John Otway is a whimsical English folksinger who often records with multi-instrumentalist Wild Willy Barrett. Otway's first singles, including Green Green Grass Of Home, Turning Point, Headbutts, plus the mad instrumental I Did It Otway, were collected on I Did It (Stiff, 1981).

John Otway & Wild Willy Barrett (Polydor, 1977) remains his best album, boasting crazy folk ditties such as Really Free. Deep & Meaningless (Polydor, 1978) has Running From The Law. Where Did I Go Right (Polydor, 1979), with Ollie Halsall on guitar and Morgan Fisher on keyboards, features The Highwayman and Makes Good Music. Way & Bar (Polydor, 1980), most of which resurfaced on Deep Thought (Polydor, 1980), is his second best album.

All Balls & No Willy (Empire, 1982) was recorded without the partner, as the title implies.

Cor Baby (Strike Back, 1990) is a career anthology.

In the 1990s Otway resurfaced first with the rock opera Cheryl (Strike Back, 1991) and then with the collection of covers Under The Covers (Otway, 1992).
