Please join us as we welcome the great singer/songwriter and “powerhouse” troubadour, Dana Cooper, who has dedicated himself to a life of music for well over 40 years. This song poet engages and inspires audiences around the world with his quick wit, insightful stories and commanding presence.

Cooper’s mixture of flat-picking, finger-picking and percussive strumming style is legend among other guitarists. An expressive singer and prolific songwriter, his voice is ageless, evoking a rich lifetime of experience.

Dana was signed to Elektra Records where his eponymous first album was released in 1973. The record features such acclaimed players as Leland Sklar, Russ Kunkel and Jim Horn. Cooper eventually moved to Austin, Texas, writing, performing and recording with Shake Russell in the late 70s and with his own power trio, DC3 during the early 80s. Returning to his roots as a solo performer Cooper relocated to Nashville in 1988. He has become an integral figure in the Music City songwriting community collaborating with renowned writers such as Tom Kimmel, Sally Barris, Kim Carnes and Don Henry. Cooper has been invited to participate in songwriting workshops from Belfast to Copenhagen to Austin.

The fall of 2017 saw Dana Cooper release his 28th album of fine music: Incendiary Kid on Travianna Records.
