Ryan Cook at Corked Wine Bar – October 20
Ryan Cook is an award-winning singer/songwriter who’s performed with Country purists like Dwight Yoakam, Roseanne Cash, & Travis Tritt. His latest project The Valley Singers combines thumb-picking guitar styles with a rotating cast of harmony singers inspired by American Jazz/Country music from the 1940’s and 50’s.
Defying the standard in cowboy culture, Ryan’s roots range as far away as Punk Rock, Death Metal & Alternative Pop. His progressive take on Americana & Folk music has been called refreshing by Exclaim, Maverick, and Now Magazine. His debut record Hot Times, sophomore album Peaks & Valleys, and Wrestling with Demons each earned Album of the Year at the Nova Scotia Music Awards. Ryan Cook has earned three Music Nova Scotia awards and fifteen ECMA/MNS nominations while performing over 800 concerts throughout North America & Asia since 2007.
