Yesterday, Oteil Burbridge took to New York City’s The Cutting Room for a special interview and performance in collaboration with Guitar World Magazine and BackStory Presents. The interview portion was conducted by New York Times best-selling author Alan Paul, a renowned music journalist best known for his work on the Allman Brothers Band.
During the interview, Paul and Burbridge discussed the legendary bassist’s tenure with the Allman Brothers as well as his most recent work with Dead & Company. The duo also chatted at length about Oteil’s recent solo side project, which has seen Oteil release his debut solo album, Water In The Desert, and perform a number of shows under the moniker Oteil Burbridge & Friends.
To close out the performance, Oteil sang a couple of tunes for the intimate crowd of less than 400. Make sure to take a listen to Oteil’s heartfelt rendition of the Grateful Dead’s “To Lay Me Down”, as it perfectly showcases the bassist’s stirring and powerful vocals.
