Scott Cook

Scott Cook (photo)Scott Cook, Alberta, Canada's prairie balladeer is a tirelessly traveling DIY songwriter with heart forever on sleeve. Road-worn, painfully honest, and deeply human, his straight-talking tunes weave together folk, roots, blues, soul and country with spacious fingerstyle guitar and clawhammer banjo arrangements. 

One of the finest Folk albums of the last 30 years... This needs to be heard by as many people as possible. The lyrics are heart-felt. The arrangements are beautifully sparse, and they highlight Scott's voice. This is pure, accessible folk. Settle in, and listen to the beauty of this project. You won't be sorry!
-- Dan Joseph, CKWR radio

Cook has been making a full-time living at music since 2007, touring extensively across Canada, the US, Europe, Asia and Australia, and is currently on tour in support of his fourth release, One More Time Around, which Canada's premier roots music magazine Penguin Eggs calls "as much a manifesto as a musical work," teeming with "wry observations and hopeful life lessons." Its opening track "Pass It Along" won the Folk and Acoustic category in the 2013 UK Songwriting Contest, with UK magazine Maverick Country naming him "one of Canada's most inspiring and imaginative storytellers". Fellow Canadian songwriter and three-time Juno winner David Francey sums it up: "Scott Cook has distilled his travels down into songs powered by a sharp eye for imagery, a healthy dose of humanity, and that unforgettable voice, that at the same time intones the rigors of the road and the most comfortable couch you have ever slept on."
