Bio

The MUSIC could no more be boxed in than the man himself.
Growing up in Belmont, a small town on the outskirts of Charlotte, NC,
Chris Cook was surrounded by music from day one. As a singer-songwriter and multi-dimensional musician, he knows what he likes and what suits his needs. While comfortable playing country or rock, Chris also has a fondness for a classic R&B groove, the catchy beat of Pop, or the "from-the-gut soulfulness" of the Blues.

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. In finding his own voice, Cook has taken cues from favorite singers on the country side (George Jones, Merle Haggard) to the blues-rock realm (Paul Rodgers, Jimmy Hall, Lowell George). You’ll also hear a bit of Jackson Browne’s earnestness and Jimmy Buffett's laid-back whimsy in there too.

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.
