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

By the age of 16 Cooper was playing his songs in Kansas City clubs and coffeehouses. Dana went on to tour the country, landed in Los Angeles and recorded his first album for Elektra Records in 1973. His diverse experiences as a taxi driver, warehouseman, nurses aid, gardener, waiter and touring musician continued to bring maturity and depth to his songwriting. Cooper’s move to Texas in the mid 70’s gained him legendary status in the Lone Star State.

Returning to his roots as a solo performer Cooper relocated to Nashville in 1988 where he has become an integral figure in the Music City songwriting community. He is repeatedly invited to participate as a mentor and teacher in songwriting workshops from Belfast to Copenhagen to Austin.

 

Dana’s prolific endeavors have resulted in 24 albums. His 25th, Building A Human Being, will be released in 2015.
