Editorial Reviews

Amy began her career at Las Hotel Café, and while living in Los Angeles, had a good deal of success landing her songs on television and in movies. She moved to Texas in 2005, where she found her home among a group of Austin musicians, including the legendary rocker and troubadour, Alejandro Escovedo. Amy began to tour extensively with his band, and listening to her perform nightly left Alejandro sufficiently impressed enough to produce her 2010 record, Let the Light In (his first and only producing credit to date).

After touring Let the Light In, Amy began to write the songs on Summer Skin in 2011. Her finest songwriting to date is likely the result of the education she received ont eh road for a couple of years, playing rock clubs and theatres with Escovedo, the Hearless Bastards, and other artists.

Summer Skin was produced by Criag Street, whose long list of credits includes Norah Jones, Cassandra Wilson, Joe Henry & k.d. Lang, and was recorded in LA with an all-star band, featuring David Garza (guitar), Me Shell N Degeocelle (bass), Chris Bruce (guitar) and Jonathan Wilson (drums). Robert Plant sings harmony with Cook on the beautiful It s Gonna Rain, and joins Patty Griffin on the moody Airplane Driver. Ben Kweller co-wrote and sings back up on the pop rocker Getting To You. This record represents a quantum leap for Amy her evolution as a songwriter, a musicia and an artist.

Beautiful songs, beautiful voice.
Bree Gurin
There's a little something for everyone on this one (pop, rock, love songs and slow burns).

This album has been in near-constant rotation in the month-plus I've had it.

This Austin resident's new album is a stunner and beautifully showcases her lovely voice and exceptional songwriting. There's a little something for everyone on this one (pop, rock, love songs and slow burns). Special guests include Robert Plant, Ben Kweller, and Patty Griffin, though the standout out is Amy herself. Talent that can hold its own in such accomplished company is hard to deny. Can't recommend this one enough.

Summer Skin is a fantastic, beautiful album. The sound is sunny and warm, with excellent production by Craig Street, who assembled an all-star cast of players: David Garza, Chris Bruce, Me'Shell N'Degeocello and Jonathan Wilson.

This album has been in near-constant rotation in the month-plus I've had it. It is one of those rare albums that satisfies many moods. Each track is a gem, and each is melodically and lyrically distinct. I love every song, especially "Getting to You," "Hello, Bunny" and "Levee."

I wasn't very familiar with Amy Cook's work before I bought this, but I am now a big fan. I can't wait to hear these gems live!

Summer Skin songs sung by Amy Cook was true to the commentary I heard on WFUV recently. She's an up and coming
star with a sultry voice. I like to support those on the rise.

This is an awesome album from an awesome singer, I love every song in this album, but I suppose Airplane Driver is my favorite. I would recommend this to all those Indie music lovers that are sick and tired of the same old worn out sounds from the pop music charts.

A great and overlooked album from Amy. She's a great songwriter and had a superb group of musicians playing on this well-crafted CD.
