Otis Clay Interview 2012

When Otis passed in early 2016, the world lost one of the most expressive voices in all of Southern Soul. From his beginnings in Chicago through his time in Muscle Shoals and Memphis at Willie Mitchell’s Royal Recording studios, Otis was truly one of the great voices in American R&B. We talk to him about his career and his brand new release, in 2012, “Truth Is.”
