Phil Cook - "Great Tide"

Phil Cook appears to be one of the few producers that can actually become a great artist himself. A Wisconsin native, he's spent the last ten years in the south (currently calling Durham, NC home) and has been embraced by that music scene. He's played on, produced, or written for The Blind Boys of Alabama, Hiss Golden Messenger, Amy Ray, and more.

Now, it's his turn in the spotlight. "Great Tide" is the first song off his upcoming album, Southland Mission. It's the perfect blend of mainstream and alt-country, perfect for fans of Jason Isbell and Justin Townes Earle. The song takes maybe a minute to get going, but once it does it's a laid back down home country song with an energetic, sing-a-long chorus. There's also just a hint of psychedelia and jam band in there, but don't let that deter you.

Southland Mission is due out September 11 on Thirty Tigers and Middle West. For now, you can listen to "Great Tide" below, and check out Phil Cook's website. Also, you can find his current tour dates below "Great Tide."
