“Like Son House, Skip James, and the other pre-war country blues masters who inspired him, Cook received his grounding in gospel music—he was even invited to play in backwoods black churches—performing at local revivals around Charlottesville, Virginia, where his deeply emotional solo-acoustic playing made him stand out. Unlike those early bluesmen, however, Cook was never conflicted about performing sacred versus profane music.” – Guitar Player (2007)
“By the time he was 18, he’d developed a bone-chilling growl and was labeled as a torchbearer for the likes of blues legends Son House and Lead Belly.” – Durango Telegraph
