With over 20 years in the music industry, respectively, OTN have performed on a variety of stages, from good old rock n’ roll bars to major festivals. They have shared these stages with some of S.A. music’s top acts (including: Prime Circle, Jesse Clegg and The Parlotones). Whether performing to 20 fans or 20 000, they are always passionate about the music they play and the experiences they share.
Everything from rock, metal and hip-hop to blues and jazz. The end result achieved is firmly grounded in rock but with hints of their individual influences.
OTN only perform original songs – NO covers. Currently they can perform anything up to a 45 minute set.
The band has been recognized by the industry insofar as winning the highly venerated 2010 Standard Bank Ovation Award. Outside The New is the first band in the history of the festival to win the award.
