Otis ClayCognac Blues Passions | Jarnac, France | 2015
Born in Waxhaw, a Mississippi hamlet, Otis Clay left for the North and Chicago, recorded in Memphis and Nashville, and conquered the biggest stages in the world with his voice. A voice drowning in sorrow, flying in joy for which The Only Way is Up and which Can Take You to Heaven Tonight. A voice which, Truth Is, is full of soul. Sweet melody of the heart. In 2016, the Gates swung open for him. Today we have to Try to live our lives without him.
