Caroline Cotto, New Orleans singer/songwriter, presents Cherry Red, a manifesto for freedom, truth and rock n’ roll. In homage to her Puerto Rican heritage as well as their determination, resilience and passion.
Imagine leaving your country in search for beauty, love and truth. That’s exactly what Caroline Cotto was brave enough to do after her 22nd birthday. She toiled away in the NYC music scene for years before she left to live in Paris and explore Europe for artistic opportunities to enrich her writing and music. She dreamed by the Seine, wrote in cafes and wandered the Louvre for hours. She describes this as her own beautiful version of the Lost Generation. Caroline then lived in London playing bluesand soaking up the history of her rock heroes before moving to New Orleans.
Caroline Cotto is an artist who has thought deeply about her experiences. Her poetic lyrics and soulful voice weave the story of a woman on a journey to her salvation, a woman who has sacrificed the familiar for her dreams, a woman with incessant curiosityand desire to better herself and the world.
