“I am proud to have come to know and will be producing the second CD for one of Europe’s best upcoming artists, Maryann Cotton. Pre-production is taking place right now by file sharing, Skype and email. The album, set to be recorded in Denmark in August of 2013 will be a concept and sound that will take you back to the iconic sound and attitude of the 1970s in the tradition of Welcome To My Nightmare, and will introduce you to a world of mayhem and blood love that I believe will become a classic rock album.”
Maryann Cotton has entered into collaboration with Alice Cooper guitarist/collaborator Dick Wagner to produce his new album.
”Wagner is one of my biggest heroes,” said Cotton. “I have listened to all his stuff with Alice Cooper, LOU REED, AEROSMITH and KISS since I was a kid, so it’s such a big thing for me to work with him. He has become one of my closest friends over the last few months. We are in very close contact, and are talking every week about the whole thing. We have some big plans and ideas for the future!”
The album is to be a concept album, and in the words of Cotton, will be “the most terrifying horror story ever told”.
KING DIAMOND guitarist Andy La Rocque will make a guest appearance on the sophomore album from Maryann Cotton.
La Rocque previously played on Cotton’s debut CD, last year’s “Free Falling Angels“, on the tracks “Crazy”, “Night Train To Paris”, “Miss Misery”, “Shock Me” and “Maryann”.
Maryann states: “Andy is a genius on the guitar, and I am very proud to present him again on the upcoming album. The solos he did on the last album were brilliant, especially the one he did on ‘Maryann’; it’s definitely one of my favorites, and absolutely one of the best he ever has done, in my opinion!
” Free Falling Angels” is considered to be one of the year’s best releases on the Rock’ N Roll top 20 list, in Herald & Review !
”Free Falling Angels” charted at number 8 in the american press, between John Hiatt, Areosmith, Lita Ford and others.
From the press – HERALD & REVIEW
Here’s hoping you see some things you recognize, and might potentially find something rewarding for yourself as well.
1) John Hiatt, Mystic Pinball
2) Hellsongs, Long Live Lounge
3) Blackberry Smoke, The Whippoorwill
4) Rick Springfield, Songs for the End of the World
5) Moulettes, The Bear’s Revenge
6) Kaiser Chiefs, Start the Revolution Without Me
7) Martha Wainwright, Come Home To Mama
8) Maryann Cotton, Free Falling Angels
Combining the voice of Alice Cooper with the metal chops of some veteran players and some primo writing skills, this is kind of a retro melodic metal effort. Give a listen to the first cut, “Heaven Send For Me.”
9) A.C. Newman, Shut Down the Streets
10) Donnie Vie, Wrapped Around My Middle Finger
11) Boy & Bear, Moonfire
12) The dB’s, Falling Off the Sky
13) Graveyard Train, Hollow
14) fun., Some Nights
15) Field Music, Plumb
16) Graham Gouldman, Love and Work
17) Big Wreck, Albatross
18) Lita Ford, Living Like a Runaway
19) Little Feat, Rooster Rag
20) The Hives, Les Hives
Straight-ahead quick, fast, pounding songs with sing-along choruses and straight-forward lyrics. They’re giving us nothing huge to ponder, and that’s just the way I like it. These guys are incredible fun. Check out the ELO rip off, “Go Right Ahead.”
Honorable mention (in alphabetical order)
Aerosmith, Music From Another Dimension!

Have You been Naughty or Nice this Year ?
It has now been confirmed that Alice Cooper guitarist/collaborator Dick Wagner will appear on the next Maryann Cotton album.
Maryann who calls Wagner “one of my biggest heroes and inspirations ever,” is currently working on material for the follow-up to this year’s “Free Falling Angels”, which will feature contributions from his father Hal Patino. Maryann says, “The last album, ‘Free Falling Angels’, was a very classic rock-inspired album, and the idea is to go darker on the next one, and show a more darker side of the character. We expect to be ready in February next year, to go in the studio and start the recordings for the album.”
