Motown Style Ballads, Funky Upbeat Dance Tunes + Rock & Roll Guitars with Rich Harmonies!
Cooper's debut LP is a fervid kaleidoscope of colorful songs that pour from
her heart, onto a turntable and spill over onto the dance floor. This passionate
artist draws from the past and paints the future with a fresh and unique
style.Written and recorded in Nashville TN, the 10 song album is a soulful
assortment of Motown style ballads and funky upbeat dance tunes sprinkled with
rock and roll guitars and rich harmonies. This genre blending mood ring of a
record bleeds soulful emotion, then smacks of sass and sex.
The album was recorded at The Tracking Room (as seen on ABC's new hit drama
'Nashville'), one of Nashville's top recording studios. Produced by David
Norris, it was mixed and mastered by Grammy winning engineer, Charles Yingling,
at The Blue Room Studios.
Fresh on the scene, Cooper brings a fiery spirit and a massive voice to the
turntable. She performs with a power and tenacity that is difficult for most
young women to muster. Known for her belting vocals and high energy dance moves,
this firecracker knows how to put on a show. In March 2011, Cooper packed up her
VW van in Portland OR and made the quest to Nashville, TN. The flame-haired
songstress had paid dues playing in bands, acting in local productions and
bartending at a seedy rock 'n roll strip club. It was time to take a shot at her
life time dream. After months of knocking on doors, typical hard luck and
sleeping on an air mattress in an old 60's hotel room, Cooper finally got
someone to pay attention to her music and her talent. She began working with a
producer and started writing the record she has always wanted to make.
Cooper played her first show in Nashville opening for the Queen of Rock and Roll
herself, Wanda Jackson. Her music caught the ear of music industry notables and
soon she caught fire. She assembled two 10-piece soul bands on opposite sides of
the country and began gigging with them both. On Record Store Day 2013 she
pulled a cross-country double-header, performing in the morning in Nashville TN
and later that night in Portland OR.
Her 7-inch single, Cooper ''Live at the Historic Star Theater'' was recently
selected as an official Record Store Day 2013 release and the buzz has begun to
spread as far as Japan that this indie artist has something special.
