Born and raised in Los Angeles, California, Anthony Vasquez who writes and records as Otis Kane found a passion for music at a very young age. His football coach at the time had ties to the music industry, which led to his first recording studio experience. From then on, Vasquez knew that he wanted to pursue a career in music.

Check out “Lay My Head Down” (below) from Otis Kane, a standout track off Kane’s EP, Growing Pains. Kane croons with sweeping dynamic reach, ricocheting off a heavy backbeat, tattered with synth color and funky bass lines. “Lay My Head Down” is a passionate soulful creation from an exciting emerging R&B artist, blending a timeless feel with a a a modern twist reminiscent of Aloe Blacc and Leon Bridges.

“This EP is a representation of growth for me; as a person, and as an artist. It starts at the end with ‘Fight For You’ which is about being in a relationship, deep in love, past the honeymoon phase, fighting for each other everyday. ‘Lost’ and ‘Without You’ represent early love, when things are perfect, and beautiful. ‘Someone Like You’ represents infatuation, the moment you meet, the early days when you know there is something special, but the future is still only an idea. Finally, ‘Lay My Head Down’ is the beginning of the journey. In this song, I’m realizing that the way I’m living, spending time with people that I shouldn’t be, isn’t sitting right and a change is essential,” says Kane.
