It’s often said that today’s musicians don’t “pay their dues” in the way previous generations did, whether it was the Beatles’ residencies at the Star Club in Hamburg or David Bowie hauling himself around clubs for years. However, JP Cooper has done all this and much more. He may now be scoring multi-platinum hits and collaborating with the likes of Stormzy. However, He’s been the guy standing outside a venue, handing out flyers for his music and tracks on burned CDs. He’s humped gear into the back of his Dad’s Nissan Micra to drive 200 miles to play for 20 people, a sound engineer and his dog.
