Emmanuel Armando Coto was born and raised in Hollywood, CA. A self-taught artist & musician, COTO first learned to play the bass, then swiftly graduated to drums and then ultimately the guitar.

Jamming and recording everything by himself in a cozy Rampart apartment, the "COTOWN" sound was born in late 2014. Months spent in the desert recording with mystic Gonjasufi honed his skills even further, meanwhile back in L.A., a group of ace musicians began daily sojourns to COTOWN, contributing new instrumentation, technology & magic.

The seven visceral songs on COTO's debut EP [HNR61] were all recorded at COTOWN during this fruitful period in 2015. These debut recordings shine the first golden rays on this journeyman's archetypal quest.

All production duties and instruments were deftly handled by COTO, with homies Alex Gray (Sun Araw, D/P/I) and Francis Pagsuguiron (Dirty Bandits) each drumming on a track, plus co-conspirator Gato Mercado (GatoLoco) & maniac Trenttruce add guitar & vocals (respectively) to "Mayan Rock". Even the elusive Gonjasufi appears, co-writing the spectral closer "I Used To See Angels".

COTO's self-titled debut EP will be released worldwide on Tuesday, June 21st, 2016 via HIT+RUN. COTO's recognizable hand-drawn artwork naturally graces the album cover. The EP will be available through a strict limited-edition 100qty run of cassette tapes, as well as downloads via iTunes & Bandcamp.
