“Blues is music that belongs to everyone”. It seems obvious but this quote picked in one of Olivier Gotti’s interviews brings the intent and the spark hosting this young French singer and guitarist to light. Maybe because people are inclined towards comparing him to someone named ‘Ben Harper’. Both seated, both with the same Hawaiian guitar: the famous Weissenborn put on the knees, both using a bottleneck, a metal tube navigating between strings, both with hybrid melodies sung with fervor. It is a flattering comparison but assumed looking at how Olivier Gotti refines his blues for several years. Blues that inhabits and seduce more and more the lovers of the genre… and even further now.
Following his first album ‘Little Blues Child’, Olivier came back in 2018 with a second part ‘The Way to Win’. This new one is defended on stage with a show mixing roots, rhythmic innovations, traditional blues and modernism..
