Join us for Dana Cooper’s return to the Cactus Café to celebrate the release of his new CD “I Can Face The Truth.” The acclaimed Singer/Songwriter will be performing many of his new songs as well as old favorites.

Cooper’s lifelong passion & devotion to music began at age 2 in Kansas City. His father, George, was a huge influence. One of Dana’s earliest memories is of his father taking him to the Calico Cat, popping a coin in the jukebox and listening to Dana sing along with Hank Williams & Ernest Tubb. At age 20, a move to LA resulted in a record deal with Elektra Records where he recorded his first album with members of “The Section” Russ Kunkel and Leleand Sklar, as well as other luminary players Jim Horn, Al Perkins, Jim Gordon, Joe Osborne, and Lee Holdridge. This album still wins accolades today and was recently reissued on the Warner/Japan label. After several years in California and a year recording in Seattle, Cooper moved to Texas where he wrote and performed with Shake Russell. They released several independent albums and one album for Southcoast/MCA. Dana formed his own experimental bands DC3, and Nuclear Family and released his first solo project “Complicated Stuff”. In 1988 he moved to Nashville, TN to pursue his songwriting career collaborating with other songwriters.

With his upcoming CD “I Can Face the Truth” Cooper faces hard truths head on with humor and heartfelt expression. Joining forces with Co-Producer and multi-instrumentalist Dave Coleman, the two enlisted some of the best songwriters, singers, and musicians from the US and Ireland. Collaborators in the studio include Tom Kimmel, Kim Richey, Jonell Mosser, Maura O’Connell, Brother Paul Brown, David Starr, and Gillian Tuite.
