Human Ottoman is powered by electric cello, vibraphone, drum-set and bass.

Co-fronted by Susan Lucia (drums) and Grayson Fiske (vibraphone) Human Ottoman has created a repertoire of raucous, rhythmically dynamic music which combines their enthusiasm for music of all cultures with modern genre-mashing sensibilities, characterized most of all by their unique instrumentation. From brain-crashing cello solos and atomic vibraphone drops to drum solos that scholars are still struggling to understand, Human Ottoman is bringing polyrhythmic rock to the masses.

Their first album, aptly named "Power Baby", was independently released in 2014 and received an Independent Music Award in the "Instrumental" category. Their second full-length record, Farang, was released in 2015. Since then, they have been actively ear-pillaging throughout the west coast.

"A touch of absurdity is inherent in this local band's design" Vortex Magazine

"The live shows are loud, irreverent, and bursting with life." Willamette Weekly

"When the show ended, they had given their audience something new, organic and honest." Psychedelic baby magazine

Featured by Oregon's 1859 Magazine as one of the top emerging Oregon bands, read the story here

"Human Ottoman's unusual aesthetic is, at least in part, a pushback against the ultra-coolness of most music scenes. For Human Ottoman, dropping the artifice of cool is essential to forming a more intimate connection." Willamette Week

"The percussion sounds like a choir of cavemen mauling the monolith, basslines that thrum in the chest but cease to exist, the graceful strings that can shudder and be torn asunder at the drop of sanity."
