Courtney Cotter King has been playing her mix of original music and classic covers at dozens of top venues in the Phoenix area for years and has come to dominate the singer/songwriter scene. Fervor Records CEO David Hilker was quoted in a Phoenix New Times Article, "Musically, she is a triple threat: an excellent pianist, exceptional vocalist, and extraordinary songwriter. She commands a deep understanding of how to emote via all three."
Courtney has been asked to perform in different states for events such as weddings, wineries, house concerts, street events, restaurants, shows and festivals. She plays a variety of upbeat captivating songs as well as pleasant back ground songs.
We hired Courtney to play at our wedding because we wanted something different than a DJ. From the moment we heard her demo, we knew she would be perfect for our style. Our wedding was small (around 50 people) and we wanted it to have an intimate vibe--she was absolutely perfect for this! She flawlessly covered every single genre of music we asked her to play, and brought along a male musician to give it the sound we desired. She sang everything from Etta James to Brad Paisley, and it was absolutely perfect. I can't say enough good things about Courtney, and would recommend her to anyone in a heartbeat!
We have booked Courtney for both our Chandler Art Walk and our Chandler Farmers Market. She interacts with guests and brings a positive vibe to the setting. Her voice is absolutely lovely and we always get great feedback from those who attend our events including other vendors at the event! We have never had any issues with her professionalism and communication. She is a delight to work with and as I mentioned before, has a beautiful voice!
I have hired Courtney several times for studio, and have never regretted it for an instance. She's prompt, courteous, easy to talk to and work with, and ads so much beyond simple melody into every song. Her pure voice is both refreshing and haunting. Highly recommend.
Courtney has played several gigs for different events in downtown Mesa and she is always such a pleasure to work with. She is prompt and pleasant, but she is also unbelievably talented. Her music fills the space and adds the perfect ambiance to any experience. Both her covers and originals are beautiful and her voice is perfectly unique and lovely. I would highly recommend Courtney for any event, big or small.
Courtney Cotter King is a great multi faceted performer.

Performer who keeps your attention and is fun and great to listen to. You won't be disappointed in her. Take the time to listen to her many genres of music! They will make you smile!
My fiancé and I got engaged in march and in April we had a black tie formal rooftop engagement party. It was magical and we hired Courtney and she played soft romantic music throughout the night. She is professional on time and has the voice of an angel. If you are looking for someone to impress your guests and play the most beautiful soothing blissful melodies she is your girl. She had different styles and is polite and as sweet they come. Thank you Courtney for making my evening so magical!!
Even though I'm a relative of Courtney Cotter King, I could see why strangers would want to hire her. She has a great sound. She performed a charity event at my house and I thought it was the best song selection, perfomance and she was very friendly with all the guests. She set a great mood that carried throughout the rest of the night.
Courtney played at my wedding and did a PERFECT job. I thought I had such an eclectic song taste but she worked her playlist to fit our style and even learned "our song" to make our day extra special. Her voice is so smooth and beautiful, she's great on her piano and shows just enough personality to be a fascinating entertainer, but not take away from everything else going on in the room. I received so much positive feedback from our guests (some of which booked her afterwards), she was so professional and easy to work with. You can tell she really cares about making sure you're happy. I would have her play my events again in a heartbeat. She really set the tone and made my wedding day so special.
Courtney played and sang at my wedding and not only was it FABULOUS but it made our first dance an even more special moment! She is perfect for your event, whatever it might be!!
