Hello friends!

I’m Tim Hus. I was born in the little Kooteney Lake town of Nelson BC, which is a railway town on the Canadian Pacific’s secondary mainline in Southern British Columbia. Since then I’ve been all over the place, mainly here and there, doin’ this an’ that. I saw a lot of highways, walked a lot of miles, shook a lot of hands, heard a lot of stories, laughed at a lot of jokes, ate a lot of good food, drank a lot of beer, saw a lot of pretty girls, stepped in a lot of cowpies, hung my hat on a lot of walls, felt a lot of sunshine, froze in a few snowstorms, heard a lot of songs, and made a lot of friends along the way.

A roots balladeer with a rare personal warmth, Edmonton’s Scott Cook has distilled the stories collected over a decade of near-incessant touring across Canada, the USA, Europe, Asia, and Australia into straight-talking, keenly observant verse. His fourth 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”.
