Jack Cookson is a multi-instrumentalist and singer songwriter based in Devon. His distinct style combines his deeply articulate lyrics with memorable melodic hooks and intricate, fingerstyle guitar arrangements, influenced by roots music from either side of the Atlantic. He has shared the stage with the likes of Ralph McTell, Franz Nicolay (Against Me!/The Hold Steady), and Cory Branan, and in early 2016 he was announced as one of the final four nominees for the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award.
