Former “Rolling Stones” senior music editor, Parke Puterbaugh extols on “Small Town Gone”…
There’s nothing superfluous on “Small Town Gone”. Every word and note is a purposeful expression of truth in regard to such close-to-the-ground subjects as relationships, hometowns, old coats and guitars, and even Uncle Sam. “Small Town Gone” laments the strip-mall sprawl that has been sadly engulfing small towns and open land from sea to shining sea. “Small Town Gone” was inspired by what Cook saw happening in his hometown, but the message is universal. “Small Town Gone” deserves to establish Chris Cook as a remarkable vocalist and guitarist who takes a fresh approach to homespun sounds. The first thing you’ll notice is the voice. Cook is a singer’s singer with a delivery that’s pure and natural, unforced but expressive, relaxed but full of inner fire. In finding his own voice, Cook has taken cues from favorite singers on the country side (George Jones, Merle Haggard, George Strait) and the blues-rock realm (Paul Rodgers, Jimmy Hall, Lowell George). You’ll hear a bit of Jackson Browne’s earnestness and Jimmy Buffett’s laid-back whimsy, too.
