Samantha Cooper’s voice is a gentle force. Her songs speak for their sound; from contemplative respites to keen PSA’s.
Her Great Grandpa Orlie was once a dance fiddler like she is now. Her Oma & Opa’s voices are her favorite in a clan of family singers, and her father is a jazz trumpeter (Lunar Octet).
Sam is a white, queer musician living on unceded Anishinaabe territory (MI).
She became one of over 1000 defendants in the stop line 3 struggle this past summer.
Her latest video single is a love note to the rights of manoomin, "Let The Wave (feat. Shara Nova, Jaike Spotted Wolf, Holly T. Bird & Frank Bibeau)."
Additional releases include The Sound of Lasso by The Lasso, Voyager by Maraj, The Right Hands Round by The Bowhunter Stringband and four solo video singles: Snowsuit, The Most Wonderful Time and Old Man Winter.
