Jesse Cotton Stone
Jesse Cotton Stone weaves together the stylistic threads of definitive regional traditions of Blues Music ranging from North Mississippi Hill Country Blues, Delta Blues, and Cotton Patch Soul Blues to the Urban Chicago Blues Roots of R&B, Soul, Funk, and Psychedelic Rock & Roll, bringing listeners through the doors of a Heart-Wrenching Boutique of Vintage-Toned American Blues Music with the relentless showmanship of a True Entertainer
He is a Colorado-Born, American Highway-Raised, Blues Man. A 3rd Generation “Carny”, he spent the earliest of his years on the Carnival circuit training as a traveling entertainer from his parents and grandfather, who was a balloon clown.
In 1994, at the age of 11 he began teaching himself to play blues guitar by ear.
“Though Colorado born, my blues influence was rooted on the banks of the Missouri River, where my Fathers side of our family had migrated from Texas during the Great Depression. We lived many years there throughout my upbringing and spent most summers going to blues clubs, barbecues,juke joints, blues festivals, and National Gospel Choir competitions, throughout the midwest while on the road with the carnival circuit.” .
