SO GLAD YOU’RE HERE, COOPER! CAN YOU TELL US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT YOURSELF, WHO IS COOPER PHILLIP IN YOUR OWN WORDS?
Hi. Thanks for having me today I’m really excited for the interview. I am a musician in my mind and dreamer in my heart. I was born raised in a small town in Russia and surrounded by classical music since my early years. I love dancing and started ballet. When I was 10 years old I heard Mariah Carey and fell in love with her voice and decided to become a singer. When I was 19 I decided to change my life and move to the United States and start my life from scratch, here I am.
WHAT ASPECT OF MUSIC INTERESTS YOU THE MOST (WRITING / PERFORMING / ETC), AND CONVERSELY, WHAT INTERESTS YOU THE LEAST?
I love performing and singing. I grew up at the era of divas and singing was my main focus from the beginning. I didn’t know how to read music and I was afraid to express myself because I didn’t think I could compose. And then I started writing and it became my most honest area of creativity. I absolutely love collaborating with other writers and tell me stories through my music.
WHAT TRACK HAVE YOU BEEN LISTENING RECENTLY?
I listen to a lot of different genres. Right now I’m listening to a lot of classic rnb and gospel.
IF YOU WERE NOT A SINGER?
There’s no way ))))
YOU ARE POPULAR ON SOCIAL MEDIA, WHAT IS THAT ONE THING THAT YOU ALWAYS KEEP IN YOUR MIND WHILE PREPARING YOUR CONTENT FOR INSTAGRAM?
Authenticity. Honesty. I can not lie to your fans.
I LOVE YOUR INSTAGRAM PROFILE, WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE INSTAGRAM PICTURE ON YOUR FEED?
Thank you. I honestly love them all
WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE SOMEONE WHO WANTS TO BE A SOLO PERFORMING ARTIST?
Do it. Don’t overthink it. Keep pushing. Create
