Patrick Cooper

Patrick Cooper is an Acoustic Singer/Songwriter from New Orleans, Louisiana. The son of a North Louisiana Hillbilly and a South Louisiana Cajun, Patrick has been playing the guitar and singing in public since age 12. Starting in his hometown of Shreveport, Louisiana (home of the Louisiana Hayride and Leadbelly) and then later in Baton Rouge (Lazy Lester, Johnny Rivers), he has played music from the 60's rock explosion to Folk, Country, Blues and New Orleans style R & B. Patrick has written or co-written songs that are a blend of Blues, Rock, R&B, Folk and Country (Americana).

A number of these songs were recorded in the '80's and sold at performances (with fellow performer Russell Bailey) in Baton Rouge and New Orleans. In 1988, Patrick moved from Baton Rouge to Santa Cruz, California (where Old Hippies go to die), and after recovering from the culture shock started performing on the West Coast. Out West Patrick could be found performing solo or onstage with a number of talented musicians including John Craigie (A Seasoned San Francisco based Touring Troubadour), Mark Gloster (in a duo known as Rubber Shark Gumbo), and Kevin Jenkins (Slide Guitarist Extraordinaire). Another sometime collaborator was the late Karen Stern (a talented satirical singer/songwriter). He has been on numerous tours with Craigie, from the Pacific Northwest to California to Texas and Louisiana.

After over 23 great years in California, Patrick found himself missing his home state and moved to New Orleans in 2011. He plays regularly at venues all over New Orleans and Louisiana. He opened for David Egan and Twenty Years of Trouble at the legendary Maple Leaf Bar in New Orleans in 2011 and has opened for Darrell Scott, David Bromberg, John Craigie, Sugarcane Jane, The War and Treaty, Mipso and Will Kimbrough, among others. His album "Gris Gris In Your Face" music was released in 2013 and the EP "Somewhat Live" was released in 2020.
