Stik Cook

Stik Cook Born in Yorkshire, UK, from a musical family of more than 3 generations of respected musicians.

Stik first started playing drums at the age of 9 years, after his father gave him the musical instrument as a present. Versatile, after years of successful drumming, Stik took up the bass guitar gradually moving onto the double bass.

He received influencial tutoring from UK bass player Jeff Clyne, and New York bass player Reid Anderson.

He has played with recognised jazz artists such as Clark Tracey, Steve Waterman, David DeFries, Pedro Cortejosa, Celia Mur, Guillermo Morente, Dario Moreno, David Lenker, Ramon Cardo but also in various clubs and festivals around the world including London, San Francisco and Shanghai.

Stik now resides in the South of Spain, where he shares his musical activities with his osteopathic practice in Ronda and his recently born twin boys.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
