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

Now streaming 24/7 on Electric Lady Bird.

"The music of Cook and Rose is like a majestic antique table. Intricately carved with scrolls and spirals, its dedicated craftsmanship carries stories both ancient and new. Timeless stories that dance right into your soul. And when they've finished playing, you're left at that table to feast on the memory. Trust me, you'll be feasting a long time." –Nicole Cortichiato, Art Spark Texas

Afraid of the Crowd 

"Why don’t you leave those boots down there in the sand 
They don’t really fit you, so begin again 
And call me on your way if you need a hand 
Because Colorado will always take you in"

Lost in a House 

It’s a rich and beautiful world 
So much to see when you travel about 
But when you’re a lonely girl 
You can get lost in a house"

for the sweetest drops of dew; 
they find them in the footprints
