Soulful songstress Danielia Cotton celebrates life with “Good Day”, the title track from her new full length album by the same name. An inspirational, feel good anthem with a throwback Motown vibe, “Good Day” can’t help but bring a smile to your face. The album was produced by Grammy winner Dave O’Donnell and features musical heavyweights Charley Drayton, Aaron Comess, Andy Hess, Marc Copely, Kareem Devlin and Jeff Cohen.
This album is called “Good Day” not because it’s the theme but because it’s what I wanted most fervently these songs to give me when I listened to them, and thus also my audience: a good day, or at least a good mood for 3, 6, 9, 50 minutes. As it says in the title song, it’s been a long, long year, so let’s dance, let’s sing.

Following in the footsteps of the singing matriarchs of her family, Cotton is creating a space for her own style and sound. Throughout most of her career Danielia’s music had a much harder rock edge, but now at 54 she’s adopted a more laid back rootsy sound. Her powerful voice, incredible range and well honed songwriting skills all come together to create a timeless record. Unsurprisingly, “Good Day” was recently picked up for an ad campaign for CommonSpirit/Dignity Health. No doubt the first of many syncs for such an inspiring song!
