Otto “Sweet Dreams Are Made of This”

For many musicians the current lockdown has had a hugely detrimental impact on their ability to perform live and build their fan bases. However, for one local musician it’s lead to a huge success story. Otto (aka Christian Punter) has managed to beat off competition from around the world for the chance to work with music legend Dave Stewart. We first became aware of Christian when he was part of the Forte Project and at the end of last year Otto was one of our acts to watch in 2020. We knew he had a bright future but didn’t dream that in the space of a few short months he would be working with someone of Dave Stewart’s stature. We wanted to find out more about the competition and what winning the prize means to him.
