All Our Hands Are Dirty is full of hooky, repeated choruses, crisp instrumentation, and over the top, raw emotion. Certainly, this foolproof formula will have him selling out arenas on both sides of the border. In the meantime, Cook has already received several songwriting awards (The Canadian Niagara Music 2008 Songwriter and Album of the Year and The Great American Song Contest 2008 Honour Award) for lead off track “Nostalgia.” Said track is a perfect example of Cook’s natural ability to bare his soul and it’s that fearlessness that makes his work so accessible. Producer Frank Gryner (Leviride, Bon Jovi, and Rob Zombie) cooks up a solid backing band consisting of veteran L.A drummer Scotty Kormos, Adam Kury (LA Guns, Candlebox), and lead guitarist Jason Orme (Alanis Morissette, Daniel Powter) who add just enough to give Cook’s acoustic based songs some much needed punch. Also, making an appearance is legendary metal guitarist Waddy Wachtel on key tracks “The Light of Mississippi” (which is dedicated to the Oprah Winfrey “her wisdom and light continue to light my way”) and the-should-be-next-single “Are You Happy.” Overall, Cook’s familiar sound is not my cup of tea but you can’t deny his talent and potential for mass appeal.

I have had the pleasure of knowing and working with JAGGER COOK for some years now, in which I have seen him perform LIVE on many occassions. His current project “All Our Hands Are Dirty” offers many facets of pure rock sprinkled which resinates the transparency of Jagger’s heart and soul – being the true artist and human that he is. With 538,019 Views, 521,591 Plays and 34,531 fans and friends on MySpace alone – they will attest to Jagger Cook as an artist, performer and human. So … I guess if “one” loan individual who showed up was not happy, it’s alright … because rest assure … the rest that were there truly LOVED him and will continue to support him and his music. As the song says “one bad old monkey don’t stop “NO” show” ROCK ON JAGG! I’ve seen Jagger Cook perform LIVE probably over 15 times in the last 2 years and I have to say that his shows are absolutely AMAZING !!! He really knows how to engage the audiance and bring us into HIS WORLD…not to mention that his VOCALS are SPOT ON – IN TUNE and KICK ASS EVERYTIME…I mean the guy is nominated for best “Pop Vocalist of the Year” by the Los Angeles Music awards and “International Artist of the Year” by the Hollywood Music Awards…I think Lisa should get her ears and her head checked…LOL….I’ve met Jagger at his shows and he takes the time to talk to all his fans individually and sign autographs…the guy even gave me a hug…LOL…he is, in my humble opinion, a CLASS ACT and a WORLD CLASS ARTIST….YOU WON”T BE DISAPOINTED !!!!! Good Luck on the awards JAG…you so deserve them and you’ve earned them brother!!!!
