASE REC. CO., LTD.--under the KINTERTAINMENT (Kimbel Bros.) banner. Also, at the very top of 2015, expect the first, all-new LAWRENCE WISE AND THE COSMIC FUNK ORCHESTRA album in almost 7 years. Let's FUNK!
Wed, Oct 15, 2014 8:20 AM
Massive collab-projects with The Kimbel Bros. of KINTERTAINMENT, new Lawrence Wise And The Cosmic Funk Orchestra, new OSMOSIS, and something from the Wise Family ARCHIVES---all coming soon, before 2014 is out. Thank you SongCast for helping with the distribution, exposure, and amping up the creativity levels.

Not stopping---expanding and getting funkier. Expect newer OSMOSIS songs, as well as Lawrence Wise And The Cosmic Funk Orchestra. It's gonna be MEAN, ya'll!!
Tue, Jul 29, 2014 10:30 AM
Just uploaded a Lawrence Wise And The Cosmic Funk Orchestra sci-fi project that I've been doctoring since 2007---yea, that long (and the sound of the tracks proves it). "2087-UNITED PLANETARY FUNK" will make it's Radio Debut HERE on SongCast. And, over the next few months, I'm going to be rotating 4 songs from that album, as part of the story narrative. It's a Sci-Fi/Funk Voyage. N-Joy.
Sun, Jul 27, 2014 7:59 PM
Now adding tracks and albums under BOTH Names, Lawrence Wise And The Cosmic Funk Orchestra, and OSMOSIS. Prepare for a dual-funk Blast!! -Lawrence Wise (. OSMOSIS)
Wed, May 21, 2014 12:06 PM
SongCast WORKS!!! Once iTunes pops up for your song/album, then Amazon follows, and the other stores fall in, one after another. Yea, THIS ARTIST (OSMOSIS) loves it!! 500%!!

Fri, May 16, 2014 10:23 AM
