Originally from Jay, Florida, Amanda Cook acquired a love of bluegrass from her father, who played banjo throughout her childhood. Forming the bluegrass group High Cotton with her father in 2007 gave her a taste of performing, fueling a fire to continue as a professional. In 2013, Cook stepped out on her own to self-release her first solo album, One Stop Along the Road. The project made it to the top 150 Roots Music Bluegrass Album Charts for 2014 and 2015 (#61 for 2015 #56 for 2014). The album also brought significant regional attention and furthered the desire to grow her brand, resulting in the addition of a full touring band. In 2017, Cook signed with Mountain Fever Records and recorded her label debut Deep Water. Cook was excited for her second album project, especially that she and bandmate Carolyne VanLierop co-wrote the title track. Released in April 2019, Point of No Return is a true example of her artistic growth. Cook has created quite a loyal fan base through her palpable delivery of soul-wrenching songs. And her light-hearted, down-to-earth style helps create an undeniably strong connection with her audience.
