Cots is the solo project of Canadian composer, singer, and guitarist Steph Yates. Blending elements of bossa nova, folk, jazz, and classical against a modern art backdrop, Cots’s subtly unconventional compositions and poetics permeate her debut record Disturbing Body, produced by Sandro Perri. During the pandemic, Yates teamed up with producer Olivier Fairfield to create the otherworldly and off-kilter follow-up EP Moonlit Building.
