about

Justin is the classic poet warrior. Vulnerability and strength coexist, and you can feel it in his songs. From piano prodigy to shredding guitar across the globe with the likes of Queens Of The Stone Age, Cotta established himself as a musical tour de force as the frontman of Memento (Columbia) and the guitarist and keyboardist for VAST. (Elektra) JSC is a rare artist, with a knack for writing anthems and lyrics that resonate with us all. Anthemic melodies aside, his music has the power to transcend genre, and at it's best, is hauntingly delicate and soulful. Glimpses of alt rock, folk, punk & pop, but with the cohesive storytelling prowess of a genuine singer-songwriter. Cotta continues to give his gift of hope during these strange times. He’s now dropped arguably his finest song to date... "LittleThings".

LITTLE THINGS
words & music written by Justin Stewart Cotta

You see through the pantomime when I say I'm fine,
You see all the colors when I draw outside the lines,
You say people's names for me when I do forget sometimes,
When I wander, you stay by my side

It's the light in your eyes
It's the little things
It's how you stop space and time
It's the little things

Those handwritten notes you leave for me to find,
Those times you say nothing, and you just let me cry,
You point out the moon to me when darkness fills the sky,
You whisper, things will be fine

It's how you laugh when you cry
It's the little things
You see the faces in the sky
It's the little things

You know we don't live forever
Stop thinking. Just do.
There's still time to start over
I will be here for you...
Waiting so patiently, wandering aimlessly
So good to see you, farewell for now...

Tell me that we'll be alright
Tell me you'll stay through the night

It's the little things, It's the little things
It's how we danced in the rain, It's the little things
It's how you held me through the pain, It's the little things
It's the light in your eyes, It's the little things
It's how you stop space and time, It's the little things
