Pop-Soul singer, Cooper Phillip, recently released a new single entitled “Perfectly Original”, a soulful, emotive track all about rediscovering yourself and letting go of the criticisms and doubts that hold you back. Phillip is also known as an Instagram influencer with her empowering anthems going viral on Spotify and YouTube, receiving over 15 million streams to date.
Phillip’s music has a strong sense of strength, grace, and empowerment running through it. “I believe we underestimate ourselves often and our fear takes over. My goal is to show people they are stronger and can do much more than they think they can”, Phillips states. Using true-life stories, hardships, and experiences, the songwriter emits authenticity and courage throughout her music.
“Not Perfect,” “Head Over Heels,” “Thank You Heartbreak,” and “Silence,” to mention a few, are among Phillip’s other famous releases. Phillip’s artistic profile offers a broad variety of listening experiences, whether listeners are seeking an uplifting tempo with messages of self-empowerment and self-love, or slower tracks loaded with genuine emotion and genuine grief.
Born in a small town in Russia to a family of accomplished classical musicians, her early years were shaped by being raised by her grandmother and aunt while her mother, a master violin player, toured around the world with various symphonies. Phillip’s upbringing drove her to seek solace in music, particularly Ella Fitzgerald’s vocal styling. Phillip learned Fitzgerald’s songs by heart, paying close attention to every nuance of phrasing and jazz intonations. Phillip studied classical piano, music theory, harp, jazz, blues, ballet, and voice at the famed Moscow State Classical Academy. The songstress worked diligently to expand her vocal range and control, taking every challenge in stride and feeding creatively from them.
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 17 years old. With barely a dollar to her name, the singer worked and hustled, performing in weddings and clubs and sleeping in the storeroom of a restaurant where she sang. It wasn’t easy but it would not deter her. After a few years in the city, Phillip jumped at an opportunity to sing at an important gig in Los Angeles. She never went back.
Phillips continues to carve her way to the top of her genre in the music industry, thanks to her fierce enthusiasm, exquisite vocals, and relatable lyrics. Keep an eye out for Cooper Phillips, as she will undoubtedly rise through the ranks!
