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...
