is touring in support of her band’s most recent full-length release, Generation
, which hit stores in April 2016 via Napalm Records (order here). With OTEP
Shamaya’s multifaceted vocal approach – ranging from gut wrenching roars to
soft seductive poetry and beautiful singing showcasing her evolution as a
writer and story teller – Generation Doom erupts with thunderous,
punishing grooves that harmoniously detonate into dark industrial fury with
magma flows of hard rock melodies that seamlessly shapeshift into a mysterious
musical beast.  
Upon release, Generation Doom debuted at #10 on the
Billboard Independent Chart, #7 on the Rock Chart, #4 on the Hard Rock Chart
and #109 on the Top 200 Albums Chart. Watch the music video for the powerful
single “Zero” here.
About OTEP:
is an explosion of inspiration and motivation, empowered by their dedication to
the arts, being a voice for the voiceless and fighting injustice.
Originally discovered by Jack and Sharon Osbourne in Los Angeles, OTEP
was offered to play Ozzfest as an unsigned band and was the first female
fronted band to play the touring festival. She signed with legendary label
Capitol Records, without a demo, after only five live shows, and strictly on
the power of her live performance. OTEP has gone on to record six studio
albums, an EP and a live album.
Nominated by GLAAD for Outstanding Artist Award alongside Lady Gaga and
Adam Lambert, she won MTV’s prestigious Best Video for “Music With A
Message” award. The singer, writer and activist spoke at the Democratic
National Convention in 2008 on behalf of Rock The Vote. A celebrated spoken
word artist, OTEP has appeared on HBO’s Def Poetry twice,
recorded an unreleased poetry album and authored three books of poetry. She has
also authored a book of short stories titled Movies In My Head and
produced and directed an audiobook of one of the stories titled Pinebox Jake.
Utilizing her incredibly dynamic vocal range, OTEP also succeeds as a
voiceover artist, appearing in many projects such as the award-winning video
game The Last Of Us and in feature films including THE HOBBIT: The
Battle Of The Five Armies
. Her live performances alongside her very
talented band have been described as a “complete mutiny of the
senses” – combining spoken word with a cathartic range of emotional
screams and soft melodies over an equally bedlamite alchemy of masterful music.
Armed with the lethality of master artists, they continue to inspire and crush
live shows around the world.
