About the artist
“Cooper's unique sound blends country, blues and rock and roll. His live shows are guaranteed to deliver, with raw storytelling lyrics and killer guitar licks that provide a dynamic performance. ”
Southern-Rock influenced Country may seem a bit contradictory in the Great White North, but that's exactly where Devin Cooper hangs his hat. As the son of a motorcycle shop owner and custom car builder, Devin’s childhood was filled with opportunities to be creative as he worked alongside his old man. At the age of seven, he began playing guitar and eventually traded in his tool kit for a chance at a career in music. Devin’s original music is heavily influenced by the artists he grew up listening to in his dad’s shop such as Johnny Cash, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and ZZ Top. Cooper’s rock n’ roll attitude paired with his thoughtful songwriting make him a trailblazer who continually pushes the boundaries of the country music genre. Cooper has spent that past three years developing his unique sound. His raw and honest vocals are supported by technical, but captivating guitar playing. He has spent much of the past year developing as a performer and as a songwriter. He has written a total of 150 songs to date (with co-writers in Alberta and Nashville) and has performed 250 times in the last year alone. Cooper kicked off 2020 with a sold out headlining show in Calgary, AB at the King Eddy. Over the past 3 years, Cooper has performed alongside some of Canada’s and America’s top talent including Aaron Pritchett, Gord Bamford, and Lou Gramm of Foreigner. In 2019, his performance with the infamous rapper, “Afroman” made national headlines. After releasing his latest single, “Nothing On You” in April, 2018, Cooper received numerous award nominations. He was nominated for: Male Artist of the Year, Songwriter of the Year (YYC Music Awards), Song of The Year, Video of The Year, Fans Choice (Alberta Country Music Awards), and won Artist of the Year at the Red Deer Entertainment Awards. Cooper is set to release new music in July 2020 with the help of Juno Award winning producers, Spencer Cheyne and Justin Kudding.
