Tony Cook - Laidback Country

Tony Cook  - Laidback Country
Tony, who is based in Charters Towers, grew up in some small outback Queensland towns, which had a big impact on him.

Tony recalls some of the characters and personalities that would frequent his parent's hotel in Maxwelton, one day he’d love to write a book about them, but for now he's happy to put his feelings, experiences and passion for the bush into his songs.

Tony released his debut EP Laidback Tones a little over 7 years ago and his latest contribution, has been two years in the making. Tony took a break after the EP release, taking the time to get married, start a family and while he generally got busy with life, he never stopped writing songs.

The new album Laidback Country is pure country, based around Tony's life experiences in the bush, and has been described as a blend of an Australian George Strait meets John Williamson with a hint of Paul Kelly. The album was produced by Simon Johnson of Hillbilly Hut.

Over the years, Tony has been fortunate enough to share the stage with Australian music heavyweights Adam Brand, James Blundell, Travis Collins, Wendy Matthews and Russell Morris.
