Elizabeth Cook Sets New Don Was Produced Album Release

Elizabeth Cook will release Welder on May 11th on 31 Tigers. Produced by Don Was (Rolling Stones, Kris Kristofferson), Welder features guest appearances by Dwight Yoakam, Rodney Crowell and Buddy Miller.

Welder is the follow up to Cook's 2007's Rodney Crowell produced and critically acclaimed, Balls. Cook chose an eclectic cast of players to record Welder. She started with her road band, which consists of her husband Tim Carroll on guitar, Marco Giovino (Patty Griffin, Robert Plant) on drums and Bones Hillman from Midnight Oil on bass. She turned to some familiar faces and voices from the Grand Ole Opry adding Tim Atwood on keys and The Carol Lee Singers on background vocals.

Her most personal collection of songs to date, Welder features vivid snapshots of EC's life ("Heroin Addict Sister" and "Mama's Funeral") as well as witty hillbilly- tinged humor ("El Camino" and "Yes To Booty"). Cook wrote the majority of Welder herself with a few noteworthy exceptions. "I'm Beginning To Forget" was penned by her late mother, Joyce Cook and "Follow You Like Smoke and "Til Then" by Tim Carroll. Don Was also brought her "Not California" by NYC indie folk band, Hem.

In addition to her full touring schedule, EC hosts "Apron Strings" on XM/Sirius' Outlaw Country station Monday through Friday 6-10 am Eastern. Every morning, the always witty Cook offers household tips, fashion advice and recipes to legions of devoted fans coast to coast.

"Heroin Addict Sister" and "El Camino" are posted for preview on Cook's Myspace page: http://www.myspace.com/elizabethcook
