News update July 2013

Hi everyone.
First, thanks to everyone who came to the Double Single launch at 505 last month. It was a huge success and it was great to see so many people up and dancing! There are a number of great reviews for the gig, plus we have some cool you tube footage. Mister Ott now has it’s own website and we have 4 gigs in Sydney over the next 4 months.


  • MISTER OTT Debut for SIMA – August 10th 2013


Mister Ott is performing its debut for SIMA, and I’m lucky to be their poster boy for their new program. I have played the Sound Lounge stage so many times over the years and I can’t wait to hear my new music there. Very exciting. There is something special about this stage, or maybe its the audience, but every time I play here I feel inspired to play my best.

In the band for this evening will be regulars Ellen Kirkwood – trumpet, Eden Ottignon – bass, Dan Kennedy – drums. Special guests for the night are Carl Morgan – guitar and Luke Sweeting – piano and organ. Carl is a fantastic soloist with chops to burn who played with us last at Jazzgroove in March. I played with Luke in Canberra last November and he really embraced the Ethiopian roots of the music. His sound on hammond organ is one of the best I’ve heard.

  • New You Tube footage

At the last gig at 505 I was lucky enough to get some camera footage of Mister Ott and combined it with the desk recording. So now we have some new and improved You Tube footage. One clip features dancers Eden and Bubsy. One clip features dancers Miguel and Fenix and one clip features the audience! Also if you haven’t checked it out already, go see the clip of the single Mattaraja – directed by the one and only Rachael Brown!

The two debut singles are available on cd baby, itunes, emusic, amazon, spotify and pretty much any online site for purchasing music. I haven’t figured out how to do the cool links yet but if you want to buy, just go to your favourite site and type in Mister Ott Mattaraja or Mister Ott Take It Higher and they will pop up.
