You’ll love this week’s CMChat One To Watch. Guaranteed. On behalf of CMchatLIVE.com, let me introduce you to singer/songwriter Ross Cooper. The Country Music/Americana/Folk singer has a new album, Give It Time, coming out on March 18 and is now available for pre-order on iTunes.
Hearing his super smooth voice that only adds to an already easyily listenable vibe of music, one might say that he has a more mature sound than his age would give off. Perhaps it’s due to the fact that his lyrics are real, personal and relatable. He told NashvilleGab that one of his musical influences is that of Ryan Adams due to the fact that he can set the mood with a song. Well, that’s exactly what this Texas born singer can do as his music can fit any americana, country or rock mold.
Matt Bjorke from Roughstock said, “A veteran of the Rodeo circuit, the twentysomething singer/songwriter doesn’t sound anything like you’d expect a former rodeo cowboy to sound like. Instead he makes smart, interesting songs like this, the title track from his latest album.”
His latest album Give It Time makes a case for long-term listening, the kind of music headphones were designed for. It’s an intimate listening experience that starts with the introspective title track and segues to story songs.
“I think my approach to this album is different from projects that I’ve worked before because I’ve lived more,” Cooper says, “and I hope listeners can tell that my writing has changed because of it. I finished tracking this album right before I moved to Nashville, so in a way it represents a huge life change.”
