After high school, Cook began working on her singing career with power-manager Harry Barter (George Martin, Ultravox, Dead or Alive, Paul Young). She formed a band with her brother Jason Cook and guiatrist Tony Wade called Reno.
Reno eventually relocated to Nashville and landed a record deal with Curb Records. After one album for Curb and a nationwide tour Reno disbanded. Reno's self-title album is available on iTunes.
