Eddie Cotton: Here I Am Review

Eddie Cotton Jr. helped music lovers start 2014 on a high note by launching his latest release, Here I Come, on January 21. The album features Myron Bennett on bass, Samuel Scott Jr. on drums and fantastic guest appearances by harmonica players Grady Champion, Carlos Russell and organist Sam Brady.

Cotton embraces the standard blues format while adding his own flavor to the classic sound. Songs such as “Here I Come,” “A Woman’s Love,” and “Berry So Black” have this timeless feel.

On other tracks, the Mississippi singer, guitarist, and songwriter clearly draws inspiration from the greats. “Get Your Own” is a funky, up-tempo, feel good tune with a hint of James Brown. There is a reminiscence of ’60s and ’70s soul tied into other songs on the album, including “My Boo” and “No Love Back Guarantee.”

Here I Come is a solid album and perfect for any listener looking to hear something newly classic.
