Made in Brooklyn

by Cooke

It’s my take on a soulful approach to rock n’ roll, one whose core has been seeped in blues and pop music; a modern version of Tom Petty with the smoothness of John Mayer and the soulful vibes of Bill Withers

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“Cooke is the project I’ve always wanted to create,” says front-man and lead guitarist Robbie Cook. “It’s my take on a soulful approach to rock n’ roll, one whose core has been seeped in blues and pop music; a modern version of Tom Petty with the smoothness of John Mayer and the soulful vibes of Bill Withers. That’s the sound I’m going for.” The result is music that is just as easily enjoyed blowing down the highway or simply lying next to someone you love. It’s music that you feel. The band, a four-piece group comprised of guitarist/vocalist Robbie Cook (the extra ‘e’ was dropped by bookkeepers on Ellis Island), bassist Carl Limbacher, drummer Jacob Berg, and female backing vocalist Angie Atkinson. Their debut EP is anticipated spring of 2015 with an east coast/mid-west tour to follow. Cook, a twenty-nine year old blues guitarist hailing from Ann Arbor, Michigan, was a late bloomer to the music world. He picked up his first guitar at the age of eighteen and hasn’t put it down since, bouncing from project to project until finally moving to NYC to pursue his dream full-time. He worked hard to define his musical style and was greatly inspired by Creedence Clearwater Revival, Dave Matthews Band, Ben Harper, and countless others before stumbling upon blues master Eric Clapton. “That,” he says, “is when my direction became clear.” A spark was ignited and Cook now strives to emulate musical giants such as Stevie Ray Vaughn, Big Bill Broonzy, and Robert Johnson. With his band’s debut EP right around the corner, writing has become the new daily routine. Cooke’s strong catalog of blues licks, pop hooks, and delicious melodies creates a sound that is modern and exciting while still paying reverence to the classics. “At the end of the day,” Cook says, “I want to write great songs. I want to bring fresh vitality to the Blues, a style that forever changed the course of my life and direction of my dreams. I’m well on my way—here’s hoping I never stop trying.”
