Southern-Rock influenced country may seem contradictory in the Great White North, but that's where Devin Cooper hangs his wide-brimmed hat. Nominated for three Country Music Alberta Awards in 2021, including "Horizon Male Artist of the Year," Cooper's signature sound is identifiable by his thoughtful songwriting and gritty rock 'n roll vocals.

 

Gearing up for his debut record release in spring 2022, he has released five singles to date. Most notably, "Good Things," the lead single and title track of the record, was released in March 2021: it was the #1 most played song the week of its release on CBC Sirius XM Country. Just days before making his debut on the Nashville North Stage at the Calgary Stampede in July 2021, Cooper released his second single, "Country Cliche," to all streaming platforms. Featuring down-home banjo and anthemic 1980s drum tones, both songs blur the line between country and rock 'n roll and are a taste of what's to come: Cooper does country music his way and doesn't apologize for it.

 

As the son of a motorcycle shop owner and custom car builder, Devin had ample opportunities to be creative working alongside his old man as he grew up. At seven years old, he began playing guitar and eventually traded in his tool kit for a music career. Since 2019, Cooper has written over 200 songs and has performed over 300 live shows. Most notably, he was a writer ANNIKA x Brett Kissel's duet, Encore, and on the 2021 CCMA Nominated Album, The Ride, by Ryan Lindsay.

 

In 2020 Cooper performed a sold-out headlining show at The King Eddy in Calgary, Alberta. When the global pandemic hit, he performed safely at a sold-out drive-in show, where he and Mariya Stokes were direct support for CCMA Award Winner Jade Eagleson.

 

Aside from music, Cooper has a long history of volunteering with Alberta Health Services. Starting at the young age of 7 years old, Cooper began volunteering at the Continuing Care Facility in Olds, AB where his mom works. Those volunteer days quickly turned into regular performances for the residents at the care facility, which made a lasting impact on him in his younger years. He was able to see first hand, the positive impact that music has on folks who are living with Alzheimer’s disease. In 2019, Cooper launched “Ride To Remember”, a charity event in support of the Alzheimer Society of Calgary. Ride To Remember is now in its 3rd Annual Year, and has raised over $12,000 to date, to help support the areas of greatest need at the Alzheimer Society in Calgary.

 

“I’m really excited for this next chapter of my music, and life.” Cooper says, leading up to the release of his debut record. “I can’t wait to get back on the road, play some shows, and meet some new fans this summer”.

ADAM OPPENHEIM - PRESIDENT

- STAMPEDE ENTERTAINMENT

“Devin Cooper is a pleasure to work with.  A talented musician and a professional operator.  With a well-executed marketing strategy, Devin sold out the King Eddy in advance of his show.  I’m looking forward to working with him again!”

PETER MICHAELS - PROGRAM DIRECTOR

- 106.7 REWIND - RED DEER, AB

“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!"

BRENNEN WOWK - OWNER / AGENT

- BO'S BAR & STAGE - RED DEER, AB

"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."

RUSSMAN - ON AIR PERSONELL

- CJAY 92 - CALGARY, AB

"He's a great talent with a great future and a wicked guitar player!"

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!"
