Sam Cooper

After several years as a member of three nationally-acclaimed bands - Horse Feathers, Jared Mees and Sean Flinn - musician Sam Cooper has gone rogue, channeling his multi-instrumentalism into a truly solo album titled, "Long Lost Love".  Like a prism breaking a beam of white light into its multitudinous parts, his poetic, metaphorically-dense songs unwind on the album with complex layers of self-harmony backed by himself on a dozen multi-tracked instruments, with assistance from drummer Nick Werth.  His mastery takes the phrase "multi-instrumentalist" to impressive excess:  guitars, piano, violin, accordion, banjo, bass, organ, mandolin and even the charango (a kind of Andean lute).  Oh, and he sings, too. 

Throughout 2012, Sam has been playing solo around town while building up a full band, an  organically-grown assemblage of musicians featuring Jake Maynard on guitar/vocals, Jake Hershman on bass/vocals, and Nick Werth on drums/vocals.  Like their seismic namesake, Sam Cooper & the Earthquakes aim to spread throughout the Northwest, leaving Richter-scale musical aftershocks in their wake...



About Al's Den

Head downstairs at the Crystal Hotel to hang out in this music venue named for Al Winter, Portland's gambling overlord who, in the 1940s, managed his vast empire that spanned the Pacific Northwest and into Las Vegas from this very location. Today, we hold live music, artist residencies, pre- and post-concert performances and more.
