The River - Aly Cook

Listen to track sample

Aly Cook

The River

from the Brand New Day album.

The River is the next single from Kiwi singer/songwriter ALY COOK's critically acclaimed Debut album Brand New Day. The last two single releases Midnight Sun and Country Storm both reached the Top 20 on the Country Tracks Top 30 and Mildura Hot 100 Charts. Awarded New Zealand Female Country Artist of the Year 2012, Aly was recently the opening act to BOB CORBETT at Rooty Hill RSL and performed at the Canberra Country Music Festival where she was well received by Australian Country Music fans. The River is an upbeat ballad with wailing pedal steel and Aly's cocoa-warm alto voice expressing an analogy of life and its struggles. The video is filmed punting Christchurch's Avon River and Aly hopes the video exposure will encourage people to visit earthquake damaged Christchurch to enjoy the special beauty of New Zealand’s Garden City.
