Hi Ott! I was so stoked to hear you're coming back to Vancouver. It was the absolute best concert I've ever been to--and best time I've had dancing--and I've been to many. It was magical.
Several people I've met (whom I did not know before) said the exact same thing. So, all we ask is PLEASE PLEASE play some of your "old" stuff from that concert. I think it was in 2011. I also LOVE Squirrel and Biscuits. Such creative song titles!
Also, will you be bringing any CDs this time? I love to buy CDs and get them signed by artists I like, so it would be great.
I'm flying between gigs and I'm right up to my baggage limit so I don't have any CDs with me. But you can order them here and request that I sign them:
As this is an album release tour I'm obviously going to be playing my new record, but there is some of the older stuff in there too.
Hi Ott, you mention Cardiacs as an influence and you credit Tim, Jim, Sarah, William, Dominic, and Tim Q early in the Book Of Awesome. Speaking as a fellow Cardiacs pondie from the '80s I can definitely hear Tim's influence in places in your work. I was wondering did you ever work with them or see them live?Ott responded on 10/14/2015 Next question
Have you ever gotten a massage to your own music? I massage my horses to the tempo and arrangements of your tracks...and it's tried and true, a pasture of laid out horses is a sight to behold. A Shower of Sparks massage to the beat and ebbs and flows will lay a 1700 pound mare out like a wilted daisy on a warm day...do these beautiful compilations just randomly manifest, or do you lay out some kind of basic skeleton and go from there. I'm just saying, the music is even influential to other species :)Ott responded on 10/14/2015
