ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Combine two rock legends with a hot rhythm trio from Brazil and you get OTR (On The Rocks). Led by the bluesy, soulful and distinctive voice of former Uriah Heep vocalist John Lawton and the expressive fretwork of ex Focus guitarist Jan Dumee, OTR are completed by the swinging powerful Brazilian rhythm section of Ney Conceicao on Bass, Xande Figueiredo on Drums and Marvio Ciribelli on Organ, Rhodes and Piano to create “Mamonama”.

OTR’s debut album is home to ten tracks of classic rock coupled with some jazz influences that encapsulates various moods and expressions in an accessible package for all fans of melodic and classic rock. OTR recorded \'Mamonama\' in Rio de Janeiro and the Netherlands. The mix was done in Brazil\'s foremost cd/dvd recording studio \'Mosh\' in Sao Paulo.

Whilst hear traces of the classic Uriah Heep and Focus sound can be heard in the instrumentation, OTR add their own slant to the classic rock sound with a vibe that nods to the classic timeless sounds of yester year; yet all the while striving forward into the future in their delivery and outlook. “Mamonama” is five musicians getting together from different sides of the planet, having a good time, and showcasing that vibe in their music with the band focused on reaching a new audience young and old with their new music.

Band Biography
Every now and then an idea comes along, which sounds and feels good. O.T.R (On The Rocks) is just such an idea. A new multi-national rock group which has brought vocalist John Lawton (ex Uriah Heep / Lucifers Friend) and guitarist Jan Dumee (ex-Focus), together with a hot three piece Brazilian rhythm section. In 2005 Jan recorded his solo album \'Rio on the Rocks\'. During live performances of this project he became impressed by the musicians and so he invited drummer Xande Figuerueido, keyboardist Marvio Ciribelli and bassist Ney Conceicao to become member of his new rock band, O.T.R. As a continuation of descend rock-line after leaving Focus in April 2006 Jan and John hooked up and developed OTR further. John Lawton: “In April 2006 Jan contacted me, after leaving Focus, with the plan to lock together his love for melodic rock and my blues/rock influences. I liked what I heard. With Jan making my inexpensive guitar sound like a very expensive one, I knew we were on the right track”.
