After 16 years of musical training, classical guitarist Jesse Cook established a serious musical career in composition and production, seemingly incognizant of his own talent for performance. A gifted instrumentalist, Cook’s ability as a performer came to widespread public attention in the mid 1990s and only because a cable television company played his recordings as piped in background music for the television channel guide.

Accordingly, he released his first album literally by popular demand and in response to the myriad call-in requests from television viewers who enjoyed the background sounds on the channel guide. The album debuted at number 14 on the Billboard New Age chart. By 2000, Cook’s performances regularly drew sell out crowds, and his recordings sold quickly to an eager public. In 2001, three of his four albums had attained gold certification in his native Canada.
