ABOUT DEVIN

MUSIC

Southern-Rock influenced Country may seems 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.

 

In July 2020, Cooper released his single "Last Time Last" which was was produced by Juno Award Winning Producers Spencer Cheyne and Justin Kudding. Cooper co-wrote the song with Nashville writers Drew Smith and Chris Yurchuck.

March of 2021 saw the first single off of Cooper's debut EP being relied "Good Things." Co-written by Cooper, Alee, and Manning Rothrock, and produced by Spencer Cheyne and Justin Kudding, "Good Things" debuted as  the #1 most played song on Sirius XM Country. 

Cooper is set for more singles to be released this summer before dropping his Debut EP in the fall of 2021.

“Devin Cooper is an amazing performer. We’ve had him in THE DRIVE studio for several live on air performances and he kills it, Every. Single. Time!

 

Cooper continues to grow & mature with each single he releases! He’s really come into his own on the latest release “No Chasing You”, which has seen airtime on 106.7 The Drive. Powerful vocals and guitar work that wouldn’t sound out of place alongside Colin James & Stevie Ray Vaughan!"

"Devin Cooper is a pure talent. One of the most gifted musicians to have graced our stage.  His drive & professionalism make him stand out and he delivers with every performance."

CORY NOEL - PROGRAM DIRECTOR - 96.5 CKFM

OLDS, AB

"Devin Cooper's pure rock and roll soul has drawn comparisons to both early Elvis Presley and a young Colin James. The music itself is only overshadowed by the live performances, where you can truly experience the quality of his guitar playing, which always steals the show!"
