A pianist-singer-songwriter, trumpeter, composer, a participant on a GRAMMY® Winning and on two GRAMMY® Nominated projects as a contributing artist, arranger, producer, Otey routinely performs at numerous venues in central New Jersey. His scope of performances also extends regularly to the Philadelphia area with countless private parties along the Main Line, as well as at public forums such as the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, World Café Live and Harrah’s Casino to his credit. He was honored to have performed at the White House Egg Roll event in 2010 with Miss Amy, and has appeared at Bethlehem Musikfest and other festivals along the east coast.

In addition, Otey hosts The Trenton Jazz Show aired though WWFM JazzOn2 89.1 HD2

Otey began his musical career with classical training of trumpet and percussion, starting lessons at age 7 and adding piano and singing to his skill set as a teenager.  Influenced by music of the 70's and performers such as Billy Joel and Elton John, Otey began performing "piano man" style entertaining while in high school.  Other influences such as Harry Connick Jr. and the swing era have shaped Otey's style to range from Sinatra ballads and jazz standards though Beatles, Van Morrison and Sting hits.

Otey's father, concert pianist and Curtis scholarship recipient Orlando Otey, was Executive Director of the Wilmington Music School during the youngster's upbringing providing him an early formal musical education.  Appearing with the Wilmington Symphony as an early teenager along with competing in music competitions including Tri-County, Otey continued to study trumpet with Seymor Rosenfeld of the Philadelphia Orchestra until the age of 18.

Through his teen and young adult years Otey performed with jazz bands and orchestras, and formed a few small ensembles, including the APO Jazz Trio, performing in and around Philadelphia.

Otey has performed with a number of prominent jazz musicians including Lew Soloff, Sonny Stitt, played lead trumpet with Richie Cole, and recorded with Grover Washington Jr. on the Skylarking album.  Currently, Otey performs as a solo act, as well as with some West Trenton based groups including Off The Map With Miss Amy, an Americana Rock band that Otey formed, and with Miss Amy & Her Big Kids Band that has performed at the White House Egg Roll Event 2010, Bethlehem Musikfest, the NERFA Showcase, World Cafe and several other family oriented locations.

Being the founder and president of the audio production company Ionian Productions, Inc. Otey has engineered and/or produced notable recordings such as A Gift To Be Free, and GRAMMY® entered Underwater, Wide Wide World, I Wanna Know How It Works!, The Chopin of Mexico Plays Chopin 1&2, Tenochtitlán 1325, Angels Riding ShotgunAngel Blessings (Benefiting Hospice), and GRAMMY® Nominated Fitness Rock & Roll.
