ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“Ain’t nothin’ left of them tenant shacks, there’s kudzu on the railroad tracks,
Ain’t nobody out there breakin’ their backs, turnin’ that red dirt over…”

This verse from King Cotton’s song, “Red Hills and Cotton”, is not the type of lyric one would expect to hear from a Boise, ID band; however, King Cotton is not your average Boise, ID band. Their music, dubbed “Southern Americana”, fuses southern-fried lyrics with slinky surf-guitar, dirt-road country-blues, and indie rock n’ roll. This genre-busting jumble provides the band with plenty of room to create and evolve as its songwriting continues to mature.

Originally formed as the Billy G. Camp Band, the guys released their first CD (Don’t Stop the Carnival) in the fall of 2006. Upon the release of “Don’t Stop the Carnival”, the band became a local favorite by playing its sun-drenched country-rock at numerous venues and festivals throughout Idaho and in Oregon. Additionally, they have received airplay on numerous internet and traditional radio programs.

In early 2009, after two and a half years of playing live shows in support of “Don’t Stop the Carnival”, the band took a temporary hiatus. Founding member, Grant Camp, used the hiatus as an opportunity to write new material and revamp King Cotton’s sound. After going through several line-up changes in late 2009, the band has finally settled into a happy place with a solid group of players and renewed energy.

The band features: Jeff Logan, on drums and backing vocals; Grant Camp, on lead vocals and guitar; Ray Logan, on saxophone, keyboards, and backing vocals; Curt Wardhaugh on guitar and backing vocals; and Adam Young, on bass.

King Cotton has high hopes for the future and is hell-bent on bringing a dynamic, well-honed performance to the stage.
