Story behind your band/artist name: Originally the band was just called, "The Project" and I knew I was going to have to change the name eventually for copyright reasons. "Carter Lou OTP" (OTP meaning Of The Project) was a nickname an old friend of mine who has passed away gave me, and when the time came to change the band name, it was the only one hat felt right.

Band Members: Carter Louthian (Carter Lou) - Singer/Guitarist, Drew Kerxton - Drums, James Britton - Guitar, Doug Imhoff - Bass

What part of the DC region is the artist tied to and how? Where is the artist's current home base if not DC : Virginia

At least 3 interesting/entertaining facts about the band related to persons/events in Washington DC area: First time playing in DC was when I was 12 at 9:30 Club when one of my first bands ever "Identity Crisis" played a battle of the bands. Someone else tuned our guitars before we went onstage haha.

I got a concussion by accidentally tripping and hitting my head against the wall of R&R Hotel while filming for my new music video projectrecently.

Recorded most of my record with DC area producer, and my best buddy Mark Williams of Sucker Punch Studios!
