Dana Cooper
Cooper's lifelong passion & devotion to music began at age 2 in Kansas City. His father, George, was a huge influence. One of Dana's earliest memories is of his father taking him to the Calico Cat, popping a coin in the jukebox and listening to Dana sing along with Hank Williams & Ernest Tubb.

At age 20 a move to LA resulted in a record deal with Elektra Records where he recorded his first album with members of The Section Russ Kunkel and Leleand Sklar, as well as other luminary players Jim Horn, Al Perkins, Jim Gordon, Joe Osborne, and Lee Holdridge. This album still wins accolades today and was recently reissued on the Warner/Japan label.

After several years in California and a year recording in Seattle, Cooper moved to Texas where he wrote and performed with Shake Russell. They released several independent albums and one album for Southcoast/MCA.

Dana formed his own experimental bands, DC3, and Nuclear Family and released his first solo project Complicated Stuff. In 1988 he moved to Nashville, TN to pursue his songwriting career collaborating with other songwriters:
Tom Kimmel        Sally Barris
Don Henry            Pat Alger
Hal Ketchum        Kim Carnes
Josh Leo                Pierce Pettis
Kim Richey          Allen Shamblin    

His years as a Troubadour is measured by his impressive 28 Albums and Collection of Accolades:

Coope'rs songs have been recorded by a variety of artists such as bluegrass singer Claire Lynch, Irish vocalist Maura OConnell, Nashville songbird Jonell Mosser, as well as songwriters Pierce Pettis and Susan Werner.
