About David Cook
As the story goes, David Cook took up music at a young age to impress a girl. In his case, it was the violin and the young girl was in orchestra. It was not until seventh grade that his father bought him a Fender Stratocaster to continue exploring his musical ambitions. His parents were supportive and even helped to educate their son about diverse musical genres. According to David Cook, "My parents had eclectic record collections. My mom liked Kenny Rogers and my dad was more into Boston, Kansas and Dire Straits. The first cassette tape I ever bought was by Kris Kross. I was into Boyz II Men for a while. When I was 13, someone played me the song, 'Closer,' by Nine Inch Nails and once I got past the audacity of the lyrics, I really enjoyed the song. So I backtracked through rock, which got me where I am now."
By the time David Cook reached high school, he formed a band with one of his friends and became involved in musical theater. After graduating, he attended Central Missouri State, where he managed to focus both on his studies and further develop his band, Axium. By the time he graduated, he was put in a position to choose between a career as a graphic designer or musician. He decided to follow his passion with music and moved to Tulsa. In order to create an album, his friends came together to provide financial assistance to complete, Analog Heart. The album was met with regional fame and led to the receipt of an URBY award by the Urban Tulsa Weekly for Best Independent Album.
While working on his second album, Cook's brother, Andrew, decided to try out for American Idol. Andrew wanted David to help support him in this endeavor. At first, David Cook was not interested, but eventually came around. According to David Cook, "At the last minute, I decided to do it. Andrew and I were in the same group of four for the first audition and he didn't make the cut. It was very awkward. I turned to him and said, 'Is this something you want me to do? Because if you don't, I won't.' And his response was, 'If you don't, I'll beat your ass.' So it's entirely his and my mother's fault that this happened to me, and I'm very grateful." It was impressive that David's brother was supportive of him in spite of not making it onto the show himself. It proved to be a huge boost to David Cook's career as a musician.
