From Rapper to Soul Singer! Terry D. Cotton became 100% Cotton!
Born in Newburgh New York, Terry's family relocated to Baton Rouge Louisiana when he was 12, where he now resides.
Terry wrote his first song when he was 4 years of age. He and his brother used to win the dance contest every Friday after school, shocking everyone each performance for they never lost a competition! In 2006, Terry's life changed. His much loved mentor, Mr. Lee Daniels died suddenly. Terry recalls how his mentor was always trying to get him to sing ... It was the shock of his sudden death which became the turnaround point in Terry's music career.
Today, he recalls how he sacrificed everything and started putting his ALL into his music. Out of that experience 100% Cotton was born!
He credits his musical influences to James Brown, Marvin Gaye, The Jackson Five, The Sylvers, and Chee Chee & Peppy.
100% Cotton has performed in various venues and states, including Houston, TX, Baton Rouge, LA, Newburgh, NY and others.
He has a passion for composing his original music and has a knack for producing. To him it is very important that his music touches the heart and soul of his listening audience. 100% Cotton's debut album 'Keepin Southern Soul Alive' was released in 2009. Each song wears his Heart & Soul. The single 'You Deserve Better has been his personal transformation journey, which makes you FEEL the vibe.
