Emma Cook + Jessi Junkin @Charslanding
Tue, Apr 24th, 7-9pm, Concert  Emma Cook  Living Proof Canadian Tour - Torontos Indie-Pop singer

With Island local Jessi Junkin as an opening https://soundcloud.com/jessijunkin

Toronto based indie singer-songwriter Emma Cook has released her fourth full-length album, Living Proof.  The record is the long awaited for follow up to her 2016 release, Same Old Song and chronicles not only Cooks personal recovery following a severe head injury but also her artistic transition from folk songstress to indie pop songwriter.  

Living Proof opens with the stark keyboards of How Beautiful You Are. Its a slightly bouncy pop track that is driven by its minimalism and the warmth of Cooks seemingly classical inspired vocals that add a layer of warmth to the electronic keyboard.  Cook stated that she began writing this album on the piano, which explains the dramatic shift from her previous work which is more guitar based.  While there is guitar used throughout the record, it is sparse and spontaneous, which makes the listener notice its presence.  

Over the course of ten songs, Emma Cook demonstrates her ability to excel as a songwriter whose emphasis on simplicity only makes her work seem that much more brilliant.  I Will Stay, the lead single, is no different, and while it slowly grows to include more elements as the song rolls forward, it is an exercise in minimalism, which on paper sounds like an easy feat, but is actually one of the more challenging aspects a songwriter can flourish in.  The title track and I Dont Want To Wait Til Its Over both further this while also showcase Cooks creative transition into the indie-pop style; and while the music may be simple, her voice demonstrates years and years of training to gain such a range and level of control that allows for her to carry such a level of expression in his voice.  Your Last Ride stands out as my favourite track on the record.  It feels much darker and even sparser than the rest of the songs and its minimal use of guitar adds a haunting element to the verse.

Emma Cook shines on her return.  Living Proof is a massive personal and creative triumph that showcases not only Cooks incredible vocals but also her unique and sophisticated voice as a songwriter.  Despite the shift in tone from her previous work, Living Proof is a confident step forward that Cooks fan base will thoroughly enjoy.
