“Sultan of Syringe by Otto's Jacket has a reggae feel that reminds me of Sublime.
This song talks about so many heart
wrenching things disguised in a feel good
melody. Nice”

"About You"

“Otto's Jacket makes it sultry in About
You. Juxtaposition of egos, revenge, hurt,
and sorrow are a few words I can use to
how I interpret it. Then the final realization
that the future is open despite the present
yearning for something that is unavailable.
Cool. The guitar riff in the middles adds to
the realism of feelings.. Whew Otto's
Jacket - Great song”

Otto’s Jacket is a four piece rock & roll band reigning from Saratoga Springs, New York. Many people have tried to describe their music as a mix between The Band, The Rolling Stones and Wilco only to decide that they have a sound that is truely unique.

Formed by Marc Hartman and Mike Blair in the winter of 2006, Otto’s Jacket released their debut feature length album "About You" in the summer of 2007. On a twenty date tour from Manhattan to Saranac Lake, NY promoting "About You" the band won over fans and critics alike. "The shows are raw and emotional, that's why people are drawn to them. Otto's Jacket makes it sultry with "About You". Juxtaposition of egos, revenge, hurt and sorrow. Then the final realization that the future is open despite the present yearning for something that is unavailable."
-Mark Holman, Songwriter/Music Writer

Along with sharing the lead vocal duties Hartman thrashes out distorted guitar chords and choppy rhythm patterns that compliment the simplistic complexity that Otto's Jacket is known for. Blair's vocals range from deep baritones to McCartney-esque falsettos as his bass guitar drives the rest of the band through a roller coaster of emotions. With Jamie Munyon on keyboard/guitar and Joshua Corrigan supplying the back beat Otto's Jacket is sure to wow everytime.

Otto's Jacket live shows include over 40 original songs as well as 20 covers from some of the best bands of the past and present. Songs by David Bowie, Arctic Monkeys, The Beatles, The Band, The Kaiser Chiefs, Kings Of Leon, Pink Floyd and The Rolling Stones to name a few have all been covered by Otto's Jacket.

Otto's Jacket has spent the last year redefining their sound and preparing for the release of their new EP, Everything's My Fault , and a brand new single Vampires! (Getting Old). With music available on iTunes, Napster, Rhapsody, etc. The Jacket (as fans affectionately call the band) has experienced some national and international success. With fresh material and frequent local radio airplay, Otto’s Jacket is ready take the music scene by storm.
