I'm Alma Cook (@HearAlma), a singer-songwriter originally from Madison, Wisconsin, & now based in Los Angeles. My biggest passion is conversation—asking questions that cause people to think more deeply about their choices & assumptions. These questions are peppered throughout the music I make, but they're also worked into discussion groups I lead, talks I give, things I write, & everyday interactions I have as I go about my daily life.
I don't consider myself a voice expert. I majored in vocal performance at Columbia College Chicago, but truth is that I'm a songwriter first, musical arranger second, & singer third. In fact, want me to be honest? I'm not even close to being a full-time musician. I work by day as a copy editor for an online encyclopedia. I'm just like most of you: hustling to subsidize my own artistry.
