LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Otis Junior is a new artist who's already making waves on the Louisville music scene thanks to a record deal with a German label.

But this soul singer has a lot more to offer, which will be showcased at the release of his solo EP "Ships."

Expect a laid back vibe on this record, he told Kyle Meredith on The Setlist.

Otis Junior has also completed an EP with Louisville producer and rapper, Dr. Dundiff. “One Moment to Another,” with lyrics written entirely by Otis Junior, was quickly picked up by Jakarta Records.

The limited edition vinyl of that record sold out in a matter of hours.

Hear a preview of a track from the album in the video above.

You can catch Otis Junior’s unique sound at his release show for “Ships” at Nelligan Hall (2010 Portland Ave.) on Friday, April 1 at 8 p.m. Tickets are $5.

Make sure to keep an eye on this artist on the rise. Follow Otis Junior on Facebook, and check out his Youtube page for creative covers and new videos.

The Setlist is a collaboration between WFPK Music Director Kyle Meredith and WAVE 3 News Producer Laurel Mallory. Find more local music by watching WAVE 3 News every Saturday morning or Monday nights at 7:30 p.m.
