Scott Cook:
“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, and its second single “Say Can You See” was the second most-played song of 2020 on Folk Alliance International’s folk radio charts, also winning 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.”
Naomi Shore:
“Naomi Shore has laid bare her rich heart with solo album “Piece by Piece”. She’s branching out, but leaning in, and the result is a ripe sound born of deeper self inquiry. It is refreshing, powerful, unapologetic, but funny in the way that very honest things should be.With raw heart and sharp wit, she delivers performances that are at once contemplative and clever; vulnerable songwriting is buoyed by surging vocals as smooth and full as deep water. Folded into all this are flecks of desert country, blues and classical piano.For this storyteller and love of sad songs, crafting music has become more than her trade. It is a way to process life, to send a searching had out though the mists of a melody and connect with the world.”
