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

At a carnival in Nacogdoches 
Black clouds and thunder on the way 
Lighting struck the Ferris wheel 
We rolled all the way to Galveston Bay

Oh, Ma’amoiselle  
I read about women like you in books  
Oh, Ma’amoiselle  
I read about women like you in books  
What you want with me  
And my dusty panhandle look ...

Big Orange Moon 

When I was a child, I went down to the creek,
Down where the black water stands,
Down where the frogs learn to speak,

And the big trees lower their hands...
