All original music spanning decades of work. Fanfare Magazine 2012 Orlando Otey played the piano with panache and considerable skill, reveling in music’s capacity for passionate extroversion as well as lyrical reflection. His compositions reflect a genuine talent, curious about modern trends (but stopping short of atonality) and capable of fashioning diverse influences into a convincing artistic statement.

Exposed Vocals 2015 Overall, this is an excellent E.P. that showcases Amy Otey’s considerable talents as a singer and songwriter… The production and musicianship is faultless and several songs here are potential radio hits, with a commercial sound. There is a warmth and humanity in the songs that people will take to their heart, which is not something you can say about much of modern music. I’m sure that this E.P. will find huge popularity with the public and Amy Otey’s fast rising star will continue in the ascendance. Alex Faulkner

Angels Riding Shotgun
The Hollywood Reporter
Miss Amy always made music that kids can rock out to, but what about the adults? Finally, here’s an album for the parents- a smart look at life with messages of finding your way without a road map and using your heart as a guide! Even better: it’s an Americana fiesta you can groove to, particularly the title-song, “Off the Map,” and the country-infused track, “Angels Riding Shotgun.” Perfect for a long drive or a journey into the adult mind! ~ Michele Angermiller
