"I am very excited about this new album," explains Otis "
I have written with the influence of my Blues mentors in mind but also
thrown in contemporary attitudes and stylings that I like. PERFUME stands
for the beauty and soul Blues. GRIME stands for my hard-hitting and nasty
style of guitar playing."
- he's so good , it's scary."
- West Coast Blues Review, 1996

off of the top spot." Steve Cooke Blueprint Sept/ 96
