Singer, Otilia Donaire burst onto the California music scene in 2009, and has been tantalizing Bay Area audiences ever since. Otilia's powerful and gritty vocal style (reminiscent of rock and blues icons Janis Joplin and Koko Taylor) sings with raw depth and emotion, and has the adaptability to equally transition from a power driven rock song to a sultry, blues ballad in making her a crowd favorite. She is an exceptionally dynamic and versatile performer, who is as comfortable belting out hard core, down home blues standards as she is taking on vintage rock and soul classics.
