Will Guthrie returns to OTO following the release of his fantastic and incomparable 'People Pleaser' record - which was one of our OTO-highlights of 2017.
“I’m in awe of this record and in awe of the guy who made it. It dropped into my inbox one day a few months back with a view to giving it a spin on this radio show I do, and I was immediately impressed. The musicianship, the sheer muscular intelligence of Will Guthrie’s technique, the raw immediacy of 40 minutes spent engrossed with nothing but a man and his drums.” – Tiny Mix Tapes on Will Guthrie's Sticks, Stones and Breaking Bones
