Alberta troubadour Scott Cook toured almost incessantly across Canada, the US, Europe, Asia, Australia, New Zealand and elsewhere from 2007 until 2020, when the pandemic made living in a van less appealing. While averaging 150 shows and a dozen summer festivals every year, he also managed to release seven albums of straight-talking, keenly observant verse along the way.
His latest collection Tangle of Souls comes packaged in a cloth-bound, 240-page hardcover book of road stories and ruminations, equal parts introspection and insurrection. The album spent two weeks at #1 on Alberta’s province-wide community radio network CKUA. Its second single “Say Can You See” was the second most-played song of 2020 on Folk Alliance International’s folk radio charts, and won top honours for the folk category in 2020’s UK Songwriting Competition and Great American Song Contest.
This summer he’s back on the road with his trusty shipmates The Second Chances: Bramwell Park on banjo, mandolin, and harmony vocals, and Melissa Walker on upright bass and harmonies. He still believes, more than ever, that songs can change your life, and your life can change the world.
