Sometimes hidden gems can be found when you least expect it, so I was pleased to hear Phil Cooper’s music and was happy that I did.
Phil is a contemporary singer/songwriter who has earned excellent reviews from the national press, with his thought provoking songwriting and energetic live performances drawing comparisons to Neil Finn, Glenn Tilbrook and Ben Folds.
During his live shows, he makes a real connection with the crowd, whether it’s handing out dozens of egg shakers, or passing around his “doodle book” for the audience to draw in. Every now and then you’ll catch him unplugging his guitar and shunning the stage to stand right in among the captivated audience.
2016 is an exciting prospect that sees Phil turning his back on his life in executive management (he was Technical Director for an internet company) and plunge head first into a fully professional music career with the help of a brand new album, “Things I’ll Never Say”.
Phil can be found every Monday and Tuesday evenings participating in #MusicHourUK twitter hour – so do drop by and say hi to him.
When listening to his brand new album, ‘Things I’ll Never Say’ one song leaped out at me and that was ‘Let It Fall’ which offers bursts of effortless life backed up with hearty vocals. I would recommend you take a listen to it.
Phil is simply one of the best singer-songwriters around at this time and he has crafted his skill with such precision. Go and take a listen to more of Phil’s other music by clicking here.
If you would like to see Phil perform live click here to find our where and when he is performing. Remember if you draw him a doodle during his performance, it could appear on his #gigdoodle page on his website. That’s right, Phil asks his audience to draw him a doodle and his favourite one goes on to his website.
