Scott Cook

Edmonton's own prairie balladeer Scott Cook is a tirelessly traveling songwriter with heart forever on sleeve. He brings honesty, humour, years of roads and a deep love of humanity to his songcraft and storytelling. His straight-talking tunes weave together folk, roots, blues, soul and country influences, with spacious fingerpicked arrangements on guitar, banjo and ukulele. He has been making a full-time living at music since 2007, touring extensively across Canada, the US, Europe and Asia, and independently releasing four albums, including his newest, 2013's One More Time Around. According to three-time Juno winner David Francey, "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."
