Otis Jackson is a Balladeer.
Otis Jackson was born in Shreveport, Louisiana, and moved to Oxnard, California with his family when he was a young boy. While attending school, he sang in the choir, the A Cappella choir, and also sang lead in the church choir. As a teen, he entered several talent shows, singing R&B and ballads, winning top honors each time. He soon was noticed and wooed by several record labels, including Double Shot and Motown, signing with Royal Crest Records and recording “Lease On My Heart”.
Otis has performed on shows and toured extensively throughout the United States with several popular acts. The Whispers, Ike and Tina Turner, O C Smith, Lou Rawls, Charles Wright and the 103rd Street Watts Band are a few of the acts with which he has performed. He was signed with Mega Records and recorded “Message To The Ghetto”. He toured for a few more years and made the unselfish decision to take a sabbatical from music to help raise his family. When his sons were teens and showed an interest in the field of entertainment, Otis started an independent record label, Crate Diggas Palace Records (CDP Records), invested in his sons and their crew (the Lootpack (inclusive of Madlib, Wild Child and DJ Romes), Oh No, Declaime, Kankick, Medaphoar, God’s Gift, and Kazi) and helped to groom and guide their development in the music of their choice, Underground Hip Hop.
Now that his sons, Madlib and Oh No the Disrupt, are on their own and doing well with their producing, rapping and DJ’ing, Otis and his wife, Sinesca Faddis-Jackson, have completed a collection of R&B love songs beautifully encapsulated in an album entitled “The Art of Love”. His two sons, Madlib and Oh No the Disrupt, who have produced and performed nationally and globally and are well known in the Underground Hip Hop genre all over the world, were asked by Otis to join in the project and produce their creative remixes of a couple of songs to be featured on the album. “The Art of Love” was created from this family collaboration. Otis Jackson is now poised to burst out of obscurity with this collection of love songs.
His powerful voice resonates with silky, smooth soul inspired by legendary artists like Barry White and Isaac Hayes. Otis takes this classic balladeer style and incorporates it with a fusion of funky base lines and melodic guitar to soothe the senses.
He exudes emotion. Soulful and deep, his vocalizations expose his heartfelt expressions of love. He takes the listener through a lustful journey of life and love. He pulls at your heartstrings through his love songs such as with “Look What You Have Done To My Heart”. Imagine being curled up on a big fluffy bear rug or overstuffed sofa in front of a fireplace with the one you love. “Don’t Ya’ Know It’s Getting’ Better” expresses a timely sophistication and commitment to love with this very talented singer. Otis’ R&B style has a soulful essence that allows you to enjoy easy listening combined with a Funk groove like no other. Do you want to feel a little Funk with an old school flavor? Spin “It’s All The Same”.
“The Art of Love” is the answer to love songs for the lovers out there who want to be in love, who are in love, and those who were in love at some point in their lives and want to remember it.
This is a call to everyone who is longing for love. Listeners can have it all from the new album release, Otis Jackson “The Art of Love” featuring bonus remixes from Oh No the Disrupt & Madlib.
