Born in a small town in Russia to a family of accomplished classical musicians, her early years were shaped being raised by her grandmother and aunt while her mother, a master violin player, toured around the world with various symphonies.
This separation led Cooper to take comfort in music where she was enamoured by the vocal stylings of Ella Fitzgerald. At a young age, she taught herself Fitzgerald’s songs inside and out and eventually enrolled at the prestigious Moscow State Classical Academy where she studied classical piano, music theory, harp, jazz, blues, ballet and voice. The songstress worked diligently to expand her vocal range and control, taking everything that came in her path and feeding off of the challenge.
Recognizing her daughter’s talent and charisma, Phillip’s mother gave up her flourishing career to accompany a young Cooper on tour throughout Russia. Determined to pursue an international career in music, Phillip moved to New York City at the age of 17 working hard and hustling, performing in weddings and clubs and sleeping in the storeroom of a restaurant where she sang. It wasn’t easy but she would not be deterred. After a few years in the city, she jumped at an opportunity to sing at an important gig in Los Angeles. She never went back.
Cooper Phillip's music features an underlying theme of strength, grace and empowerment.
"I believe we underestimate ourselves often and our fear takes over. My goal is to show people that they are stronger and can do much more than they think they can”
Using true life stories, hardships and experiences, the songwriter emits authenticity and courage throughout her music.
