Phil Vassar (Bass) – Nashville (Session) – Sync Music (Composer)
Steve Cook has been called a 'bass player's bass player' by his peers for his uncompromising groove, energy and passion for music. His early influences were The Police, The Clash, The Beatles, and his Uncle Frank LaMarca, a journeyman jazz saxophone player with credits including Stan Getz and Charlie Parker.
Steve’s playing has been heard on worldwide album releases, major motion picture soundtracks, television, and his touring has taken him around the world. A player, producer, video director, and writer, Steve has taken the stage with such artists as Sister Hazel, Luke Bryan, Steve Cropper, Frankie Ballard, Course of Nature, Bucky Covington, and is currently touring with Phil Vassar. His product videos for Premier Guitar have over a million views, and he has been writing his popular blog for 15 years.
When on tour, Steve’s main gear is a custom Yamaha BB, Kohlman Bassworks ‘Miles’ short scale bass, Eden WT amps and matching cabinets. When at home, Steve writes on his 1965 J-45 and records with a custom Fender Telecaster and Yamaha Revstar into PreSonus Studio One Pro.
