“Progressive country music with a classic Southern sentiment”
Established in 2005 when lead singer Brant Cotton was asked to write a song for the feature film, Marines, Von Cotton has been filling the void of the Southern California country music scene ever since. With their unique blend of classic Southern comfort and bold contemporary edge, Von Cotton delivers a dynamic musical cocktail guaranteed to satisfy even the most finicky country fans.
Bakersfield, CA native Brant Cotton was raised on the local signature sounds of Merle Haggard and Buck Owens but educated in the outlaw musings of Willie Nelson and Waylon Jennings. Not content to limit his influence to one sound, Brant extended his education beyond the country scene and immersed himself in everything from U2 to Bread. These diverse influences are evident in Von Cotton’s music, which incorporates a variety of melodic flavors. Brant’s strong-armed vocals are backed by the rhythmic muscle of bassist Handford Pittman, jazz trained percussionist Jimmy Acre, lead guitarist John Bowder, and ivory master Rusty Tinder.
The notorious country-music-resistance of the Los Angeles area notwithstanding, Von Cotton has managed to win over an impressive number of both new and seasoned country music listeners. A regular presence at such local LA haunts as The Viper Room, BB King’s, The Mint, Borderline, and House of Blues, Von Cotton has established an enviable local fan base. In addition to Southern California, the boys routinely travel overseas to entertain the troops in Afghanistan, Iraq, Bosnia, Kosovo, Germany, and Japan.
