World Cafe Next: Phil Cook

Phil Cook.
Phil Cook.

Most often found as a bandmate or a collaborator, Phil Cook is rarely out front. His best-known project, Megafaun, formed when he and other members of the legendary Eau Claire, Wisc., band DeYarmond Edison relocated to North Carolina. Cook has found many like-minded musicians there — for example, MC Taylor of Hiss Golden Messenger, with whom he's collaborated extensively.

Now, though, comes Southland Mission, Cook's first solo album. It's a wonderful mix of country and folk, roots and rock.
