Willie Oteri – Austin, TX

Willie Oteri is an anomaly in the music world having survived tragedy and financial hardship that forced him to quit music as a profession in the early part of his career. After nearly ten years away from performing and most of this time not even owning an instrument Oteri came back to music, first part time then full. Older, wiser and as eager and excited as anyone to again have a life of music.
