Amanda Cook is a writer/musician/lover of books who's been busy working on several musical projects. She uses music as her go-to mode of transportation and connection. Cook has released several albums that explore the intersections of faith/doubt, love/loss, hope/despair, and fun/not-fun under several monikers (Amanda Cook, Falcon, Ile Des Chenes). She enjoys writing songs that feel helpful, healing, and read like a poem with or without sound.
Her debut solo album, Brave New World, earned her a GMA Dove Award for "Inspirational Album of the Year." Songs she has penned include "You Make Me Brave," "Pieces," and "Closer." Her latest offering, State of the Union, was released in May 2022.
