Said about Laura Monk & High Cotton CD PICTURES -- “..'PICTURES' finds High Cotton rewriting the country-folk rulebook; quite obviously Americana in substance but with great rockin' undercurrents, High Cotton weaves a wonderfully diverse yet wholesome blend of country magic.” http://wildysworld.blogspot.com/   

“Just like photographs, some of these songs will be burned into the hard drive of your musical memory. Tunes such as the ballad "Ghosts", "12-String" with a beautiful riff and "doo-wop" harmonic vocals, "Borrowed Time" ("A rented house, a rented car, I see my dreams through rented stars"), the touching country duet, "Long as I don't Lose You", the funny "Tattoo", the nostalgic "Black Mountain".
