Stream Pick: Sofa Sessions – Amy Cook

By: Laurie Gallardo

It’s a powerful voice of reclamation on Amy Cook‘s LP Okay Alright. For there is a poetry to the lifelong lesson of letting go. Hell, it’s practically an epic Greek poem with all the dramatic elements: Devastation, pain, fury, then a reckoning or realization, and ultimately, true happiness. This is Cook’s own journey toward that release.

In their ongoing efforts to raise awareness of mental health, the SIMS Foundation continues its very awesome Sofa Sessions live stream music series with a performance by Cook, happening tonight, Tuesday May 19th, at 6 p.m. (Central) on SIMS’ Facebook, Instagram, and their YouTube channel. It’s going to rule.
