Mixing classic country music with modern satire, Ryan Cook has forged a sound between contemporary folk and dyed-in-the wool country. With nuances of pop and western swing, Ryan's songbook reminiscences of the early hillbilly and folk pioneers but stays very much in the current landscape. On stage Ryan has toured as a solo performer opening for Country purists like Dwight Yoakam, Rosanne Cash, & Travis Tritt. His acoustic live show combines thumb-picking guitar styles, original folk & country ballads and vintage music from the 1940’s and 1950’s.
Ryan has received over 20 nominations in Atlantic Canada, 3 Album of the Year awards in Nova Scotia, and written, produced and published music in Nashville, TN. He has performed musical tribute shows to Hank Williams Sr. as well as Merle Travis, Merle Haggard, and Johnny Cash.
