Biography

I grew up in a beautiful part of Minnesota, right along the Mississippi. I started taking piano lessons with my Dad at the age of 5, and starting taking guitar lessons at 7. After 2 weeks on the guitar, I got my very first paying gig. I was hooked !! All through grade school and High School I performed in choirs and various singing groups. By the time I was 18, I was a working musician. I did weddings, club gigs, private events. You name it, I’d go play there.
During my coIlege years I competed in and won the NATS festival, a Opera Vocal Competition. I moved to California and finished my Music degree as a composer. People always ask me, what kind of music do you do? And it’s a valid question. I Call MY music Cosmic Rock. Why the Cosmic part? Because I write alot about spirit and things like meditation, spirit guides; kind of unusual song themes. Growing up I listened to radio. So I was influenced by alot of different styles and types of music. I really like it all.
Starting in 1998, I began touring around California, doing festivals, radio shows to promote my gigs and other private events.
Right now in 2007, I am primarily writing and recording songs for TV and film projects,with a few occasional gigs thrown in for fun.
I'm currently receiving airplay on over 100 radio stations worldwide and my song From My Room was recently named song of the week on a radio station in Spain. Thanks for taking the time to listen. Mary Ott
