Originally from the northeast, Cooper began formal musical training at age 4, earned a music scholarship
at Arizona State University, majoring in Business Management and Theater, culminating in a B.B.A. (Music Industry emphasis)
from Belmont University. His formal music industry career began in Nashville at Bobby Goldsboro’s House of Gold
Music and Eddie Rabbit’s Briarpatch/DebDave Music companies, forging an artist-oriented independent publishing vision
of the music business, and continuing that path as the Creative Director for Lenono Music, the publishing company of John
Lennon and Yoko Ono.
Hitting Los Angeles
in the mid 1980’s: As Managing Director of Lippman Kahane Entertainment, he helped rep management music clients such
as George Michael, Melissa Manchester and Megadeth, and solidified global co-ventures for the firm (w/ EMI Music, Warner/Chappell
Music and Polygram Records). Working with LKE’s roster brought Cooper into the film music world, moving on to
head the Film/TV Music Department for Motown’s Jobete Music (catalogs of Stevie Wonder, Smokey Robinson, etc.).
During this time, Cooper wrote and produced songs for various films as well as network TV themes (CBS’s “Major
Dad,” FOX”s “Glory Days,” NBC’s “Sister Kate”). The early 1990’s marked
a return to Nashville, helping to kick start careers for artists such as Sony’s superstar duo Montgomery-Gentry.
Relocating once again to the west coast, Cooper served as a strategic manager for companies expanding into the Film/Music
arena, including eMusic.com, ARTISTdirect.com, classical label Cala Records, the Jim Croce catalogue, and Rick Wakeman of
