Caddy Cooper is a West Australian acoustic blues, country and folk singer/songwriter and a traveling soul at heart.
After training at the West Australian Academy of Performing Arts in Music Theatre, Caddy played featured roles in musicals such as The Sound of Music, Fiddler on the Roof and A ChorusLine.
Caddy has performed in major theatres across the UK, Ireland and Australia and for the likes of Sir Richard Attenborough, Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Cornwall, the West Australian Agent General Kerry Sanderson and a number of BBC television personalities.
She was the lyricist and composer behind Australian pop sensation ‘ENVY’s singles Fever Fever Fever and Monster in Me and was awarded a prestigious Honourable Mention in the International Song of the Year Competition for her urban composition Tender Heart (Teenage Girl) in 2012.
In March 2012, Caddy published the first of a series of children's sign language songbooks called 'Sign & Song' (short-listed for the Rhinegold Publishing 'Best New Resource' Award 2013) which incorporates the use of Makaton signing in a bid to encourage language development and cohesion between children in the mainstream, those with English as a second language and children and young adults with special needs.
Caddy released ‘Acoustic EP’ in 2011 which quickly gained momentum and led to the international release of Caddy's debut album, 'Snapshot'. After touring nine countries in 2014 (including UK tour and festivals tour, a British military tour in Afghanistan, Australia, and across Europe - to name a few highlights) promoting the critically acclaimed 'Snapshot', Caddy released her next album 'Outside the Wire' on March 6th, 2015 at Club WM, The O2, London.
Outside the Wire (arguably the most successful of Caddy's releases so far) has exploded onto the Country and Blues scenes to rave FIVE STAR reviews- some examples of which can be seen on the homepage.
Caddy will continue to tour internationally in 2015 to promote Outside the Wire as a solo show and with her band.
At this point, Caddy is keeping the release of her eagerly anticipated LIVE EP very close to her chest so watch this space!!
