Review of Ryan Cook – Wrestling With Demons (Independent)


Country music runs deep in the veins of Nova Scotia’s Ryan Cook. This combined with Cook’s wicked sense of humour makes Wrestling With Demons a thoroughly enjoyable listen.  Not just anybody could get away with crooning of the perils of 21st Century dating (Facebook Waltz) while also name-checking Andre The Giant in I’ll Love You Till The End of the World. Luckily, Cook never lets the humour negatively dominate the record; the integrity of the songs on Wrestling With Demons remains firmly in tact throughout.
