Every signed band has a story. But not every band makes history… Otherwise can claim both.
Like the Phoenix that inspired their logo, Otherwise virtually arose from nowhere. The unsigned Las Vegas band made their mark on their hometown as the city’s go-to opener for big national acts and as the resident at the Stations Casinos—they were Sin City’s best kept secret. But apparently not everything stays in Vegas. After catching the eye of young-gun LA music manager Clay Busch, who was ironically in Vegas to sign another band, Otherwise was plucked from their hometown and taken to Los Angeles to showcase for major labels.
The rest is history—literally. In addition to claiming the title as the first rock band to have a residency in Las Vegas, Otherwise is the first unsigned band to reach No. 1 on satellite radio.
Now signed to Century Media Records, Otherwise has appeared on some of the biggest bills in the country including 48 Hours Fest, Rock on the Range, Rock Allegiance and on tours with Buckcherry, Lacuna Coil, My Darkest Days and Pop Evil, to name a few. And thanks to success on terrestrial radio with their debut single “Soldiers”, they’re selling out their own headlining shows across the country. They are arguably the biggest buzzing band in rock and they’ve done it ALL in less than a year.
