Free show with Danielia Cotton Tuesday May 20!

Danielia Cotton, from the NY Times, Saturday May 17

Danielia Cotton starts her second album, “Rare Child” (Cottontown/Adrenaline), by announcing, “I’m a little black girl who’ll rock your world,” and she sets out to do just that in an old-fashioned, demographics-defying way: with blaring, guitar-charged, Southern-rooted rock that links her to Lynyrd Skynyrd, the Black Crowes, Janis Joplin, Aerosmith and the rockier side of Bonnie Raitt. She’s a belter who can hold back or work her way up to a gospelly blues-rock shout, and in the songs she writes with her band’s brawny guitar rifffs, she grapples with the road, salvation, holding on and letting go: “The truth will set you free, but it always feels like it tears you apart,” she sings. She’s a throwback, but a gutsy one.
