Praise for Emma’s Sophomore album Hit & Run:

“This fun album has personality written all over it! She has fun with lyrics, and plays around with her beautiful vocal abilities. Cook’s folky, country sound with a pop, is something fans will soon fall in love with.”
LUCID FORGE, Canadian Entertainment Magazine, July 2008

“Emma Cook can be a jazzy hipster a la Rickie Lee Jones, an eclectic avant-folkie like Joni Mitchell, or a soulful ingenue of the Dusty Springfield school. She takes the best of my heroines and gives us Hit & Run.
MUSES MUSE, Washington, June 2008

“Emma Cook has a lovely voice, in places reminiscent of Ani Difranco’s girly growl, but mostly a soulful croon that slides effortlessly across genres she fuses on her sophomore release, Hit & Run, a little jazz and blues feeling with touch of cabaret! VUE WEEKLY, Edmonton, June 2008

“It’s been four years since folk-rock artist Emma Cook recorded a studio album but she hasn’t forgotten how to do it well. More than the music, which is very good, Hit & Run showcases the singer’s personality. That would be edgy with a capital E. It works for her.” MY KAWARTHA, Peterborough, May 2008

“Cook has impressively managed to maintain a very raw and natural sound despite years of classical training. She has also managed to avoid a pre-packaged sound to come up with something all her own.” 
CLINTON NEWS-RECORD, Ontario, May 2008

“Toronto-based folkie Emma Cook sings like an angel! It’s tough not to be won over by Cook’s luminous approach to crafting songs a refreshing change of pace when so many artists try so hard to be, well, pretty much the same.”
