"If the purpose of art is to make the familiar strange, or to make the familiar new again, both Russell and Scotty have been doing that for a long time." - Richard Winham, WUTC -


Still working on that hot first release.



Russell Cook is a visual artist and musician.  Trained as a painter, his work includes collage, sculpture, songwriting, and performance.  He has shared the stage with a range of musical artists, including Del McCoury, the Avett Brothers, Gillian Welch, John Prine, Trampled By Turtles, the Carolina Chocolate Drops, and Old Crow Medicine Show.  He has recorded six albums with his wife Cameron as the Little Country Giants, including recording with Mike Compton and Stranger Malone (Guinness world record holder for longest recording career), and was part of the original ensemble cast for a Stephen King/John Mellencamp musical.  His award-winning paintings and sculptures have been shown at galleries and festivals across the United States.  

Currently, he is exploring new sounds as Russell Cook and the Sweet Teeth, a terrific two-guitar and drums juke-joint style trio with over 100 years of collective experience playing and singing for the people. Featuring the sparkling guitar work of Scotty Knight and ace drummer Jeremy Clark, the Sweet Teeth play new songs, traditional songs, and draw from the extensive catalog of music written for the Little Country Giants.  They try to push the music to see where it will go, using songs as the structure but staying open to improvisation and playing in the moment.  Russell Cook & the Sweet Teeth use sharp-edged songwriting to open up a vein of electrified Americana and country blues.
