The real folk shit - Otis Gibbs

Otis Gibbs is the real deal; a long haired, tattoed, communist country-folk singer. This is what Woody Gutherie would sound and look like if he was alive today.

Otis is based out of Indianapolis but I'm guessing that doesn't really matter to him as he has been hoboing across the world for decades. He's planted 5000 trees along the way. Since his 2004 release One Day Our Whispers; he has transplantd to Nashville, Europe and a few other parts in between. Otis has been in the studio working on his latest release (Untitled) with some of Nashville's legednary players. Here's one from the new one (2004) visit his MySpace page for more streaming songs from his catalog.

See Otis Friday August 11th as part of MMS at The Jazz Kitchen, or at the Electrovoice Main Stage on Thursday August 10 with his full bluegrass band.
