About Kota the Friend

With his first official release off his untitled project, on November 10, 2015, KOTA exclusively premiered his first single, “CUSTOMS”. Born in Clinton Hills, Brooklyn, KOTA uses this single to introduce people to his nostalgic-yet-modern dark reality of life. Sampling “Twisted Nerve” from the main sound track of the1969 British Horror film, composed by Bernard Herrmann, also used in Kill Bill the movie, KOTA repurposes the disquieting whistling– painting a ominous lyrical euphoria of struggle, hope and addiction.

With influences of Jay-z, Nas, Kid Cudi, Bob Dylan, The Beatles and others, KOTA has managed to revitalize the NY scene all from his brownstone steps. His love of photography, culture and art has helped him capture what he defines as, “ a mirror into his fantasy and truth ”. Working on projects with Blu, Asher Roth and others, his work has been featured online.

A jack of all trades; photographer, producer and artist he proves he is truly the artist to watch for 2016. His love for the rap, neo-soul and punk genres drives his Palm Tree Liquor EP released in mid 2016

Stay tuned for more releases from KOTA!
