"... A Smooth but Twisting Journey."

"It is easily an album where you can discover something new to enjoy on each listen. Each track segues into the other effortlessly but not predictably, making this album very pleasing to listen to straight through, an important but all too often missed part of a first-class album. Be sure to catch them live. Backside Pick's enthusiasm is contagious; they obviously loved every second of performing."

-Jenny Buchan

"...Funky Dance Music"

"Ottley and his band mates have created a very unique live music experience with Backside Pick, which has been translated perfectly to their new album."

Josh Hogan - Pegasus News


Album "Higher Place" 2009
Ep "Like I Do" 2007



Informed-disciplined-creative-original-harmonic chops as a group. As individuals, mastery of instrument, form, groove, control. Those things matter only peripherally when the feet feel the need to move your lazy cheeks to the dance floor. Listening to Backside Pick is not a passive experience. You gotta get involved. Backside Pick's chops were no accident. They were hacked, honed, hammered and hardened by the music rigors at the University of North Texas, a place notorious for inspiring serious dedication to their craft. Funky, danceable rhythms set down by driving bass and crisp percussion … infectious lyrics … clever hooks. Fat grooves sit in the pocket like Sly & the Family
Stone … stories unfold like Stevie Wonder … harmonies pitch like Jamiroquai. Oh, and the horns? Tower of Power, baby. Backside Pick ignites the Dallas scene, sharing the stage with acts such as Polyphonic Spree, Mingo Fishtrap, Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey, Papa Grows Funk, Snarky Puppy, Jonathon Tyler and the Northern Lights. When you check ‘em out, wear your dance shoes and get ready for an inclusive, positive, dance-your-butt-off kind of night.
