Nolan Cook is an American guitarist and composer based in Oakland, California, and was part of the band Dimesland with his brother Drew.

Cook is perhaps best known for his contributions to many projects by The Residents (as well as Charles Bobuck and Hardy Fox) from 1998 to the present.

History with The Residents

Nolan Cook began working with The Residents as early as 1998 when he played guitar on The Residents' Wormwood tour. He had been introduced to the group by their mutual acquaintance Molly Harvey.

Following this, Cook became a core member of the group's live line-up, acting as guitarist on the group's tours to the present day. Beginning with the group's version of the song "Matchmaker" which appeared on the compilation album Knitting On The Roof in 1999, he also began collaborating with the band on studio recordings.
