Pigeon john is dating your sister lyrics
Alberta, You're Breaking My Heart personifies our complex province as an ex-girlfriend who's using and destroying herself, while Dogs and Kids cheerfully acknowledges the inevitable passage of time, and for whom we make memories.
If He Showed Up Now questions how Christ would be received today (imagine him as an immigrant refugee, for example), and Walk That Lonesome Valley takes a look at the courage of Sojourner Truth, Father Daniel Berrigan and Chelsea Manning, the last one recently pardoned by President Obama.
This used to be what a large percentage of folk music was all about. This will be an album that will be eagerly awaited by old fans but will easily manage to draw in new fans too." -Kayleigh Dann, Maverick Country "As hard traveling a man as he is, Scott Cook doesn't give into the usual world weary platitudes associated with the 21st century wandering singer-songwriter.
The album is packed with good songs of the folk variety...
Cook has travelled far and wide to find the heart of an increasingly agitating world, and his genuine hope for it is palpable.
He brings dark stories to life under the guise of pleasant, and excellently played folk music, which is just as subversive as screaming it over the roar of full-throat punk rock." -Michael Dunn, Beatroute "I knew as soon as I heard the album. The album has a string of originals and co-written originals, every one an excellent example of the genre. Perhaps we should all line up behind him and sing in unison.
Cook is one of the hardest-working DIY troubadours on the road today, averaging over 160 gigs and a dozen festivals a year.
All the hard miles notwithstanding, he still believes that songs can change your life, and your life can change the world.
