with Wonderbound, Ian Cooke, and Michael J. Henry
“I am absolutely ecstatic to tell you that this weekend Gone West, the collaboration between Wonderbound, Michael J. Henry and myself opens! I’ll be joined by my lovely bandmates, and we’ll be playing 10 songs from my two albums, as well as 8 new pieces written for the ballet. We’ve been working on this show for over a year, so it’s going to be really special. There will be 3 performances this weekend in Denver at The Pinnacle, and 2 next weekend in Parker at PACE Center.” – Ian Cooke

UPDATE: Records are sold-out. -
We’ve partnered with Meep Records and artist Brittany Gould to create an extremely limited number of 7″ vinyl records, each paired with one-of-a-kind artwork.
Only 33 records will be cut. They will be released with a show on May 30th, 2013 at Deer Pile in Denver: 8pm doors.
9pm: The Seven Hats, Joshua Novak, Rachael Pollard, Esme Patterson, Chris Jusell, Elin Palmer, Darrel Gill, and Chimney Choir cover Cooke songs.
10pm: Ian Cooke solo set.
The record features two unreleased songs recorded during the Fortitude sessions: “Love Where You Live” and “Criminal” – neither are available for streaming or download anywhere.
As a bonus, the 7″ will include a bonus digital download of four cover songs.
The 7″s are individually cut by Meep Records using a vintage Presto K-8 lathe. They are clear vinyl, mono, and play at 33 1/3 rpm. They are individually cut rather than being made from a stamper so every record is unique. The artwork was hand-cut, assembled, and hand-numbered by Brittany Gould. Each cover is unique.
There will only be 33 records available. Of those, a very limited amount are available for pre-sale here: http://
In addition, Cooke will be selling his CDs, LP, and new shirts, available in nearly every color, shape, and style. Each is also one-of-a-kind.
Good interview, discussion of looping, and performance of ‘Fortitude’
Ian Cooke and 303 Choir meet, rehearse, and perform together in Stages, a 23-minute doc about musical collaboration. In this short doc, produced by Ray Trout and Ian O’Dougherty, 303 Choir (local singers aged 9 to 16) sing harmony with local cellist and songwriter Ian Cooke on his post-apocalyptic song “Rover” from his most recent album ‘Fortitude.’
Trout, a local media producer, and O’Dougherty, a local musician (Ian Cooke, Uphollow, Tauntaun, Eolian) and video editor, have been producing this doc since early 2012 with no budget, and will be offering downloads to try to fund more Stages docs.
The download includes an HD video file of the final performance, plus a 5-track EP featuring several versions of the song, documenting the evolution from demo to finale. The ‘pay-what-you-want’ download is available here ( <——- click the word “download” – down and to the left ).
