One of the quirkiest treasures of Auckland’s music scene, Otis Mace - Guitar Ace sings his well crafted darkly comedic ballads and odes in bars and clubs worldwide. Stranded in 21st century Aoteoroa he desperately re-invents all of the hits he can remember from his own time-line in the distant future.

Pop noir, cyber punk, and brackish Americana, all rendered down to acoustic six string and vocals, Otis’ music is a fixture in both NZ and the UK, and he has opened for Billy Bragg, The Mutton Birds and The Violent Femmes amongst others. His records have been released locally by Powertool, Jayrem and Ode.

His albums and EPs are available now from OMM (Otis Mace Music).
