“Bayou Sun” is a high stepping boogie with a neo-retro feel. Cotto’s fetching vocal has a sassily sultry quality that draws you in like a carnival barker.
Caroline Cotto is a beautiful world traveler who has rambled around the globe soaking up inspiration from the arts in New York City, Paris, London, and New Orleans to help craft her word poetry into memorable song.
“For the past 10 years, I have been on an endless journey of self and soul. I have crossed countries and lived in strange places as a young woman and artist. But, on my road map, the direction always pointed towards the Bayou Sun. My desire burned brightly on every highway while the wind whispered blues notes. I rode the path to paradise till finally, I arrived in the arms of the Delta.” ~ Caroline Cotto
