Megan Cooper - Junk Bar
Singer songwriter from Brisbane via the Woronora River.
Megan Cooper’s music: it’s high country, folksy, vintage, honest… the sonic equivalent of a fragrant cup of tea with a sneaky shot of something a little stronger.
With addictive melodies and extraordinary tales of common hearts, Cooper’s been earning praise since the release of her critically acclaimed debut album, Ghosts, Choirs & Kings in 2014.
For someone who sings the sad songs, she sure has a good time doing it. Her live shows are full of energy, sweet harmony and dry observation of the everyday. A natural performer, Cooper layers her shows with earthiness, energy and outstanding songwriting.
She has an inbuilt affinity with everything that is good in twang, delivering a deliciously elegant serving of aural sweetness that is rooted in the traditions of Americana and Australian Folk.
Cooper has performed at Gympie Muster, Tamworth Country Music Festival, Urban Music Festival, Woodford Folk Festival, Bony Mountain, Neurum Creek and Airey's Inlet festivals; as well as touring both here and overseas.
Her second album, Wild Mountain, featuring the lead single Running with Ghosts, is due for release on 20 July. And she couldn’t be more excited!
