“emotionally honest… rock” – American Songwriter
David Cook launched into stardom following his American Idol Season Seven win. He broke several Billboard chart records when fourteen of his songs debuted on the Hot Digital Songs chart, and eleven of his songs debuted on the Hot 100. His first album, 2006’s Analog Heart, came out pre-Idol, and his last album, 2015’s Digital Vein, nicely book-ended that chapter of Cook’s career. He sold more than 2 million albums (including his platinum-certified eponymous album) and, collectively, more than 5 million tracks (including two platinum-certified singles) worldwide.
David continues to find success, not only for himself but also as a writer for other artists and touring throughout the world. 2018 brought an exciting new EP from Cook – Chromance. A fan of both Massive Attack and Nine Inch Nails, Cook always admired how they pushed the envelope and brought pop elements into rock music.
If putting out his 2018 EP wasn’t enough to keep Cook busy, that same year, he headed to the Great White Way for his Broadway debut as Charlie Price in Kinky Boots. “I’ve had conversations about finding creative outlets outside of being a musician, but the timing was never right.” While Cook was excited about his first starring role, he was also aware the message behind Kinky Boots was timely and relevant.
Cook is well aware of and grateful for the breaks American Idol has brought his way and for the opportunities he continues to have. He has no plans to slow it down. “I love creative endeavors. I like starting with nothing and then finishing with something that didn’t exist before. That’s my favorite thing about creating new music. I love being able to put something artistic out in the world for people to enjoy.”
