Matt ‘Black’ Cooper
Matt has been playing guitar since the age of 12, keyboards since 8, and singing since he was 15. Starting in pub bands playing various covers and original material he eventually moved into clubs performing classic rock with the likes of “Vertego” & “Stagefright”. After performing at Dez Bailey’s 50th (from MTV’s The Bailey Brothers) Matt was noticed by the backing band (Jamie Mallender & Danny Needham) of ex Black Sabbath Vocalist Tony Martin, they asked him to take part in an original project named Oskura which featured the lead guitarist from Nazareth & Sensational Alex Harvey Band, Zal Cleminson.
Matt currently performs across the UK with tribute act “A Foreigner’s Journey”. He is a keen writer who lets energy and emotion into his songs and takes this to the stage with confidence and loves to get involved with his audience.
