Finding the groove in the life with Otis Williams

Musician Otis Williams joins us on the podcast today! Otis Williams is a professional drummer born and raised in the city of Toronto, Canada. He started playing at the tender age of 2 and began playing every Sunday at his local church at 9. Along his musical journey as a teenager, he was given opportunities to play drums on various local gospel recordings. He became one of Toronto's premier gospel session drummers working with local recording artists such as Brian Hamilton & Divine Worship, Sharon Riley & Faith Chorale, Londa Larmond, Toronto Mass Choir, Dave Brown, Eddie Bullen, Divine Brown, Kardinal Offishall, and more. Otis was also afforded the opportunity to perform with International gospel artists such as Donnie McClurkin, Martha Munizzi, Kim Burrell, Tasha Cobbs, Travis Greene, Israel Houghton, and Elevation Worship. He has also toured with Canadian pop artist Francesco Yates as musical director and drummer for Justin Timberlake's "Man of the Woods" tour. The guys connect with Otis over the internet and chat about his unique entry into music and how he could carve out a career that led him to Elevation. Great conversation with a fantastic gentleman. Enjoy responsibly :)
