Cotton Jones Background Info

The music of Cotton Jones speaks of transition: the passage from one form, state of mind, style or place to another. Songs become doorways to the past, or windows that open on some unnamed future, where innocence can still exist and perfection is thrown to the wind. (via Cotton Jones Facebook Page)

MarsBands Review

Cotton Jones is Folk music with a splash of 70’s style Classic Rock with perhaps a tad of Jazz at times to keep things interesting.  A very awesome and unique sounding band, they are nearly constantly releasing something new.

If I had to describe this band, I would say they are a mix of No Island‘s Classic Rock sound and Right Away, Great Captain‘s soft, Folksy sound.  And if you have heard either of those two bands, that makes for a pretty awesome mix of music.

Check out their album Paranoid Cocoon (my favorite) below.
