L. V. Cook News FOR 2024!

Hello World,

After a 14-year hiatus, I am excited to announce the release of my third album of original songs.  The eleven songs of “The Feet Will Follow" (TFWF) showcase eleven characters as they come to hopeful terms with a personal challenge. The album is available for streaming on Bandcamp (https://lvcook.bandcamp.com).  I have posted lyrics there for each song as well.

I would like to thank my gifted and inspiring guest musicians for their brilliant contributions to TFWF.  Mark Johnson co-wrote “November Lullaby” and played organ and piano on that track.  He also played organ and electric guitar embellishments on “Hole in the Morning”.  Lavon Smith, my long-time collaborator and former bandmate from Athens, Georgia, played the “electric” electric guitar solos and sang background vocals for “Creatures of Comfort” and “The Chains Inside”.  Check out his album “Lavon Smith” on Bandcamp!

In the near future, TFWF will be distributed will be distributed to other streaming services via Distrokid.  I also plan to have TFWF duplicated as CDRs, and that will be available sometime in Summer 2024.  

Moving forward, I intend for Bandcamp to serve as my primary home for music posts.  I plan to post my first two albums (“Granite in the Mirror” and “Roads, Water and Orange”) on Bandcamp in the near future.

Stay tuned for future announcements!

Roads Water and Orange

There are places that scatter in dust and faint echoes of recollection.  There are other places that loom large, visiting in a rain of dreams, where lighthouse flickers lead to new destinations and gifts.  These are the paths that inhabit my new concept album "Roads, Water and Orange".

"Roads, Water and Orange" explores the journeys of life (the roads), their tribulations (the water), and the realization of love along the way (the orange).  This album offers an unusual diversity of styles and sounds, from acoustic rock to bossa nova, songs that are both different and together, strung like diamonds along a live wire of ups, downs, and in-betweens.  "Roads, Water and Orange" is a journey of souls searching for their Orangeland.  I am sure we will meet again somewhere along the way...
