Biography

About The Other Otherz:
A few too many drinks during a Super Bowl party forced lead guitarist Jeff to stay over at drummer Susette's house. The next morning over coffee they got up and started jamming. They clicked instantly, wrote some great songs and "THE OTHER OTHERZ" were born. Susette Andres was co- founder of Polygram recording artists PRECIOUS METAL. Susette also was in WYLD HEARTS AND BOMBSHELL (produced by Rikki Rockett from Poison). Her bands have shared the stage with GUNS AND ROSES,WARRANT,RACER X , FASTER PUSSY CAT, SHARK ISLAND, and many of the other great hair bands. Susette has been playing drums since the age of five. She has studied with some of the best drummers including Bobby Rhondinelli (Rainbow), Carmine Appice(Rod Stewart), Randy Castille (Ozzy) and Gregg Bissonette(David Lee Roth). She made it into the Guitar Center Drum Off finals. Jeff Mattern toured all over Europe with top ten recording artists Fantastics. He plays a mean guitar and his style is greatly influenced by Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, and of course Eddie Van Halen. Jeff wows audiences with his flashy,fast but accurate playing. Jeff comes up with great music to Susette's songs. Jeff and Susette also write music for TV, Movies, commercials and other artists under the name STRUM AND DRUM. They belong to the A&R group TAXI. Colleen Bromsey is the main back up vocalist, sometimes lead vocalist,percussionist and rhythm guitarist.She has a beautiful angel like voice that complements the original material beautifully! Susette heard Colleen sing out at a club one night and knew she would be the perfect addition to complete the unique sound of The Other OtherZ. Colleen was also recently chosen to sing the National Anthem at the Jet Hawk games at their stadium.Her infectious smile and great attitude truly make her an asset to this hard working band. Ryan Saul Always interested in music, Ryan learned to play bass guitar and piano at a very young age.He joined his first band while in high school. Later on, his self recorded, unsigned group raised some interest on local California radio stations. Unfortunately the band went their separate ways after a difference in musical interests and directions tore them apart. Ryan continued to write and play music and often recorded solo or with his brothers.
The OTHER OTHERZ has radio airplay in Europe as well as the US.

What Might Have Been

Written By: Susette Anders and Jeff Mattern

WHAT MIGHT HAVE BEEN
Verse:

SOMETIMES I LAY AT NIGHT
WITH YOUR PICTURE BY MYSIDE
I WONDER WHO YOU’RE WITH
AND WHAT YOU’RE DOING NOW

I CAN STILL SEE YOUR SMILE
EVEN THOUGH IT’S BEEN QUITE A WHILE
YOU HAUNT MY WAKING DREAMS
I CAN’T SEEM TO SHAKE THE THOUGHTS OF YOU

Chorus:

I WONDER WHAT IT MIGHT (MIGHT BE LIKE)
IF ONLY YOU WERE HERE TONIGHT (HERE BY MYSIDE)
SO MANY QUESTIONS STILL (FILL MY HEAD)
WOULD WE BE TOGETHER NOW (IF I NEVER LEFT)

Verse:

MAYBE I’LL NEVER KNOW
IF WHAT WE HAD COULD HAVE GROWN
INTO SOMETHING SO MUCH MORE
DO YOU EVER THINK OF ME?

IT WAS A COLD, COLD DAY WHEN I LEFT
BUT NOTHING AS COLD AS IT’S BEEN
WITHOUT YOU IN MY LIFE
NOTHING HAS MADE ME AS WARM IN SIDE (AS YOU)

TO CHORUS-----------------

SOLO

Bridge:

THE FIRE YOU STOKED IN ME
IS THERE FOR ETERNITY
YOU’RE ONE MY HEART WILL NEVER FORGET
I HAVE’NT GIVEN UP ON YOU YET

TO CHORUS

Must Be Love

Written By: Susette Andres and Jeff Mattern

MUST BE LOVE BY S.J. ANDRES J. MATTERN 10/06

WHEN THE MORNING BREAKS, OUTSIDE YOUR WINDOW
DO YOU THINK OF ME, RIGHT AWAY?
AND WHEN THE SUN BREAKS THROUGH, THAT STAR LIT NIGHT
AM I THE FIRST NAME THAT YOU SAY?

PRE CHORUS----------

IF YOU CAN’T GET ME OFF YOUR MIND (LIKE I CAN’T GET YOU BABY)
IF THE THOUGHT OF ME IS THERE ALL THE TIME (LIKE I THINK OF YOU)

-----------------CHORUS---------------------
IT MUST BE LOVE
OH BABY ARE YOU FEELING IT TOO?
IT MUST BE LOVE
BECAUSE I FEEL SO STRONG FOR YOU
IT MUST BE LOVE
IT’S THE ONLY THING THAT’S GETTING ME THROUGH
IT MUST BE LOVE
IT MUST BE LOVE

-----------------------------------

AND WHEN I’M NOT AROUND, DOES IT HURT YOU SO?
DO YOU FEEL LIKE, YOU ARE ONLY HALF?
DO YOU HOLD YOU’RE BREATH, UNTIL YOU SEE ME AGAIN?
DO YOU WONDER, HOW LONG THIS NEED WILL LAST?

-------------PRE CHORUS-----------

IF YOU CAN’T GET ME OFF YOUR MIND (LIKE I CAN’T GET YOU BABY)
IF THE THOUGHT OF ME IS THERE ALL THE TIME (LIKE I THINK OF YOU)

BECAUSE I FEEL SO STRONG FOR YOU
IT MUST BE LOVE
IT’S THE ONLY THING THAT’S GETTING ME THROUGH
IT MUST BE LOVE
I KNOW IT’S LOVE

I WOULD’NT WANTS TO MISS THIS
