Perhaps best known as the lead singer of Grammy-winning rock band Living Colour, the multi-talented Corey Glover has also released albums as a solo artist and acted in movies and television. Glover met guitarist Vernon Reid in the early 80s and went on to form Living Colour, along with drummer Will Calhoun and bassist Muzz Skillings. Unfortunately, just as the group was creating a buzz in the NYC underground, Glover had to briefly leave the group when he landed a part in Oliver Stones classic Vietnam movie, Platoon. Shortly after he returned, Living Colour was signed to the Epic label and scored a big hit with its debut recording, 1989s Vivid, which featured the smash single and music video Cult of Personality.
As with her multi-ethnic background, Danielia Cottons music is a compelling mix of elements: soul, folk, blues, jazz, and a whole lot of emotionally powerful, no-nonsense rock n roll. Pure self-determination and raw talent have landed her in a place where sheâ€™s been chosen to play festivals like Lilith and Sundance and to open for some of the biggest names in rock, R&B, and blues, including B.B. King, Derek Trucks, Bon Jovi, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and Robert Cray.
