Carey Ott’s songwriters workshop prior to his show,
from 3:00-5:00 p.m is a popular dynamic which was initiated at his last appearance at The Sharon Wilson.
At his concert afterwards at the Gerlach/Haack outdoor theatre Ott performed with his three piece combo.


"Carey Ott's songwriting is unparalleled, he stays true in his integrity and art form. He is a true artist in all aspects :
songwriter, producer, and performer...and the dude can sport a cool hat!”
Scott Robinson - CEO/Co-founder - Dualtone Music Group - Nashville TN Dec. 2015


“Carey Ott is a genuine humanitarian I know for certain. His artistry and songs strive for
a higher consciousness that promote equality, compassion and peace for a better world.
He offers hope and inspiration in his music which goes beyond rhetoric into an expression of
unconditional love.

I have recorded music with Carey who is on an expanding journey of discovery that is always evolving.
The lesson I learn from Carey is that we must evolve as humans or else we are going backwards.
His voice carries his great melodies and imaginative lyrics to places I want to go.
Take me along for the ride my friend!"
Ray Kennedy. Artist/Producer/Recording Engineer/Studio Owner - Nashville TN Feb. 2016


Carey has recently signed a World Wide publishing agreement with Imagem - the world's largest independent music publisher.
Headquartered in London, UK and Hilversum, Netherlands along with offices in NY and LA, they have a globally inspired network that bodes well for all artists on Imagem.

Music is at the heart of everything we do. Our mission is to reward and nurture talent from seminal works to the next big thing.
Insight - Urban Milwaukee :
"….Ott says artists can help us see all this in new ways. People don’t take chances, he says, and that’s the job of an artist. “If artists can’t change the world, nobody can.”
