"DEVIN COOPER IS UNREAL.

HE'S ONLY 22 YEARS OLD, AND HE'S THE REAL DEAL."

- AARON PRITCHETT

ABOUT DEVIN

Devin Cooper is a southern rock-country artist from Innisfail, Alberta. 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 father. 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 75 songs to date (with co-writers in Alberta and Nashville) and has performed 120 times in the last year alone. He kicked off 2019 with a sold out show in Red Deer, AB as an opener for Aaron Pritchett, and his performance with the infamous rapper, “Afroman” in March of this year 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 plans to release new music in 2019 with the help of Juno Award winning producers, Spencer Cheyne and Justin Kudding.

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

PETER MICHAELS - PROGRAM DIRECTOR - 106.7 THE DRIVE

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 - 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."

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!"
