With notable talent and the potential to impact the music industry on an international level, Otty stands out from a troupe of upcoming British artists. His current single, ‘Words’ (available for download on iTunes) was nominated for ‘Best Unsigned Song’ by the Unsigned Music Awards panel. Undoubtedly this is a sign of what’s to come. His sound, which draws comparisons with luminaries such as John Legend and Luther Vandross oozes soul, yet accommodates Jazz, Gospel and Hip-Hop. Put simply, this young man is a singer songwriter to be reckoned with.
Otty’s musical abilities have seen him share the stage with the likes of the late Amy Winehouse, Grammy-nominee Jonathan Butler and jazz standout, Kirk Whalum.
Otty ranked 3rd in the urban and pop category of Live and Unsigned – the biggest original music competition in the UK for unsigned bands and artists. And it is live that Otty’s uniqueness is best illustrated, as his reputation for compelling live performances would attest.
Otty’s soulful blend fit perfectly with the Ambassador band vibe and works perfectly alongside the other vocalists in the band. Otty always looks great and sounds amazing and is an asset to the Ambassador line up!
