JP Cooper –British singer and songwriter
JP Cooper’s full name is John Paul Cooper. He was born on 1 November 1983 in the Manchester suburbs. When he was a child, Cooper was much more into sports than into music. He started appreciating music in the teenage years. John discovered grunge and taught himself how to play the guitar. In high school, Cooper had his own band. Later, John discovered soul. He listened to such artists as Donny Hathaway and Ben Harper. After high school, Cooper worked as a barman. In his free time, the aspiring singer recorded songs.
Cooper began his music career rather late. When he was 29 years old, JP released his first two EPs ЕР1 and ЕР2. The albums didn’t become hits overnight or make it into the charts. However, the artist managed to get some attention from the critics and alternative rock fans. A year later, in 2013, John released one more album with a telling name ЕР3. The series of three albums allowed John to collect an army of fans without getting into popular charts.
In 2014, Cooper released another EP, Keep the Quiet Out. It featured such successful songs as “Colour Me In Gold”, “What Went Wrong”, “A Little While Longer”, “Ocean 2”, and “Keep The Quiet Out”. A year later, the artist presented one more EP, When the Darkness Comes.
