Tempest II Tour
May 25, 2021
Just over a year ago, I was getting ready to begin the Tempest 25 Tour. In honor of the 25th anniversary of “Tempest”, my first CD. I didn’t know it at the time, but there was a larger and very real storm in our path.
Of course, at this point, the whole world knows what happened next. There was no tour, there were no concerts. And we’ve all lived through a storm like nothing we’ve seen before in our lives.
For those of you who had tickets from a year ago, thank you for your patience and understanding, as we have been working hard to find the right time to start again. We wanted to be sure that when we did return, everyone would be safe.
And finally, today, after much hard work, I am proud to be launching (or is it relaunching?) the TEMPEST II TOUR, almost 2 years later.
Whether you have tickets from a year ago, or are looking for new show announcements, please refer to my website, as it will have the most up to date links and information.
When it’s time for us to come together in celebration. I hope you’ll join me in kicking social distancing to the curb, bring your dance shoes, and let the rumba party begin!
Hope to see you soon!!
Happy Holidays from Jesse Cook
December 24, 2020
This being a crazy year, I wanted to do something special. After the year we’ve all had, we need all the joy and love we can get.
Over the years your support has meant so much to me. And this year, not being able to tour and play music live with you all was a great disappointment. So, since I can’t come to you, I thought I’d record this little holiday ditty, and send it in my place. Hope you like it.
May you have a great year filled with love, joy, and adventure! And hopefully, I’ll see you when this is over….
Oh, and another thing….Sayonara 2020!!SHARE
Listen now: “Wednesday Night at Etric’s” feat. Matt Sellick
July 30, 2020
The brand new single from Jesse Cook, “Wednesday Night at Etric’s” is out now!
“Late one night in 1997, I recorded a song of mine at my friend Etric’s hip downtown loft. There was no recording studio, we just set up a few mics and started making music.
23 years later, my friend Matt Sellick convinced me to revive the song. He must have been about 5 years old when it came out. Today I think Matt is one of Canada’s finest flamenco guitarists. I am so proud of the musician he has become.” – Jesse Cook
“I remember learning this tune the summer I turned sixteen, right when I started taking guitar really seriously. It’s a thrill to have this come full circle.”. – Matt Sellick
Watch the video premiere below on July 31st at 12pm ET!

Listen now: The new 2020 Recording of “Tempest 25”
June 25, 2020
“25 years ago, I released this little song called ‘Tempest’ on a record bearing the same name,” Jesse reflects, . “Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine what would follow. At the time, I had no idea it would change my life”
“This new recording of Tempest 25 started as a simple idea,” he explains. “I’d use this pandemic time to record a new version of ‘Tempest’ and see if it would sound different.
“Have I changed as a musician, or as a producer?
“Oddly enough, the process seemed familiar,” he continues. “25 years ago, the original was created with me alone at my house, playing all the instruments because I couldn’t afford to hire musicians. This time, it was me alone because of social distancing.”
“When you write these things, at first, they’re like your kids,” he continues, breaking it down. “You think of them as yours.
“But then they grow up and start to live a life all their own. Other people record them, use them in their own work, or get married to them, live, celebrate, even heal to them.
I owe a huge debt to this little song,” Jesse reflects on Tempest. “It opened the world to me and allowed me to live a life beyond my dreams”
“For that, I am forever grateful.”
