From the mailbag, I wanna point some of you to Scott Cook, a country-roots artist. Lots of my readers wonâ€™t cotton to this easyâ€”itâ€™s simple backporch music that isnâ€™t typically featured here. Some of you will find it corny, or old fashioned, or somesuch. But Iâ€™m betting thereâ€™s a few of you who will appreciate it.
Formerly the frontman for â€œThe Anglers,â€ a Canadian/South African roots/reggae band, Scott Cook was born in raised in West Virginia and spent much of his early life traveling the world (or at least Canada and Taiwan). His experiences add a wordly flavor to his down-home songs, which may explain why I found them to be more interesting than the typical one-guitar-one-voice record.
Give it a try!
