His next album, which comes out in the spring, will focus on dinosaurs -- a project sure to be particularly thoughtful and elaborate in his hands. For a recent appearance on TEDxMileHigh, however, Cooke focused on older songs: "Monster," "Music" and "Fortitude." Watch the performance below.
Cooke joins a short list of musicians to appear on the local version of the venerable TED Talk program. Others include Esme Patterson, Gregory Alan Isakov and the Water Girls (a bluegrass super-group of sorts from Lyons).
The next time you can catch him live will be January 15 at Syntax Physic Opera. Buy tickets here.
