Otis Clay

Otis Lee Clay was born in Waxhaw, Mississippi in 1942.  He moved to Muncie, Indiana in 1953 before settling in Chicago in 1957, where he joined a series of gospel groups. Otis’ 1972's "Trying to Live My Life Without You," became his biggest hit, rising to number 24 on the R&B chart; the song gained a new life in 1981, when a cover by Bob Seger, rose to the pop Top Ten. “I’ve Got To Find A Way”, was first released on the 1977 LP “I Can’t Take It”, written by James L. Jones.  Otis was inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame in 2013, and performed in clubs and blues festivals around the world, and released albums in 2013 and 2014. Otis’ music career was active from 1957 to 2016, and he died of a heart attack on January 8, 2016.
