Biography

Houston, Texas, United States (2006 – present)

David Roland Cook (born December 20, 1982 in Houston, Texas, United States) is an American , who rose to fame after winning the seventh season of the reality television show American Idol. Prior to Idol he released an independent album entitled “Analog Heart” released on May 6, 2006. This was followed by his post-Idol major-label debut “David Cook” which was released on November 18, 2008 and has since been certified platinum by the RIAA, as were two singles from the album, “Light On” and “Time of My Life.” A third single, “Come Back To Me,” was certified gold.

On June 28, 2011, Cook released his second major-label studio album, entitled “This Loud Morning”. Produced by Matt Serletic, the album consists of 14 tracks penned by Cook along with co-writers David Hodges, Ryan Tedder, Kevin Griffin and Marti Frederiksen, among others. The album title comes from a line in the song “Rapid Eye Movement” – “Give me one more quiet night, before this loud morning gets it right, and does me in.”

On May 10, 2012, Cook debuted a new, independently released single, The Last Song I’ll Write for You, on American Idol. Speaking with The Hollywood Reporter, Cook denied this was written with his former record company in mind, despite the fact it was his first new song after losing his recording contract with RCA. He insisted it was a break-up song that came together very quickly.

Early Music Career: David Cook formed a band with his friend Bobby Kerr while at high school. The band was initially named Red Eye, later Axium.

    David Cook: Now that your DIY Tour is over, hopefully you will have more time to finish producing the next album. I will wait whatever it takes! My ears are begging me for new music, David. =)
