Following an extensive background performing at venues across London and being shortlisted for Best Urban Act at the Unsigned Music Awards last year, rising UK soul artist Otis Simpson, drops his first official release “Army“.
The first offering from his forthcoming EP, “Army comes co-produced by a team of talented producers, including Jonny Coffer and Johnny Dunne, showcasing a throwback, modern-tipped Soul sound both emotive and vivid. It’s a rousing number brought to life through a medley of beautifully immersive live instruments, especially that lively horn section, and of course Otis’ rugged soul of a voice, which swells with power with the hook.
Drawing inspiration from a diverse range of muses – from Michael Jackson to Prince to The Beatles – the rising artist has been busy in the studio perfecting his sound, the result being a fresh new project that will underline his credentials – reminiscent to the talents of singer-songwriters Anderson Paak and MAJOR. Get ready to hear a lot more from this impressive new talent in 2019.
