Said about us
‘PICTURES’
“High Cotton offers fifteen high resolution musical snap-shots of life. These songs - some in bold colors, others in warm sepia tones and a few in sharp black & white – take you on a journey, evoking familiar scenes in amazing ways - The melodies and words from High Cotton create ‘Pictures’ that will stay with you long after the last track has played.”

“If you have any love for this kind of music give yourself a treat and get this record”
“It’s a sin that fantastic music like this never seems to get a chance to be aired to a wider audience”
