I’ve played in many bands and backed many artists, but this "Old Man Winter" single is the first release of my own music! Cam Tarnas created the video by compiling vintage, public domain footage of winter scenes. Many thanks to the Double Phelix crew for backing me up: Graham Parsons, Adam Danis, Tod Kloosterman and Andy Catlin. Thanks to Ben Lau and Corey DeRushia for engineering. And thanks to my own trumpeteer father Brandon Cooper (The Great Brandini) for letting me boss him around in the studio. Here's to releasing more solo music in the coming new year, which you can follow at this new Facebook Artist page: Samantha Cooper
Please consider purchasing this tune via Bandcamp, and sharing the video!
