Welcome to my website! See those quotes? Well that's me! I am a singer-songwriter who is passionate about tone, soul and musicality – and apparently kinda good looking. Enjoy the site as I'd love for you to join me on my musical journey. Let the games begin!
Otty stands out from a troupe of upcoming artistes with his undoubted talent. His debut single, 'Words' was nominated for 'Best Unsigned Song' by the Unsigned Music Awards panel. His sound draws comparisons with luminaries such as John Legend and Luther Vandross as he effortlessly oozes soul, 'cool' and charisma. Put simply, Otty is a singer-songwriter to be reckoned with.
Complementing his vocals is an infectious personality and passion for life and music. His songs typically challenge, encourage and are witty. Shades of this can be heard on Otty's most recent release, 'State of the Art' which, alongside original material, largely features creative covers from artists such as Emeli Sande, Pharrell Williams, Labrinth and more. His musical abilities have seen him share the stage with the likes of the late Amy Winehouse and open for Grammy-nominee Jonathan Butler. And it is live that Otty's uniqueness is best illustrated, as his reputation for compelling live performances would attest. All of this supported by an arsenal of quality songs and a seriously talented band, means that there's never been a better time to sit up and pay attention. Don't say that you were not told!
If you've been to one of Otty's shows you have surely seen the bowtie. Bespoke ones. Colourful ones. Vintage ones. They've caused somewhat of a stir. Ever wondered what the inspiration was? Read on for Otty to satisfy your curiosity…
It was a couple of years ago when I was trying to think of something to complement my style and personality. I had previously tried a couple of things like wearing shades on stage or a variety of hats but never felt totally comfortable with those.
Then literally I slept one night and dreamt about the bow tie. This is weird because I never previously wore them! I love them because I can rock them as smart wear or casually, and that's why I feel it is appreciated by older fans as well as they younger and perhaps trendier fans. I'm happy for it to be something that people recognise me by.
