My name is Colin Cooper- singer, and songwriter, and creative anachronist. I fell in love with Celtic folk years ago, and kept loving it as I tried my hand at other projects. I dabbled in the alt-rock scene with Micoan, composed for animated projects with Jubilant Dinosaur Productions, learned to play a myriad of instruments, and drank a lot of coffee.
These days I’m a solo artist in Grand Rapids, MI, strumming out folk songs between dayjobs. It feels like coming home, back to my first love. I can only describe it as a very natural, organic process.
My current project, the Old Salt EP, is a collection of story-songs about my life in the context of a much older tale, blending Celtic and American Folk into a dialogue about humanity, struggle, love, and heritage. I’d like to share that story with you.
