Check out ocooper.com A WHOLE NEW ERA Behind Gates Entertainment is proud to present, the debut CD and the first Solo release of Otis Cooper, formerly with Grammy Award winning producer Rafael Saddiq's group Otis and Shugg. 'O Cooper' the album, blends an incredible variety of styles in 12 new songs produced by T. Hatter for Behind Gates Entertainment (firstname.lastname@example.org) Cooper's extensive experience as a vocalist and dexterity on keyboards keeps him in demand in the Bay Area music scene. He has lent his many talents to projects by such notable and diverse artists as Boz Scaggs, Tony, Toni, Tone. E-40 and Too Short. He and his partner Shugg had the distinction of being invited to perform at the 1st Annual Hip Hop Awards held at the historic Apollo Theater in New York City. His work has also been included in several soundtracks including the 1998 Woo soundtrack as well as the critically acclaimed Blue Hill Avenue. The ultra smooth sound of the instant classic 'Miss You' or the innocent joy of the well known standard 'Sunshine' will immediately engage every listener. An interpretation of Bob James's Theme from Taxi takes on a fresh sound with soulful lyrics in 'Baby I Love You' and the hit 'O Life' featuring Hip-Hop Mogul E-40 is a nostalgic commentary on the decline of community values. His commitment to family values is evident in the track 'Marry U' which tells us as long as we keep God first in our lives, we can have it all. This mellow love song is destined to become the premier wedding song for years to come. O. Cooper keeps himself grounded by regularly accompanying his childhood choir as the Music Director of his local church and volunteering his talents to his children's school productions.
