Joe Cotton- I have been involved in music, almost, my entire life. I can remember singing, Hard Day’s Night, in our driveway, in Cherry Hill, NJ, long before I even knew what a Beatle was. Apparently, their pop sensibility left an impression. In 2017 I was introduced to music industry attorney Richard Warren Rappaport. He became my biggest fan and was more passionate and positive about my career than anyone I had met thus far. Sadly, Richard passed away in December of that same year and I miss him every day. Just before he left, he introduced me to my future and I’m sure he’s still grinning about it.
Richard took me to meet with Record Producer, Rudy Perez (Christina Aguilera, Marc Anthony) who in turn, brought me to his incredibly talented son and Producer, Chris Price (Emitt Rhodes, Jeffrey Gaines). With Chris and the brilliant cast of characters he is surrounded by, I released the album, My Place on February 14th, 2020.
