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 of 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. For fans of: Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings, Grace Potter, Amy Winehouse, Adele, Duffy, Joss Stone, Janis Joplin, Mayer Hawthorne, Stax Records, and Motown Records among others. Gatefold vinyl LP with download from Violet Fire Records.
