Joe Russo's Almost Dead Pre-Show: Tyrone Cotton

Tyrone Cotton

Tyrone Cotton’s earliest musical revelation was listening to the raspy, inspirational voice of his grandfather, the Reverend Cleveland Roosevelt Williams, at his childhood home in Louisville, KY. At a young age, Cotton began playing guitar along to the sounds of popular rock and blues artists. Overtime, he was influenced by Jerry Garcia, Jimi Hendrix, Buddy Guy, and Mississippi John Hurt, who intrigued Tyrone with his “ finger pickin’ and soft, wispy voice.”

Inspired by this wide variety of artists, Cotton developed a style of writing that blended soul, folk, blues, jazz, and rock n roll. He has become a staple in the Louisville music scene over the past 30 years, being well recognized for his stirring voice and lyrics.

Cotton has toured throughout the United States and Japan, with plans to continue performing in the US this year. He is currently working on a new album with producer Josh Kaufman. Kaufman is best known for his work with The National, Bob Weir, and Josh Ritter.
