Owen Cook is a songwriter based in New Orleans, Louisiana.  Growing up in the Catskill mountains of New York, he was first inspired to turn experience into song by American folk and country artists like The Carter Family, Woody Guthrie, as well as contemporary songwriters like Conor Oberst and M. Ward.   Currently, his music follows the path of songwriters such as John Prine, and Hayes Carll: weaving his life and reflections into songs with a distinctive voice but well-worn, familiar feel.  His songs reflect the varied experiences of his life and travels: love, growth, heartbreak, and hangovers. His performances feature a relaxed intensity, a sense of humor wry and sarcastic yet vulnerable and direct; lyrics loose but insightful and often cutting.  Anyone with a love of American songwriting would do well to check him out.
