Originally from Cumming, Georgia, Lisa Cook comes from a family with a rich history of traditional music going back several generations. Among Lisa’s musical relatives are Atlanta Country Music Hall of Fame members Roy Westray (grandfather) and Frances Mooney (aunt). Lisa began learning to play
the bass at age 15 from her mother, Wanda Cook, her most dedicated and cherished musical influence, and was soon playing in the family band, Bluegrass Heritage.
Lisa’s other musical influences include fellow Georgia musicians such as Dale Roberts, her Aunt Frances, and her cousins, Matt and Mark Mundy. Lisa is also
to be credited with bringing the band its name, which is the residence at which they hold their weekly practice sessions!
She’s been a member of many bands including, but not limited to Coal Mountain, Rocky Top, Hickory Wind with Jerry and Helen Burke, and most recently, (and briefly), The Little Roy and Lizzy Show. After discovering she was expecting her first child, she chose to leave the hard work of being on the road
and shift her focus to more important things, her daughter, Emma.
In her spare time, Lisa enjoys reading, swimming, and most excitingly, playing with and watching her daughter learn what’s really important: Bluegrass.
