Otis is the son of rhythm and blues pioneer Johnny Otis. He began performing professionally with his father's band at the age of twelve, often disguising himself with dark glasses and a false mustache so that he could play in after-hours nightclubs. Otis, primarily known as a guitarist, also sings and plays a multitude of other instruments. While growing up with and being heavily influenced by many blues, jazz and R&B musicians in his father Johnny's immediate circle, Otis began to gravitate towards the popular music of his generation such as Sly Stone, Jimi Hendrix and Arthur Lee of the band Love. « hide
