COTTON – Not Much Left
‘Not Much Left’ is the second single released by the talented composer and producer COTTON. Only a month after his first track ‘Come Back’, the singer drops another record showing a new facet of his neo-soul repertoire. Influenced by musicians such as Jordan Rakei, Jacob Banks, and Maverick Sabre, this new song mixes soulful piano chords, laid-back drums, and bass arrangements with powerful melodies and lyrics. Moved by one of his friend’s experience with homelessness, COTTON’s words poignantly recount his difficult daily realities while attempting to give some hope back. The performer will also soon be releasing his EP “AM4”, which includes his first two singles.
At the crossroads between neo-soul and hip hop, London-based music artist and producer Antoine Cotton, aka COTTON, is blending guitar, keys, and vocals in energetic tones. After graduating in music writing, he is now also cutting his teeth on music production, working with other artists to develop their sound, while still refining his own. Growing up in a music environment in Switzerland, COTTON picked up the trumpet at the young age of eight before switching to the guitar and the piano as a teenager. After stepping into London’s music scene, the 26-year-old singer quickly built himself a repertoire inspired by jazz, funk, blues, and strong soulful backgrounds. Last year, he released two songs – “Roamer” and “Who You Wanna Be” – while also performing at top London venues including; Brixton’s Hootananny, Notting Hill Arts Club, The Finsbury, and Ronnie Scott’s Upstairs as well as playing live on Vibe 106.7 and at Shindignation festival.
