Drenched in soul, nestled deep in a groove, OTiS is the product of time and experience. The band strings together sounds that have deeply influenced their lives to create music inspired by everything from soul to funk and back again. Singer Craig Alan had a dream to unite like-minded, passionate musicians, and his dreams are most certainly coming true. Since 2009, the Brooklyn band’s presence has been on the map, but in the last year they’ve solidified a reputation as a show stopping live act, with powerful musicianship and song writing chops to boot.
OTiS has recently made appearances at the cult-favorite Montauk Music Festival and the highly anticipated Escape2NY Music Festival. They remain in the rotation of NYC’s hottest venues including Southpaw, Sullivan Hall, and their new favorite, Rockwood Music Hall, on Manhattan’s Lower East Side.
Be sure to catch their debut music video “Automatic People” premiering this Fall, filmed entirely on the streets of Brooklyn. Directly following the video’s release, OTiS is very excited for the launch of their second album, “Music Elevator.” This exceptional follow up to their self-titled debut album, “OTiS” (2009), promises to get bodies and minds moving in the right direction. Look for it on iTunes, Amazon and CD Baby.
