Singer Songwriter Cooper
Check Cooper out Tonight at the Star Theater!
Cooper brings a fiery spirit and a massive voice to the turn table. She performs with a power and tenacity that is difficult for most young women to muster. Just named one of Nashville's top 5 artists on the rise for 2014 by Nashville Lifestyles Magazine, Cooper and her extraordinary band have been kicking ass in Music City and stealing hearts across the country. Music City Roots journalist Craig Havighurst calls Cooper "delightful, twinkly, impassioned, and on the make."
Born and raised in the rural Oregon coastal mountain range, she moved to Portland OR and put herself through college while performing in local night clubs and bartending at a seedy strip club. Upon graduation, she packed up her VW van and moved to Nashville TN to write and record her first album and to launch her dream career.
Cooper played her first show in Nashville opening for the Queen of Rock and Roll, Wanda Jackson, at a birthday bash held for fashion icon Manuel. Her music caught the ear of music industry notables and she recorded her full length album, Motown Suite, at The Tracking Room (as seen on ABC's new hit drama Nashville), one of Nashville's top recording studios.
Cooper has since, formed two bands on each side of the country. The Jam, complete with horn sections, and back up singer/dancers, is a collective of over 20 musicians that back her touring adventures. Her music is as big and bold as her ambition and her performances rock the house.
On Record Store Day 2013, Cooper performed on both sides of the country in one day. She Pulled a cross-country stunt that included 21 musicians, 2 planes, 2 record stores, and a lot of balls.
Most recently, Cooper and The Jam opened for Legends Mavis Staples and Robert Plant at the Waterfront Blues Festival in Portland OR.
Cooper's 7 inch single, Cooper Live at the Historic Star Theater, was selected as an official Record Store Day release, and the buzz has begun to spread as far as Japan, that this indie artist has something special. Cooper is a bright new talent that draws from the past and paints the future with a fresh and unique style.
