Otis B. (Bass), was born in East Central Ohio. Being the youngest of 10 children of a musical household, there was always a musical instrument to play, so it was no surprise that it came natural to him. When Otis was in the 7th grade he formed a group with 2 of his best friends which later reformed in New York City as adults. Otis also sessioned with several other groups as a percussionist. After the demise of the band, he moved back to Ohio where he honed his skills in engineering Gospel and Pop, and Hip-Hop.
Some of Otis B.'s influences on Bass include Victor Wooten, Marcus Miller, Rocco Prestia, and Flea. He feels that "music is the healer", and it connects us all as people throughout the world.
