Amanda Cook to Advance Artist Support – new album on the way

Advance Artist Support, an artist representation,  social media management, and promotions company in Advance, NC, has announced the signing of Amanda Cook and The Amanda Cook Band to the agency. Mandy Tenery, who runs the organization, will take over these services for Cook and her group.

Tenery manages and books a number of other artists in bluegrass and related fields, like Balsam Range, Thomm Jutz, Unspoken Tradition, Anya Hinkle, and the Jon Stickley Trio, so she will be able to hit the ground running with Amanda. Advance will represent Cook going forward, and provide management services.

Amanda says that the timing is perfect for this move, as she is set to start recording her next album later this mo nth.

“Going into 2022, and releasing my 4th album project with Mountain Fever, the band and I are looking forward to working with Mandy at Advance Artist Support. I love the work she’s done with Balsam Range and my good friend, Thomm Jutz.

We are scheduled in the studio next week to track the entire project, so be looking for a single in January sometime! We pulled material from some of our favorite writers and are proud of the mix of songs that we have chosen and arranged. I’m really excited about the project and all the behind the scene things we have planned for the new album.”

The Amanda Cook Band includes Cook on guitar and lead vocal, Carolyne Van Lierop-Boone on banjo, George Mason on fiddle, Josh Paul on bass, Brady Wallen on lead guitar, and Troy Boone on mandolin.

Their most recent release was When You Come Back Down, their take on this Tim O’Brien song previously recorded by Nickel Creek.
