The Dirty Rooks' have produced two albums. Their first, self-titled, release (2007) was recorded at Blue Room Studio by Edgars Legzdin and was mastered by Tom Bethel at Acoustik Musik, Ltd in Akron, Ohio.
Their second album, Sugar Mama, (2010) was recorded in Chicago at Giant Squid Audio and was mastered by Mike Hagler, who has worked with artists including Wilco, Jon Langford/The Mekons, The Redwalls, and The New Pornographers, at King Size Audio Labs.
The group draws inspiration from Sly Stone and Miles Davis as well as from the living legends of today. Front-woman, Jessica Ott and the boys can hold a heavy groove like a funk band, listen to each other like jazz musicians, and write memorable and meaningful songs like a soul group. Otis aspires to stand side by side with artists like Soulive, Roy Hargrove, D'angelo, Erykah Badu and Little Dragon, and join the ranks of the "new soul" movement; an infectious and eclectic sound that takes cues from many styles of music to set the standard for modern-day soulful music.
Song-craft, spontaneity, and improvisation come together each night so that no two shows are the same. But above all other aspirations, Otis wants to show each and every listener and audience member a good time by sharing their passion for music as a form of art and the human condition.
