The band Otep was signed after only four shows, without a demo, strictly on the power of their live performance.

To date, the band has released four full lengths, one EP and toured in support of all four releases.

Otep Shamaya has also published two books of poetry, spoken at the Democratic National Convention in 2008, and has been recognized as a painter. She openly supports Carbon Rally, PETA and the WSPA. In addition to lending her support to numerous groups, Shamaya has started the social networks "All Shapes and Sizes" and "Girls Out Now". On December 21, 2008, Shamaya created a blog entitled "I'm Not a Monster".
