The first thing you’ll notice is that voice. Chris Cook is a singer’s singer with a delivery that’s pure and natural, unforced but expressive, relaxed but full of inner fire. Averaging 200 dates a year, the hard-working Cook continues to tour regionally and internationally showcasing strong vocals, seasoned musicianship, a prolific writing ability and a performance of a true musical leader and entertainer.
His recordings top the Americana Music Association charts year after year and his touring schedule stays full. Michaels combination of music and storytelling are based in experience, sometimes downright funny, sometimes just plain scary, maybe even with a message worth taking away, but always mesmerizing and entertaining.
Singer, Songwriter, Musician, Artist – Gigi Dover
Incorporating the sounds and vibes of world instruments:
Sitar, Ukelele, Djimbe & Glockenspiel – their sound is a fresh, palatable blend of gypsy, jazzy, funky, southern-soul & world music.
Their live shows move effortlessly from high-energy to low-swampy grooves and back again, creating a rich sonic experience being coined as
“Gypsy Soul meets Russian Carnival”
1999’s Hard Time County and 2001’s A Good Way to Die featured musical contributions (and some co-production) from noted Nashville artist Duane Jarvis. The latter album also featured non-traditional accents, such as the sitar on “Possibility” (played by multi-instrumentalist Eric Lovell).
