Otis Redding

Otis Redding

One of the most influential soul singers of the 1960s, Otis Redding exemplified to many listeners the power of Southern "deep soul" -- hoarse, gritty vocals, brassy arrangements, and an emotional way with both party tunes and aching ballads. He was also the most consistent exponent of the Stax sound, cutting his records at the Memphis label/studios that did much to update R&B into modern soul. His death at the age of 26 was tragic in part because he seemed on the verge of breaking through to a wide pop audience -- which he would indeed do posthumously with "(Sittin' On) The Dock of the Bay." ~ Richie Unterberger
