You will find our hometown sweetheart is the real deal, touring year round and out there somewhere criss-crossing the American black top right now, living the song writers life with nothing but the fans that love her to call home. "She has enough power to fuel a fire and enough soul to make James Brown proud." - Rachel May, Detroit News Real Detroit gives Charmed 4 1/2 stars out of 5 stars. 5 stars is considered an essential recording. BRAGGING RIGHTS: *Sista Otis' most recent recording Charmed(9th Ward Records), TBR in the Fall is Produced by, Norwood Fisher (world famous punk/funk pioneer and founding member of Fishbone) and Jimmy Sloan of King Sound Studios(Ben Harper, Blind Boys Of Alabama, Jack Johnson) *Sista Otis has opened for Blues Traveler, Michael Franti, Zac Brown Band, Rusted Root, Kenny Olson, and Bitch and Animal.

Sista serves up Janis Joplin-inspired 1960s Rock mingled with flavors of funk, soul, and urban folk in socially conscious songs." -Mark Davis, The Advocate Also hailing from the Midwest, Detroit to be exact, is Sista Otis with the feverish fervor of a faith healer. Otis rolls through a series of songs that sound as if she were baptized in funk, modern rock and the blues, Bringing the listener to the brink of testifying. -Gregg Shapiro, Windy City Times "Sista Otis has got to be one of the best songwriters to hit Detroit in a very long time." -Aimee Spencer, Real Detroit "One listen leaves little doubt that Otis is on her way out of the shadows of the gritty, "urban folk" genre she helped create and on her way into the mainstream. But that's OK. Perhaps it's the mainstream that needs this prophetess most of all." -Jason Michael, Between The Lines "Worldwide Release holds the potential as the record that can break open the national scene for Sista Otis. And it's a great album, full of the variety and depth that Otis is known for. Each song sounds fresh and different from each other, a feat not often accomplished by music groups either through fear or inexperience." -Lucie Bourgeau, The South End

Growing up in a musical home, Bri was given a mic at the age of 2 and hasn't put it down since. She plays both piano & guitar with little to no lessons & almost all by ear. "For as long as I can remember music has been a part of me. It's like it chose me. It's what I was born to do." Her music is inspired by faith, humanity, nature, and artists of great influence: Coldplay, Switchfoot, Joseph, Carrie Underwood, Taylor Swift, & many others.
