JJ Otero is an accomplished artist from New Mexico. He calls his rich blend of rock, soul, and blues “Native-Soul-Rock.” In 2013, “Protected (Beauty All Around),” a song that is sung entirely in Navajo, was named best Rock Song at the Native American Music Awards. In 2017, JJ Otero received three New Mexico Music Awards nominations: Best Rock CD for the album “019910,” Best World Beat song for “Me & The 99,” and Best Native song for “Tó éí ííná át’é.”
Producer and sound engineer Bill Palmer says, “J. J.’s a rare bird. He has a really distinct, original sound to him. He’s the poet laureate of the Native rock scene.”
JJ will be in residence at Home & Away Gallery in Kennebunkport June 5-7, exhibiting his amazing jewelry work. Tickets are $10 per person, $5 for Museum Members. Sponsored by Home & Away Gallery.
