Artist Information

Two-time Grammy winning bassist Oteil Burbridge has been in the music business
touring and recording for over three decades. His first step into the national spotlight
came in 1991 when he became a founding member of the Aquarium Rescue Unit
featuring Col. Bruce Hampton, a cult classic that has stood the test of time. That led to his
membership in the classic rock group the Allman Brothers Band. Since 1997, his work
with the band has earned him two Grammy nominations for best rock instrumental, in
2003 and in 2004. Over the years, Oteil has shared the stage with rock and blues legends
such as Eric Clapton, Carlos Santana, Levon Helm, Taj Mahal, Buddy Guy, Pinetop
Perkins, Hubert Sumlin, Billy Gibbons, Chuck Leavell, Bob Weir, Phil Lesh, Johnny
Winter, Bonnie Raitt, Sheryl Crow and Trey Anastasio. In 2012, Oteil received a
Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award for his 15 year contribution to the Allman
Brothers Band as the longest running bassist in the band’s history.
While touring and recording with the Allman Brothers over the years, Oteil still found
time to collaborate with many other musicians. He formed his solo group, Oteil and the
Peacemakers in 1998. From 1998 until 2007, the group toured extensively and released
three albums. In 2001, Oteil joined Phish’s keyboardist Page McConnell and The Funky
Meters’ drummer Russell Batiste to form Vida Blue. He also founded an improv based
trio with Grateful Dead drummer Bill Kreutzmann and Max Creek guitarist Scott
Murawski called BK3 in 2008.

Oteil reunited on stage with his brother Kofi after ten years of touring separately when
Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi formed the Tedeschi Trucks Band in late 2010,
featuring the Burbridge brothers in the rhythm section. The 11-piece super group released
their first record, Revelator, in 2011 which won a Grammy in February 2012. The
Tedeschi Trucks Band played Eric Clapton’s iconic Crossroads Guitar Festival in 2011.
Oteil’s original composition “Love Has Something Else to Say” was including in the
DVD release and on their Grammy-winning debut album. The Tedeschi Trucks Band
released their second album (and first live album) in 2012, titled “Everybody’s Talkin”.

Over the years, Oteil has also recorded and shared the stage with jazz and jazz-rock
fusion legends Herbie Hancock, Roy Haynes, Randy Brecker, John Scofield, Jerry
Goodman, Bob Moses, Lenny White, Steve Smith, Bela Fleck, Jimmy Herring, Howard
Levi, Victor Wooten and Branford Marsalis.

Grateful Dead members Bob Weir, Bill Kreutzmann and Mickey Hart joined forces with John
Mayer in 2015 to form “Dead & Company” with Burbridge on bass and Jeff Chimenti on keys.
The band toured the US in the fall of 2015 and the summer of 2016 and 2017. These tours
included sold-out shows at Wrigley Field, Fenway Park, and Citi Field and a headlining spot at
Bonnaroo Music Festival. Plans for future Dead & Company shows are underway, including the
destination event “Playing in the Sand” in Riviera Maya, Mexico in February 2018.
Oteil’s fourth solo record, “Water In The Desert” was released on October 20, 2017. He
assembled an all-star group of musicians for this record, including brother Kofi on
keyboards and flute, Little John Roberts and Sean O’Rourke on drums, vocalists Alfreda
Gerald and Mark Rivers, and producer David Ryan Harris. “Oteil & Friends” are now
touring to support the record.
