Scott Cook / Bio

Alberta, Canada's prairie balladeer is a tirelessly traveling 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 fingerpicked arrangements on fingerstyle guitar and clawhammer banjo. 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 touring in support of his fourth release, One More Time Around. 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."
