Rachael Kilgour

"...a heartfelt slice of master crafted indie folk brimming with the battle-tested capacity to endure the worst in others." -- Billboard

Rachael Kilgour is a Minnesota-born, Boston-based songwriter and performing artist whose sincere, lyric-driven work bravely walks the line between personal and political. The 2015 grand prize winner of the esteemed international NewSong Music Performance & Songwriting Competition and 2017 winner of the Kerrville New Folk Contest, Kilgour has been featured at NYC’s Lincoln Center, The Kennedy Center in Washington D.C. and by the ASCAP Music Cafe at the Sundance Film Festival.

In the fall of 2018, Kilgour follows the success of her most recent full length album with the release of her new EP, Game Changer. The aptly titled work examines the artist’s tentative first steps into a new world, post-heartbreak. With a clear head, Kilgour touches on the complicated nature of romance and relationship, sets up a stunning defense of queer love, and reassesses her priorities as a citizen of a changing wider world.

A roots balladeer with a rare personal warmth, Alberta's Scott Cook has distilled the stories collected over a decade touring across Canada, the USA, Europe, Asia, and Australia into straight-talking, keenly observant verse. His fourth DIY release, One More Time Around, was nominated for a Canadian Folk Music Award, and its opening track "Pass It Along" won the Folk and Acoustic category in the 2013 UK Songwriting Contest, with UK magazine Maverick Country naming him "one of Canada's most inspiring and imaginative storytellers". He's currently touring in support of his sixth studio album, Further Down the Line, which earned Cook his second Canadian Folk Music Award nomination (English Songwriter of the Year), and comes packaged in a 132-page book containing a look back, in words and pictures, on his last decade of near-incessant travel. Cook is one of the hardest-working troubadours on the road today, averaging over 150 shows and a dozen festivals every year since 2007. All the hard miles notwithstanding, he still believes that songs can change your life, and your life can change the world.


"Scott Cook has distilled his travels down into songs powered by a sharp eye for imagery, a healthy dose of humanity, and that unforgettable voice, that at the same time intones the rigors of the road and the most comfortable couch you have ever slept on." -David Francey, 3x Juno-winning Canadian songwriter


"As good a modern folkie as we have these days. A voice perfect for the genre. An understanding beyond the norm." -No Depression


"He sings his heart and soul, and in doing so lets light flood into your own... Truly one of Woody Guthrie's children." -RnR Magazine

"There's nothing flash about Canada's Cook. He sings his heart and soul, and in doing so lets light flood into your own... He has a good eye for imagery, a gentle human touch, a wry sense of humour, a whole lot of integrity, a warm, rugged voice and a bunch of memorable lines... Truly one of Woody Guthrie's children." -David Burke, R2 Magazine
