We were selected out of hundreds of submissions as semi-finalists in the Coffee Music Project, a music competition for emerging artists that also raises funds to bring clean water to growing communities worldwide. Our team select 36 musicians from the applications to go through to the next round, the live shows.
We’ll perform at Piano’s in New York city for a chance to advance to the finals in New York City, and onto Los Angeles.

"Everything comes and everything goes. We take what is offered us in the longest days of and the warmest nights- all of our moving and fighting and weeding and dancing - and we decide what of our pain and joy we'll carry into the fall- and what we'll leave to the field."
Mississippi Cotten will be celebrating the vinyl release of their first studio record, "Sparkling Lotus Eyes" at Jalopy Theatre on August 31st. Come and enjoy the band's upbeat and bittersweet songs that have been blended together with a pleasant mix of acoustic and electric instruments. The six piece band, led by Kyle Tigges(vocals/banjo), pulls from the deep roots of American folk music and fearlessly reaches their sound high into the skies of the current musical climate.
