A roots balladeer with a rare personal warmth, Edmonton’s Scott Cook has managed to distill the stories collected over nearly a decade of incessant touring across Canada, the USA, Europe, Asia, and Australia into straight-talking, keenly observant verse. Road-worn, painfully honest, and deeply human, his tunes weave together folk, roots, blues, soul and country with spacious arrangements on fingerstyle guitar and clawhammer banjo.

His fourth release One More Time Around was nominated for a Canadian Folk Music Award, and 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”. He’s currently on another around-the-world tour in support of his fifth CD Go Long, continuing to log over 160 shows and a dozen music festivals every year. All the hard miles notwithstanding, he still believes that songs can change your life, and your life can change the world.
