Ladies and Gentlemen so excited to step things up with Keith Cooper on the Podcast. Keith managed the Brit Award winning Finley Quaye when the multi platinum selling album 'Maverick A Strike' was released which had multiple hit singles on it including 'Sunday Shining' and 'Even After All'. He also managed Cut Chemist from Jurassic 5, legendary Drum n Bass Producer Aphrodite which meant bringing us the era defining 'Aphrodite' album, as well as Ian Brown of the Stone Roses. Furthermore, he managed the Multi Platinum selling Stereo MCs for over 13 years seeing them through record breaking sales and 2 Brit Awards, and huge tours. Then on top of that he also managed PM Dawn again Multi Platinum sales and Brit Awards. Then also for management there was also the Jungle Brothers, Just Jack, Scribz Riley, Aaradhna & Joe Fox. Truth & Soul are currently a producer duo who he is excited to be managing who have co written tracks for Adele on her multi platinum selling album, and is also responsible for Aloe Blacc & music supervision & production on Red Dead Redemption. If this was not enough he also ran a publishing company that held/hold the worldwide rights for publishing of material by Finlay Quaye, Jurassic 5, Aphrodite, Ian Brown, Just Jack, Truth & Soul and Adele.
On top of this Keith is now a qualified Psychotherapist, having completed an MA in Psychotherapy, he has a private practice as well as continuing management and publishing in music.
This was a gripping conversation where we really went under the hood and spoke about human behaviour in the music industry. I also ended up exposing some of my recent behaviour and ended up having some counselling from Keith and we deconstruct where those behaviours were coming from. I think this conversation is a gift to any aspiring musician, pro musician or aspiring or music industry pro.
