Shane Otis is a guitarist and music producer from the SF Bay Area, Northern California. A lifelong musician, Shane is most at home creating music in his studio. Diving headlong into advanced production techniques and music theory, he’s always got some new ideas gets inspired by lots of different music. Alex Lifeson, Jeff Beck, and Tony Iommi would probably be his favorite guitarists of all time.
Much of the music is instrumental but tells a story and takes the listener on a journey.
Shane assembles some of these works to play live from time to time using trusty Ableton Live as an audio and MIDI foundation.
Shane’s music embodies styles ranging from rock, metal, electronic, funk, jazz, and blues. Usually instrumental compositions, Shane weaves sonic tapestries with lush textures, complex rhythms and spindly guitars.
