Otto standing outdoors in wooded backdrop, wearing a teal sports coat and black turtleneck sweater, looking updwardUK music artist Otto found excitement over the press coverage for his summer release “Amelia.” There was a noteworthy moment leading up to this excitement. Otto caught the attention of Eurythmics co founder Dave Stewart.

Otto had been holed up in his historic post office apartment when we last spoke, but the solitude allowed Otto to do a good deal of songwriting and recording.

In this conversation Otto details his excitement over the press coverage for “Amelia,” which included an interview with BBC Radio presenter Janice Long and the attention he received from various BBC Radio outlets. We also had a laugh about his love/hate relationship with social media. Yes he still does his own social media posts. Please enjoy!
