Phil Cook @ Songbyrd - 6/9/2018

Phil Cook @ Songbyrd - 6/9/2018

Is there a more accurate album title this year than Phil Cook’s People Are My Drug? By now, our love for Phil Cook should come to nobody’s surprise - the Hiss Golden Messenger and Megafaun guitarist has been on our podcast twice to talk life and his love of people and connection. But take one listen to his sophomore album, and you’ll get the same notion that everyone at Cook’s sold-out Songbyrd already knew - he can create some damn uplifting music. Cook drew heavily from gospel and Mississippi Delta music as well as contributions from friends like Mountain Man (which includes Sylvan Esso’s Amelia Meath) and Richmond’s No BS! Brass Band. It’s a considerate and uplifting collection of songs for people going through struggles of their own.
