Eli was born at the foot of the mountains of Virginia, and with no TV growing up he spent Saturday nights around the radio with local shows and Prairie Home Companion. He picked up the guitar at age 13 after watching his older brother play and began to teach himself. Within two years he was playing solo acoustic guitar for gospel revivals and electric blues in a power trio in local “juke joints.”
A student of several musical tastes, Cook took what he heard on the record player and radio melding it into his own which makes him stand out. At 18 with a bone-shaking growl and bonafide blues guitar chops, he was received by fans and critics as a torch bearer for a slew of historical players, from Son House to Leadbelly to today’s modern players, like Chris Smither and Rory Block.
As the country sounds of Appalachia crept in Eli didn’t flinch: “It didn’t seem unnatural. It’s what was around me, and I just tried to pick up on everything and everybody, including Doc Watson and Chet Atkins. In fact, hearing Chet fingerpick made me realize I didn’t need a band.”
No slavish dilettante or rusty, dusty blues purist, Cook has internalized his influences, including the rock of Soundgarden and Rage Against The Machine, stirring them into a musical cauldron of authentic, timeless music emanating from deep in his soul.
Eli's debut, Moonshine Mojo, in 2004 contained mostly choice classic blues covers. In 2007 both the scalding, blues-rocking Electricholyfirewater and the all-original acoustic Miss Blues’es Child made their appearance. Following were Static in the Blood (2009), an outside-the-box studio production mixing R&B and rock, Ace, Jack & King (2011), a grunge blues blast, and the all-original, explosive trio recording Primitive Son (2014) with star-studded cameos. He has toured to national acclaim, holding his own in the company of blues royalty B.B. King, Johnny Winter, Shemekia Copeland and Gary Clark, Jr. In 2015 he was voted #3 on the prestigious UK Blues Matters Writer’s Poll for Favorite International Blues Solo Artist.

After a zealous pursuit of the world of musical theatre, Kathryn took a job at the Birchmere music hall and, inspired by what she heard, began her journey into songwriting. “I had been living through the stories of great, exciting characters and wanted live and write my own." She still loves acting and hopes to incorporate theatrical elements while also delving into the subconscious and frame arresting aspects of modern cultural crises into her songwriting.
You can find her home recordings online at soundcloud.com/krowren and her EP is expected Fall 2018.
