"Blessings to everyone during these difficult times! I was due to make my debut at Buddy Guy’s Legends in Chicago on Friday, June 19th 2020 backed by one of Chicago's own, The Corey Dennison Band , and sadly my milestone show was cancelled due to this horrible pandemic. I did get the opportunity to share the stage at Legends in January of 2020, sitting in with Netherlands Guitarist/Singer, Billy TK Jr. that opened up for Buddy Guy’s last residency show. And will get rescheduled as soon as things open up! My 2016 EP of Blues-Rock Originals "Queen Bee" is now on worldwide online digital distribution that was recorded at the fabulous Greaseland Studios in San Jose, CA, including for digital download through my website.
Thank you all for your continued support! Wishing you all love, light and music to feed your soul!" - Otilia
