$10 Student tickets available in advance for this show, with valid student card.
Toronto’s Emma Cook is blessed with one of those glacially pure voices that cuts through the fog of our everyday tribulations. Her unassuming outer shell belies a songwriter of unwavering strength, sincerity, and determination. Back on the road after a three-year battle with Post-Concussive Syndrome, Emma Cook has distilled her hardships into a collection of stirring and deeply earnest pop balladry. She returns in support of her fourth studio album “Living Proof”.
Emma Cook knows what it means to struggle. The Toronto indie-folk singer was well on her way to making a name for herself before a falling tree branch caused a serious head injury and forced her to take a hiatus from music to focus on recovery. After a three year battle with Post-Concussive Syndrome, Emma is releasing a two-part EP this summer and fall of 2016. The first installment, Counting Sheep, showcases Emma’s storytelling ability and beautifully expressive voice. Produced by Mitch Girio (Emma-Lee’s Never Just a Dream) and supported by amazing guest musicians Gary Craig (Kathleen Edwards, Jann Arden), Christine Bougie (Justin Rutledge) and Bryden Baird (Feist), the EP leaves us wanting more, so it’s a good thing that the 2nd installment will be available in a few months. The cover of Counting Sheep, in stores July 8th, 2016, shows a single tree branch, an ode to the artists ongoing fight to recover from her injuries and the power of music to get us through the hardest of times.
