Introducing Hein Cooper to the A&R Report. This young Australian blew my mind a couple days ago at a concert in Quebec city. Mixing solo guitar and electro sounds, Cooper delivers great immersive music. Signed by Franz Schuller and the indie label Indica Records (Half Moon Run), a Montreal based label, Cooper headed to Montreal in 2014 and recorded his debut self-titled EP with producer Marcus Paquin (Arcade Fire, The National, The Local Natives, Hey Rosetta).
Hein’s blend of indie and pop, emotive lyrics are all woven together by his delicately desperate vocal performance. Make sure to catch Hein Cooper performances at the Canadian Music Week in Toronto starting Wednesday May 6th through May 8th.
