Cotton Mather

Indie rock from Austin, Texas formed early 1990’s, known for literate lyrics, hook-laden melodies, and songcraft drawing deftly on a broad range of stylistic influences from British Invasion to American Roots. Discography of critically acclaimed and largely self-released indie records divided into two eras separated by a 13- year hiatus. From 1994-2001- 3 full length records, an EP, and various European singles - most notably 1998’s Kontiki. From 2016 to present day they have released 3 more full-length records (as well as an EP with Americana chanteuse Nicole Atkins), adding to what the Austin Chronicle has called songwriter Robert Harrison’s “seemingly endless list of instant classics.” A "Best of ..." (Star Apple Kingdom) and a new full length record coming in 2023.
