Feeling a bit camera shy


Von Cotton’s sound could be characterized as progressive country with influences ranging from Waylon Jennings, Hank Williams Jr. and Credence Clear Water Revival to U2, The Beatles and Bread.

Von Cotton was formed when Bakersfield boy Brant Cotton hooked up with Miami native Tom Martin on the set of the feature film Marines (2003). Inspired by the film’s biopic of war-torn Eastern Europe, Brant and Tom wrote and recorded the song Don’t Ask while in Bulgaria. They put a copy in the hands of the director and producers, who were instantly sold on its haunting melody and lyrics and decided to put it in the film.

Von Cotton has since penned two other songs included in current films. One of them, Johnnie Walker, is currently receiving radio airplay on some county music stations.

The five-member band is led by the strong-arm vocals of Brant Cotton, backed by the rhythmic muscle of Maurillio Mina (Chicago, IL) on bass and Seattle-raised, jazz trained percussionist Jimmie Acre. JT Ross lends his rich, dark rhythmic harp sound while Los Angeles native Beau Hendrich rounds out the group with his hard country guitar licks.
