Here’s a last minute idea for you… Come to The Carleton on Friday, July 10th at 9 PM to see sensational new Aussie artist Hein Cooper play a “pay what you can – pass the hat” surprise set! Hein’s on his way to play this weekend’s Evolve Festival and decided (rather than sitting in his hotel room) to find a stage and that stage will be ours. Do yourself a favour, this guy is on his way up, up, up.
This show will be a treat and well worth your time and attention. We don’t have much time to get the word out so tell your friends and be prepared to show your appreciation with a few dollars to support this artist who is a long way from home!
Here’s the bio skinny…
Hein Cooper is an Australian indie musician and songwriter from Milton, New South Wales.
In 2013 he was discovered performing in a small bar in Sydney by Franz Schuller, manager of Half Moon Run.
Hein was invited to write and demo his songs in Montreal, Canada, where he was then signed to Indica Records. After returning to Australia to continue developing his sound, he headed back to Montreal in 2014 and recorded his debut self-titled EP with producer Marcus Paquin (Arcade Fire, The National, The Local Natives, Hey Rosetta). He performed at Canadian Music Week in Toronto, festivals in his native Australia, and released his debut EP in Australia and Canada in April 2015.
