Hello, we're Christopher Cook and Emmy Rose, an acoustic duo from Taos, New Mexico and Austin, Texas. We play original music rooted in folk and blues.

I have stumbled, I have strayed ...  


We've been working away this summer and have completed a new song from the high desert, Bone Dry.

The Dream Up There, an original song about unexpected turns of events is getting closer and closer... 

Plus, we're excited about adding a couple of great folk and blues songs to our songbook: Buddy and Julie Miller's "A Wide River to Cross," and Blind Willie Johnson's "You Got to Treat a Stranger Right."

Work, for the night is coming ... 

We've been working on new songs about the challenges of living in the high desert. One song is a companion piece to "Flight Risk" that's going to feature a harmonium instrumental. Another song is about reimagining yourself -- about the improbability and joy in finding a new life after you'd given up.  

We're about three songs away from getting back to recording and finishing our second album. Since we're immersed in creative monastic mode, we decided not to go out on tour this summer.

Back Home in Taos 

We had a great time on our six-week tour of Texas, our home state. It was wonderful to visit old haunts and see friends during wildflower time, and we especially enjoyed playing for the first time in Galveston and Amarillo.

Now we're resting up and getting ready for our performance at the Adobe Bar in Taos May 16th. We’re working on performances in Colorado and in the Midwest this summer and getting ready to move back to Austin in the fall.

Getting ready for our Texas tour 

We're off to Texas in a couple of weeks. Can't wait to play our home state.

Here's our tour so far:

* Lubbock. The Local Bar and Grill. March 21st
* Bee Cave. Woody's Tavern. March 24th
* San Marcos. Wake the Dead Coffee House. March 26th
* San Antonio. Fralo's Pizza.. March 28th

Flight Risk  Podcast

Here's a track from our new album, City of Clay. It's a song for everyone who feels like leaving town. Writing, guitar, and vocals by Christopher, harmonium and vocals by Emmy Rose, Gracin Dorsey on mandolin, and Jeremiah Harris on string bass. Recorded at Gung Ho Studio in Eugene, Oregon on a stop during our last tour. ​It's a rough mix.
