Shuggie Otis

Biography

Guitarist/singer/songwriter/producer/multi-instrumentalist Shuggie Otis may not be a household name, but his “Strawberry Letter 23″ is in the record collections of millions of households. The Brothers Johnson's cover of “Strawberry Letter 23″ has sold over a million copies, peaking at number one R&B and number five pop on Billboard's charts in summer 1977. It was on their LP Right on Time, which went platinum, selling over a million copies, holding the number one R&B spot for three weeks and making it to number 13 pop in spring 1977. Otis wrote “Strawberry Letter 23″ for his girlfriend, who used strawberry scented paper for her letters to him. Another Otis favorite, “Inspiration Information,” received substantial airplay in Chicago and other markets, charting #56 R&B in early 1975.
