Phil Cook announces solo album Southland Mission – 9/11/15

by Woody on June 11, 2015


I came to appreciate Phil Cook’s music during his time with Megafaun. HearYa even had the pleasure of doing a session with the guys back in 2010. Lately Cook has been producing albums and playing on other albums. In fact, the last two night I saw him as part of Hiss Golden Messenger’s band at the Chicago Theatre.

Great Tide is the first track off of Southland Mission. Cook’s debut will be released on 9/11/15 via Thirty Tigers. Here’s some background – While retaining the singular vision of a songwriter, instrumentalist and interpreter asserting his own, Southland Mission is a highly collaborative affair. For the recording of the album, Phil gathered his best friends and players from across the rich North Carolina musical community and beyond to bring his songs to fervorous life. The compositions are Phil’s testament to truth in music, integrity in creativity and reverence for those who paved the way for these sounds to fall on our ears. Southland Mission is certain to compel you to stomp your feet, pump your fist, and sway and spin with reckless abandon.
