This sound was born in Detroit, could only be born in Detroit. As the story goes, in a lil'' Jazz club downtown after hours...a few drinks and clouds of reefer hangin'' in the air...Lady Blues was feeling the Soul from Motown, so she Hip-Hopped up on Motown''s lap, Rocked back and forth and got the Funk on. Meanwhile, Folk wondered in off the streets with crazy hair and dark shades and wrote the story down.
On that night, Sista Otis and the Wholly Rollers were conceived.

Sista Otis and the Wholly Rollers emerge from the ashes on the Urban Detroit Folk scene like a phoenix stretching it''s wings in a new body and a recording that matches the original vision of the artist. Otis whose mostly known as an acoustic player brings out the songs in electric guitar that matches the intensity of the live show and steps away from the singer song writer genre and into a full out rock & roll, soul, funk, hip hop which equals a packed house full of dancing people and a recording that is a match set to gasoline. This is a must have Detroit album because it blends the light and the darkness of all the best sounds of Detroit from Motown to electronic with good song writing sensibility in a way that is an ear orgy to the listener and is destined to be called a classic. Sista Otis who has been called "The hardest working woman in Detroit show Business" has been courted by different labels and management teams and has remained unattached at this point an time and has chosen rather to hire and create a team of professionals at Wholly Roller Records. The team goal is a national distribution deal and air play on college and public radio across the nation and then the world. If your wondering who and if there will be another great band coming outta Detroit wonder no more.

"She has enough girl power to fuel a fire and enough soul to make James Brown proud."
-Rachel May, Detroit Free Press.

"Sista Otis has got to be one of the best songwriters to hit Detroit in a very long time."
-Aimee Spencer, Real Detroit

"Worldwide Release holds the potential as the record that can break open the national scene. And it''s a great album, full of the variety and depth that Otis is known for. Each song sounds fresh and different from each other. One of the most interactive and fun acts I have seen, she clearly cares about and is unafraid of her audience."
-Lucie Bourgeau, The South End

"Her spunky -- sometimes spittingly so -- new disc is the kind of blast of self-confidence that says an artist has really arrived. Sista Otis is emerging as one of Detroit''s most distinctive voices."
- Steve Byrne, Detroit Free Press

"Sista Otis is a one-of-a-kind figure in the Detroit music scene."
-Melody Baetens, Detroit News

"Perhaps the brightest new light on the singer-songwriter scene, she calls her music "folk-hip-hop with a little rock ''n'' roll." At the Detroit Music Awards in April, Sista Otis and her Wholly Rollers band delivered the night''s most memorable performance, an energetic set that left an industry audience impressed. She''s begun branching out of Detroit, touring coffeehouses and clubs -- and even busking on sidewalks in New York''s Greenwich Village, where she often rakes in more than $40 an hour."
-Brian McCollum, Detroit Free Press

"Motown''s hippest folk sensation."
-Jason Michael, Between The Lines.

"Sista Otis is the hardest working women in Detroit Show-Business."
-Jim Dolzo, WDET.

"Legendary Country crooner Johnny Cash once wrote a song about a boy named Sue.
But around these parts, it''s a girl named Otis that''s getting all the attention. Sista Otis to be exact."
-Jason Michael, Between The Lines.
