Stephen cooper is a Dublin native whose musical journey has seen him come and go between Ireland and Scandinavia, mainly writing songs and music for film and television.
Having paid his dues as a member of various rock bands over the years, Stephen began ‘Fly the Nest’ as a means to stay true to his own creative vision. A solo project in the truest sense of the word,
Fly the nest has earned substantial critical praise and radio play with his singles ‘Borrowed Time’, ‘Superhuman’,’Animal’, ‘One In A Million’ and ‘Wild Ride’.
Fly The Nest’s silky instrumentals are masterfully crafted and are perfectly complemented by Cooper’s poetic lyrics, which are the lifeblood of this project. His songs are lathered with affirmative and grounded words that celebrate the ordinary while encouraging the extraordinary.
In a business where artists are often more concerned with frontage, and would rather cultivate an image rather than nurture a sound, Fly The Nest is unafraid to engage with his vulnerable side
and is pleasingly willing, to be frank, and emotional. The resulting polaroids of day-to-day themes are relatable and inviting. At a time when every-day life has become warped to the point of being
barely recognizable, these reminders of the simpler things are more than welcome.
It’s also good to know that Stephen Cooper is a man who not only talks the talk but walks the walk. Releasing his single ‘Superhuman’ in an effort to raise money for the ‘Ireland Thanks You’
campaign in aid of frontline workers, this is an artist who wears his heart on his sleeve and has an admirable social conscience to boot.
On his latest single Be Mine, Fly The Nest offers up an ode to love and commitment which is genuine in its sincerity and intense in its conviction. It’s the type of song which could easily
become a staple on Irish radio and is sure to further springboard Fly The Nest to new heights.
