About The ShowCity Winery Boston presents David Cook live in concert on Tuesday, July 19th at 8:00 PM.
David Cook (and yes, the same David Cook who launched into stardom following his American Idol Season Seven win – breaking several Billboard chart records when 14 of his songs debuted on the Hot Digital Songs chart and 11 of his songs debuted on the Hot 100) certainly knows his way around a good song. His first album, Analog Heart, came out pre-Idol, and his last album, Digital Vein, nicely book-ended that chapter of Cook's career, a chapter during which he sold more than 2 million albums (including his platinum-certified eponymous album) and, collectively, more than 5 million tracks (including two platinum-certified singles) worldwide.
David continues to find success, not only for himself, but also as a writer for other artists and touring throughout the world. 2018 brought an exciting new EP from Cook – Chromance. "I was a 'rock' guy, but the further away I've gotten from that, the more I've opened up and found inspiration in the peripherals. I wouldn't have had the courage earlier in my career, but now I have the confidence to go after the sound I want." A fan of both Massive Attack and Nine Inch Nails, Cook always admired how they pushed the envelope and brought pop elements into rock music. "I used them as a bedrock for Chromance and how I wanted the record to feel."
If putting out his 2018 EP wasn't enough to keep Cook busy, that same year he headed to the Great White Way for his Broadway debut as Charlie Price in KINKY BOOTS. "I've had conversations about finding creative outlets outside of being a musician, but the timing was never right." While Cook was excited about his first starring role, he was also aware the message behind KINKY BOOTS was timely and relevant.
