Danielia Cotton

Early indication is that Danielia Cotton is a fiery blues-rock artist with a chip on her shoulder. She doesn't like comparisons, although as of the May 2006 release of her debut disc she was earning them with such titans as Tina Turner, Janis Joplin, and the Rolling Stones. And she doesn't mind letting the world know that the circumstances of her youth were less than ideal: Cotton, according to a mounting pile of press materials, grew up fatherless in rural Hopewell, NJ, as one of only seven black children at the local high school -- thus the title of her CD, Small White Town.

Inspiration for a career in music came from her mother, a little-known jazz singer, and two aunts. The three women sang as a trio at church, igniting a passion for big belting in Cotton. Outside of church, though, her musical tastes leaned in an unlikely direction. AC/DC, Judas Priest, Led Zeppelin, and Todd Rundgren -- not hip-hop or R&B -- formed the soundtrack to Cotton's discomfited youth, and shreds of the hard rock bands' fury and of Rundgren's literate sensitivity shade her songs.

Early adulthood found Cotton and her electric guitar abandoning Hopewell for Manhattan. There she played the rock club circuit, eventually befriending Kevin Salem of the band Chocolate Genius. Salem produced Small White Town, a promising disc full of hurt and hope that, as she finds her footing within the indie scene, should beget a string of powerful others. ~ Tammy La Gorce, Rovi

She has released 2 more albumns that are each outstanding. Pandora, expand the discography, PLEASE
Awesome!!
What a great artist. I saw her twice for free and also at a small venue in Doylestown PA. She was also gracious enough to sign my CD and take a photo with me. Danielia rocks!!!!!!!
I completely agree: both of her albums are fantastic : both this one and Rare Child. And I agree with 2lucky (BTW: there is also the group Three5Human -a black rock duo from ATL led by Trina Meade). (One little note: informative bio but the tone of the 1st paragraph is interesting: "...a chip on her shoulder?" But back on point, I too recommend Danielia.
Finally it has happened and I thought I was going to have to do it myself, a black female rocker has stepped forward, not caring about what people think or say but loving the music and letting it be known that there are women who rock and they are black, and not just Jada Pinket Smith!!!
