Lori Cooper was singing at age two and playing piano at age six. She continued on as a classically trained pianist to complete a B.Mus and B.Mus. Ed. from Memorial University’s School of Music in 1987.

Through the encouragement of fellow musicians Lori put teaching on hold and chose a life of rock & roll. As keyboardist for Thomas Trio & the Red Albino, Lori toured extensively and even competed in a World Talent Competition located in Tokyo representing Canada in front of 13,000 people. In 1991 she gave up life on the road and returned to teaching at Take Note Music school where she is still school manager today!

Lori leads her own band aptly named The Lori Cooper Band. Made up of some of St. John’s finest musicians, they fill the dance floor at the Fat Cat Blues Bar on a regular basis. Their 2005 release No Mustang Sally was nominated for MUSICNL best blues recording and was voted number three in the Blind Lemon top twenty blues recordings for 2006. Loris zest for life, jubilant spirit and deep love for singing the blues comes through in every song and affects every member of her audience.
