sista-otis-photo-by-cm-bjornbergFollowing up on her October tour that saw New Orleans-based Sista Otis making stops in Southern and Central Oregon, the talented songwriting guitarist will be making a return whirlwind three-night, five-show run through Portland, Corvalis, and Hood River.

Renowned for her bluesy soul performances, Sista Otis cut her musical teeth as a traveling, street-kid performer, writing and singing her songs for pocket change, to later become a national touring and international recording artist. Originally from Detroit,  her 2004 breakout recording, Worldwide Release, generated high acclaim and airplay in twelve countries around the world. It received praise from publications such as Rolling Stone and The Advocate who called her one of the top ten indie artists to see live in the United States. The Detroit News described her as having “enough power to fuel a fire and enough soul to make James Brown proud.”

She will be performing at the following locations:

Thursday, Nov 3 – Bombs Away Café, 2527 NW Monroe Avenue in Corvalis at 8:00 pm.

Friday, Nov 4 – Duff’s Garage, 2530 NE 82nd in Portland at 6:00 pm.
