Blending multi-genre influences, Cotter Hill has created a unique sound. Hill credits everyone from The Eagles to George Strait for helping him become the artist he is today. Early in life Hill pursued other paths but also came back to his one true love, music.
Recently, we had the opportunity to chat with Hill about his musical journey, style, and so much more.
Who would say are your biggest musical influences?
For sure the Eagles, their songwriting and melodies are a huge influence in my songwriting. I also love George Strait and so many others.
When did you know music was the path you wanted to take with your life?
I Realized it’s what I wanted to do when I could stop thinking about it when I tried doing other things but always came back around to music.
Once you knew, What was your first step towards making it a reality?
I just knew I had to take the chance. I had to make the move to Nashville and hustle as hard as I could. I moved here not knowing anyone and today I feel it was the best thing I’ve ever done.
How would you describe your musical style?
I would say I’m country with a little bit of rock and a pop mixed in.
What’s the story behind your new single, “Good For You”?
This song was brought to me by a friend and an amazing songwriter Arlis Albritton.
He wrote this song with another amazing writer Hunter Phelps. When he played it for me I immediately loved it and the story it tells along with the catchy melody.
What’s next for you?
Next up I’m going to continue to write and record new music and start getting back out on the road to share it all with everyone.
