Mike Cotton was born and raised in Houston, Texas. Growing up, his father introduced him to the world of computers and even programming. Little did his dad know that he had planted a seed.
After high school, Mike decided to follow his passion of music. He earned a BS degree in Music Business and set off to pursue his dream of working in the music industry. After several attempts to make a living in the music business, he started to re-think his career.
