JOHN ALEX COOK - BIO
Americana/Folk/Country... With an English Accent.
Take an English inability to express emotions, an obtuse sense of humor and upside down view of the world, mix them through classic British folk music, modern American country music, add spice from southern and roots rock and Britpop... And you might have some idea of how John Cook writes and performs.
With songs on subjects as diverse as cars, couches and one night stands, and covers ranging from Joan Baez to Bon Jovi to Jason Isbell, John sings a range of material as wide as his influences and combines it with a stage banter that doesn't take life, himself or his songs too seriously!
John is available to book as a solo performer and can perform a wide range of originals and cover songs. John is based in Frederick Maryland and has a local draw, but is adept at engaging with diverse audiences and getting them to stay for dessert or another drink.
