David Cook was born on 20 December 1982. He is a rock singer and songwriter of American descent, being born in Houston, Texas, USA.
David Cook, although he has always been interested in music from a young age, found his fame and musical career in an unorthodox manner: through winning the seventh season of the famous reality/talent contest show American Idol. Whilst he had been virtually unknown in the music business prior to the show, his victory on screen earned him a legion of fans in the millions and catapulted the singer into stardom.
Prior to the show, Cook had been part of two rock bands: Axium and Midwest Kings. Neither managed to achieve mainstream success but the former released three studio albums and the latter released one EP that Cook was part of.
Cook came to our attention on screen when he auditioned on American Idol, singing Bon Jovi’s ‘Livin’ on a Prayer’. His first audition blew the judges away and his subsequent performances led him all the way to the final where he managed to beat favourite David Archuleta. His wining songs were classics ‘I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For’, ‘Dream Big’ and ‘The World I Know’.
Post-victory, Cook’s chart success was enormous. His first single ‘The Time of my Life’ debuted at number three on the top 100. He broke records the week following his victory, for having a staggering 11 songs debut on the Hot 100 that week. The record had been previously set by Miley Cyrus who had six songs debut all at once on the charts. It was the most songs an artist had had on the charts since The Beatles in 1964. Cook soon released an eponymous first solo album and a subsequent album entitled ‘This Loud Morning’. He has won a number of awards for his music including a Teen Choice Award and a Nashville Music Award.
This was my 6x seeing David in concert, but first time meeting him! He was very nice and autographed my CD and let me get a picture of us with my cell phone. I was a little disappointed that I didn't have more time to speak with him, and was moved along quickly because of the amount of people in line. David also apologized to the crowd that he had a bad headache and could have been more personable. (OK - Dave, I will let you pass this time, LOL)
Now onto the important stuff - the music! Andrew Ripp opened for David. He was the perfect man for the job! He worked the crowd and has an amazing voice! I will be buying some of his music now that I heard of this gem.
As for Mr. Cook - what can I say, the man is just amazing! He sang songs from all his CDs - "Come Back to Me"' , "Declaration", "Paper Heart", "Broken Windows"', "Criminals", "Kiss and Tell", "Laying Me Low", "Better Than Me"', "Wicked Games", etc. The rawest moment is the show was when David sang "Permanent"; This song makes reference to his late brother Adam who died from Brain Cancer. David sang with such raw emotion, and said how difficult it was to sing that song, and I know that was difficult! Kudos to you for singing it beautifully!
David is a true showman, the man engages with his audience and truly does everything he can to make the evening enjoyable! He is very appreciative of all his fans and charity followers.
David has one of the best voices in pop/rock, is an amazing singwritter, and is truly underrated! I highly encourage someone to see his shows! I just wish him continued success and hope more people discover this amazing singer!
David Cook won a little show called American Idol back in 2008, so based on that alone, you know you can anticipate an phenomenal show from a genuinely great live musician. During his sets, you can expect to find Cook and his badass bandmates performing an array of tracks from his two studio albums, "David Cook" and "This Loud Morning", his independently released songs, and a dash of totally ace 80s jams (a decade which just happens to be his covers specialty).
His music encompasses a wide range of influences from 90s grunge-alternative to modern day rock-pop, covers themes of love, loss, and life, and are instrumentally-driven by guitar and piano. Suffice to say, Cook makes sure to offer something for everyone.
From 2008-2011, I've seen Cook perform in gigantic arenas and intimate theatres/clubs, and no matter where the stage is, he is always on and ready to deliver a rockin' show. Not only is Cook a talented singer/songwriter, he is also witty, gracious, and kind-hearted.
Every year, Cook participates in the Race for Hope marathon in Washington, DC in honour of his late brother, who lost his fight against brain cancer in 2009. He is a steadfast supporter for charity initiatives related to brain cancer research.
For all of those reasons and more, David Cook is one artist you must not miss out on whenever he's in town!
There is a debate regarding singer/songwriters who found their fame on the back of a reality TV show platform as you question their credibilities to then head out onto the live circuit in already elevated stage spaces. American Idol victor David Cook luckily has knowledge and experience of the small stages and the struggle to proceed, the television programme simply shed light upon his great talents.
The rock singer has a likeable confidence as he addresses the crowds and remains humble with guitar in hand and a number of accompanying. There are no huge production values which are often affiliated with other reality winners, instead you simply have a very authentic musician with a strong back catalogue and solid live performance style. The audience remains engaged throughout as David keeps them very much at the centre of the operation before closing on his synonymous re-imagination of 'Billie Jean' by Michael Jackson and his own 'Come Back to Me'.
Voted for him when he was on American Idol! He continues to be the best and supersedes my expectations! I have all his music. I really enjoy his concerts as he communicates with his audience's during his performances! He is an "A" list performer. I listen to his lyrics and the way he sings each word with compassion! He is an asset to the music industry! I am proud to be a fan of his now and always! Bottom line he sings the best!
That concert was worth every penny. Admittedly, I'm not the biggest fan of his last album, but I loved Analog Heart and his self titled album, as well as being a huge fan of him on Idol. However, his voice is so good live, like he could sing the phonebook and I'd pay to watch it. The show was sick (even though the audience was mostly middle aged chicks). Go see him. It's worth it.
I was lucky enough to see him 6 times on the #DigitalVeinTour. Every concert is different because the set list is made up of a variety of songs each night. David is funny with the banter and keeping the audience in check.. It really is a great experience each time. My favorite songs are Home Movies,Heartbeat and Laying Me Low. I also like Wait For Me.
He was fantastic. He is my favorite contestant that Amercian Idol ever produced. His voice and his talent are unbelievable!!. His new material is really very good. I would go see him again when he comes back to the area. His opener Andrew Ripp was very talented, funny and down to earth. I enjoyed him as well
