Cotton has spent her entire career fighting for independence, space to create her own sound and an audience that would journey with her. Cotton released Small White Town in 2005 and then released the critically acclaimed Rare Child in 2008 as a true indie artist. followed by the Live Child EP (2009) in relatively quick succession. In 2012 came Gun in Your Hand (another collaborative effort with Kevin Salem) followed by Woodstock (2014), The Real Book (2014), A Prayer (2016), and The Mystery of Me (2017). Cotton is no stranger to the classic rock 'n roll story... she's lived some life; seen and been through some serious shit, and this powerful body of work is what she did with it.
