The Early Years

Otis remembers that his salad days in music and video weren’t all champagne and caviar. His career began in the early sixties on the back of a flatbed truck in a grocery store parking lot where The Swingin’ Conner Family first performed. Bond Bread initially sponsored a C&W band formed by Otis and his four siblings to tour rodeos and county fairs promoting the brand.

Being asked to play the New York World’s Fair gave the band a unique showcase, and more national exposure came when they performed on Ted Mack’s Original Amateur Hour.

They went on to appear on bills with The Beach Boys, Sonny and Cher, and The Smothers Brothers, touring all across the nation. It was during this youthful period as a performer that Otis Conner discovered his remarkable talent for songwriting. His facility with words and effortless ability to create memorable melodies resulted in an outpouring of songs and commercial music that continues to this day.

Through the years, Otis Conner has won multiple awards for his achievements in advertising, including 52 CLIO awards, the “Oscars” of the advertising industry. Otis has also won Billboard Magazine’s award for “Best Radio Special Feature of the Year,” The International Radio Festival of New York award for “Best Radio Program,” Broadcast Promotion Marketing Executives’ Awards for Television Campaigns, and numerous “Addy Governors’” awards.
