Take Heed: New Artist Cooper Phillips
Russian starlet and LA native, Cooper Phillip debuts her very first music video, “Silence,” off her “Walk a Mile” EP. Cooper is mostly known for her impressive covers of Whitney Houston’s “I’m Your Baby Tonight“ and Jay Z and Justin Timberlake’s “Holy Grail“ collaboration. Her soulful voice can easily mimic the musical arrangement of each song, but it’s her sultry delivery that makes her performances stand out from the rest.
While the blonde beauty is just starting to build her career, her voice in the LA music scene is quickly becoming a topic of discussion as a strong vocalist amongst the likes of Ariana Grande, Adele, and Sam Smith. Listeners are also enticed by her songwriting skills that showcase her ability to write songs that had the potential to top the Billboard 100.
Prior to moving to New York at the age of 17, Cooper grew up listening to music legends like Ella Fitzgerald, Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, and Barbra Streisand. She even enrolled into the prestigious Moscow State Classical Academy where she studied classical piano, theory, harp, jazz, blues and voice. Now residing in Los Angeles, she is currently in partnership with Imaginary Ghost Management and is on a mission to make a splash on the music scene as she continues to blow people away with her multiple performances, such as her appearance at the legendary Viper Room.
In “Silence,” the songstress abandons heavy production, opting for just her piano and stage. The simplicity of the song is matched by the black and white visual, directed by Scott Nathan. Best known for his stunning images of icons like Katy Perry & Dita Von Teese, Phillip knew Scott was the best to create the spare, timeless, black & white visual backdrop for “Silence”. Cooper’s “Silence” will set the tone for her vocally and define her as an artist. With the potential to easily compete with today’s most talked about fall ballads, we are excited to see the singer continue to display true artistry as a vocalist, songwriter, and performer.
