Cooper Brown never wanted to be a solo artist. From taking drum lessons in high school to watching friends practice chords and repeating it on a borrowed guitar, he knew that music was his career path – but with the help of some friends.
Brown studied music and songwriting at Belmont University in Nashville, Tennessee before moving back to his hometown of Jackson in 2014. Although he was playing shows on his own, through networking he met Phoebe Scott, Will Kwasigroh, Matt Hammonds, and Joseph Kyle.
Scott remembers playing at a dive bar in Jackson. She was 15 years old at the time, so when Brown flagged her down after her set and asked her to join his band, she had to get her parent’s permission. With a yes from mom and a cautious dad who attended the first few practice sessions, Scott was just one of the puzzle pieces that made Coopertheband.
“After a few practices and time spent getting to know each other, we quickly became more than a band,” Brown said. “We became very close friends and family, each of us believing in the band as a viable career option and what it could become.”
The name Coopertheband stuck for a few reasons. Besides wanting to steer clear of a full-on solo career, Brown said the single word represents the closeness they are to one another. Despite joking about the band name, Scott agrees that the name represents all of them.
“The rest of band likes the say that Cooper is just a narcissist so we’re just “theband”, but really Cooper is just a seasoned professional and the actual backbone of the band. He earned his spot at the front of the name, and the front of the band,” she said.
The band’s latest release, Kingdoms, began as a concept album based on the life of David from the Bible, which is a follow up to their last release, Kings. As they were going through the writing process and comparing David’s life experiences to their own, the concept of the songs became more of an exploration of the human experience. While they all connected with David and thought his story was important, they began to write their way through their own experiences – marriage, death, relationships – and it became more about what they wanted to say versus what David had already said.
Songs like “Home” and “Collarbones” took a single day to write while songs like “Undignified” and “Abigail” bordered on months. Despite the ups and downs, their Crowdfunding campaign succeeded and gave them the opportunity to write, record, produce and release Kingdoms.
After achieving that kind of substantial progress, Coopertheband are motivated to continue together through this journey that they’ve begun and spread their word to anyone who needs it.
“One of our main goals in writing the songs was to help others find joy and hope even in the midst of pain or suffering,” Brown said. “Our hope is that you can feel some sort of joy or hope after listening to this album. And if so, share it with your friends so hopefully they can too.”

Jenn Connor single release 2018 | Nouvelle musique par Jenn Connor sortira en 2018
LOS ANGELES, CA, December 26, 2017 — Toronto based pop artist Jenn Connor has made a career tapping into her emotions and turning them into sonic gold. With her latest single “Like I Did” Jenn explores the ups and downs of moving on from heartbreak, even if your partner doesn’t want to let go.
“Like I Did” celebrates the feeling of freedom after battling through a difficult relationship, and how to move on from the ex that doesn’t want to let go. Jenn’s powerful lyrics are brought to life by her emotional performance and accentuated with a catchy, uptempo danceable beat that pulsates with strength and builds a powerful, decisive chorus.
“Like I Did” was produced by multi-platinum, award-winning producer, Rob Wells and recorded in Toronto. Jenn and Shobha co-wrote the song. On January 8th, 2018 “Like I Did” will be available on iTunes, Spotify, Pandora, and all major music platforms.
Jenn started her career by posting her original songs online, which caught the attention of producer Tomas Costanza (2 Chainz, Boys Like Girls). Says Tomas of his time working with Jenn, “Jenn is a breath of fresh air in a business filled with musical sludge. She doesn’t carry any of the baggage of many of today’s young singers and is truly about the music first. Working with her is an absolute pleasure. She doesn’t worry about creating a product, she only concerns herself with making music she loves.” The praise doesn’t stop there, Clifton Murray of The Tenors says about Jenn, “A great look and fresh new sound, the whole package!”
Jenn is set to release an EP in 2018, she’s looking forward to announcing the release date. Until then, Jenn continues to write and record new music.

A Mini finance Guide For Indie Musicians
Written by Michelle Aguilar of the TuneCore Blog
Italian composer Claudio Monteverdi once said, “Music is spiritual. The music business is not.” Whether you’ve been in the industry for years or just starting out, there’s bound to be many bumps in the roads in terms of funding for your career as a musician and ultimately be able to make a living out of it. Hopefully this mini guide can spark new or more ideas to improve the financial facets of being an indie musician.
Set Automated Investments
Whenever you get a paycheck, use it to pay yourself first. Save it in an investment account and make sure to make this process automated. By doing this, you’re making it easier to keep up with your monthly savings. Surveys and research organizations such as Consolidated Credit suggest automated savings and it shouldn’t make you think twice as to why this is a smart idea.
According to President and CEO of Credit Financial Services Innovation, nearly half of Americans say their expenses are equal to or greater than their income and for those 18 to 25 years old, the percentage is over half, up to 54%. The key to keeping automatic investing affordable is to invest directly with a mutual fund company to avoid paying a trade commission each month. There are also some online brokers such as TD Ameritrade that offer hundreds of no-transaction-fee mutual funds in which you can automatically invest with no extra fees.
Put Your Money in a Smart Place
An IRA, or “individual retirement account” allows you huge tax savings on your investments. However, musicians, audio engineer and other creatives are recommended to set up a specific tax-free account called a Roth IRA. With this version, you put in after-tax dollars, and when you take the money out in the end, you don’t have to pay vany taxes on your returns. With ROA, you are set up to double your money every decade or so, just by keeping it in index funds. Essentially, a Roth ROA provides the benefits of a tax-sheltered retirement account and the flexibility to deal with unexpected costs.
Pay Off Credit Card Debt
Other than contributing to your retirement account, make sure to prioritize paying off your credit card debt above all other financial goals. Whether you’ve had a credit card for a while or not, it’s helpful to build a realistic outlook on credit cards. You can use them for both small or major purchases—but the quicker you pay them off, the quicker you build your credit. If you want to use a credit card to buy music or recording gear you can’t immediately afford, well, you don’t.
Credit cards should be used if you earn a decent amount already to be able to pay them back. An alternative for this is to purchase an instrument/equipment using a loan payment plan. Some manufacturers have leasing programs, so do your research before even thinking about using a loan or your credit card.
Create a Reasonable Budget
When you crate a budget, it allows you to think about your budget less. There is freedom in budgeting. To get started, track your spending for two-three months. There’s a fast and easy way to do this by using digital tools such as mint.com. It’s free, secure and it serves to help you create and track budgets, investments and goals. Once you type in your bank or credit card accounts you can track your past and current spending to see exactly where you’re at financially. By viewing your current spending, you’ll be better able to figure out where most of your spending should be taking place.
Start with a realistic appraisal of what you have been spending on average by category. Then make a budget that reflects this spending but with a slight modification that gears you towards when you want and need to spend on the most. Focus on cutting the things you don’t care about too much and preserving what you spend on the things you do care about.
Find Ways to Earn More Money
In order to do the things we love and to create the things that other people value, we must be able to sustain ourselves. How do we do that? By making more money. Once you start developing a smart and sustainable budget, there will come a point where you realize that you can’t cut your spending any further. Try any of the following tips to not only make more money in a way that makes it easier for your audience.
1. Use Social Media as a Means to Pay
Venmo is a free mobile payment service owned by Paypal which can be used as an app. Create your username and announce before, during, and/or after your show that you accept tips in the form of Venmo. You can even put a tip jar at your merch table with a big sign, “If you liked the show, show us how much! $ or Venmo: ____.”
2. Sync Licensing
Many independent musicians are making six figures a year by getting placed on TV shows, commercials and films. By allowing someone else to use your music you’re reaching a new audience that you probably weren’t even aware of and of course, licensing your music is one of the major ways to make extra revenue.
A sync license gives someone permission to synchronize your music with a visual medium like TV shows, advertisements, movies or video games. When you grant someone a sync license, you aren’t giving up your rights to that song away. You’re basically renting the rights to them for a specific use. You are the primary owner of the copyright however, and you can even license it for a different movie or advertisement if you choose.
3. Session Work
A ‘session musician’ performs a backing track for another musician while onstage or recording in a studio. As a musician, this shouldn’t be work too difficult to find, given that most musicians can play more than one instrument as well.
Do you know any musicians who are getting ready to record and need an extra hand? Do you know anyone who works at a studio? Are there any labels operating in your area? Offer your skills and take on a new project. If not, put yourself out there, whether it’s on Craigslist, social media or other digital/non-digital platforms.
Financial literacy is vital for everyone, especially for entrepreneurs. As soon as you get paid for a gig of any sort, it’s important to be mindful of how you’re going to preserve, sustain and increase that income. Your journey as a musician doesn’t have to simulate the “starving artist” lifestyle. So get your financial thinking caps on!

Current State of R&B
Written by Earl Powell from www.eptonemusic.com
Happy Music Day (everyday is music day)!
You know how some songs just never get old? They always sound just as good as the 1st time you heard em.
I was listening to music the other day (still a student of my craft), and I heard a song called “Made For Love” by Charlie Wilson ft. Lalah Hathaway. They seem like such an unlikely pair…like, their names (as a duo) would not immediately roll off your tongue, but they truly did their thing…I was immediately inspired! Serious kudos to the production team on that joint!!!
The melody of this song hit me so hard it nearly brought me to tears as I listened. And as a sidebar, I have to say it’s refreshing to hear real R&B (respect going out some of the other recent fire projects that I’ve heard as well – Joe, Avant, and Bruno Mars to name a few). Hearing this song compelled me to share a couple of tips for artists, and they are:
As an artist, your music has to come from a real place to reach a real place with your listeners. The songs you sing should strike a chord – pun intended!
A key element in many killer R&B songs is when the melody pierces your soul before you even hear the first word. This can make the difference between a song that’s a hit for now and a song that’s a hit forever.
I know it sounds elementary, but creating songs with these elements of realness and amazing melodies is not as simple as it sounds. Your producer plays a key role in pulling it out of you. I could share so many stories of my clients’ songs coming from real true experiences shared in conversation, then the next thing they knew, their story was playing out in the song. When I write for my clients, (and when they trust me, instead of trying to show me everything that they know), this is a natural progression. Many of the songs that have resulted from these times are songs that have either been placed on major artists or that are still getting airplay right now, including new Urban AC banger “One Way Street” by music legend Tito Jackson, which just hit Billboard. This song came from an authentic conversation with Tito, and it’s resonating with fans, as they groove with it.
But with that said, it brings me to just one more tip (and perhaps the most important one…)
Trust your producer, and if you don’t, find one that you CAN trust!!!! The chemistry (or lack thereof) will play out in the music.
I gotta go but make the fact that I shared this with you worth your while and go make some heat! Share it with me even!
As always, feel free to reach out for help with your recording project, and please pass this on to anyone you know who could use the info. Much love, til next time.
As an artist, your music has to cord. This can make the difference between a song that’s a hit for now and a song that’s a hit forever.

Article by: Jeannie Reid
Andrea Morris, of AM to FM Promotions, has worked in the music industry in the US, UK and Canada. Her career started as a radio personality in Jacksonville, North Carolina. She quickly moved from the midnight shift to mid-days and the job of music director. It was the first of several music director positions she held.
Andrea left the music industry for five years when she moved to Los Angeles to work in market research. Her move to England brought her back into the world of music. She lived in Manchester during the heyday of the Hacienda and the Manchester music scene. During that time, Andrea hosted a late night radio show on Picadilly Key 103. Stints at a few other stations followed, and then it was time to return to her home country, the US.
She moved to her home town, Cleveland, Ohio, and took a position as the afternoon drive announcer and music director on WNWV. Needless to say, she reestablished valuable industry contacts, which eventually led to her being offered the job as regional radio promotions manager for IRS Records. She also worked for Discovery and Sire Records before moving to Canada.
Her first gig in Toronto was not at a label, but at MIX 99.9 as a fill-in announcer. She left there for the Ontario promo job at SONG Corp, and then became the national director of promotions for the company. She also held that position at Linus Records.
In 2004, Andrea decided to put her knowledge and contacts to work for herself and launched AM to FM Promotions, a full service, independent radio promotions company. While the primary focus of the company is radio promotion, clients have also been provided with international label contacts and tour promotion.
Andrea’s years as a music director makes her a natural promo person, as she has a keen understanding of what life is like on “the other side.” She knows how to get the job done, and has a track record to prove it.

Jade Mya: Album Release Showcase
Jade Mya, is not your girl next door, this Canadian country musician is taking the industry by storm and is set to launch her debut full length album, Heartbreak Country, on August 11. Partnered with renowned musical producer and songwriter who has collaborated with Hollywood talent such as Justin Bieber, Johnny Reid, Chantal Kreviazuk, Divine Brown and Tyga, Douglas Romanow of Noble Street Studio, produced and co-wrote the album, along with Corey Congilio and Benita Hill. A stunning new voice in the Canadian Country Music Industry, her music is inspired by old country sounds, channeling the unique fire and rebellion of Johnny Cash, and the power and seductive confidence of Dolly Parton. With her music’s heart-felt traditional country folk style as well as her edgy girl twist, Heartbreak Country connects her to young fans home and abroad.
Her latest single, Lies Of The Lonely, is available on iTunes and is currently being played across Canada including KG Country of Red Deer, AB, CFQX/QX104 of Winnipeg, MB and CJWW of Saskatoon, SK.
“Heartbreak Country was inspired simply from a broken heart,” says Mya. “It’s where country music originates from, not the beer drinkin’ and partyin’ but the sad honest relatable love stories.”
Mya has crafted a unique persona that is not the traditional country singer, rebelling from the country norm, while still keeping to her edgy twist of not your girl next door.
Track List: 1. Lies of The Lonely 2. Telescope 3. Loving Him is Killing You 4. Another Thing Coming 5.This Love Ain’t Big Enough 6. Stronger Than Me 7. Make Lightning
