JP Cooper, Mike Bethel, John Paul Villafrati FREE
Hailing from Middleton, North Manchester, playing a blend of folk, blues, soul and gospel JP Cooper is an intriguing prospect amongst aspiring British singer/songwriters Listening to him perform, either alone or with his band, bears witness to an honesty, intensity and power evoked via the simplest of orchestration. His soulfully expressive unique vocal style, the kind that cuts through a room to hush a chattering crowd in seconds, is utterly bewitching.
Over the last year JP has recorded and self-released two EPs with nothing more than a few battered microphones and some aged recording equipment. This home-crafted approach is beginning to payoff. Selling out of over 500 copies of his bedroom recordings JP is currently recording his third EP, complete with full backing band and gospel singers.
Legendary Birmingham-born guitarist and singer-songwriter Mike Bethel performs a selection of beautifully crafted and emotionally engaging songs which will take your breath away! Unmissable! "A wondrous performer that seduces the audience with song" - Rhythm & Booze
Influenced by sonic troubadours of the past and present John Paul Villafrati weaves tales of adventure, love, loss, hope and redemption into songs that are bursting with heartfelt melodies and an enchanting lyricism that captures his unique voice.
For the past year John Paul has been travelling around the UK and Europe penning songs for his debut album, ‘Medicine for Loneliness’ with the help and stewardship of producer and musician, Chis Tye and Vijay Kishure.
