Guide Review - Days of our Lives - James Otto
With a vocal and musical style thats close to both Travis Tritt and Montgomery Gentry, Otto kicks off his debut album with the fun stompin track Long Way Down. After the nice ballad Misspent Youth, James kicks into high gear again with the charming and sexy Miss Temptation. In The Song Of The Violin James has written a wonderful and sweet song for his grandparents that would make a great hit. The previously mentioned singles The Ball and the Top 30 hit Days Of Our Lives both showcase James strong balladeer skills. Another ballad Lowdown On The Highlife is a song with a double entendre in that it can be about following in an alcoholic or singers footsteps despite warning not to.
With an album that is paced nicely and is packed with potential singles, James Otto has finally arrived. Hopefully, James and his deep, rich and emotive voice will find a home on radio. If you like country/rock, or any artist mentioned above, then youll certainly enjoy James Ottos great debut Days Of Our Lives.
