Patrick Cooper, a singer/songwriter from New Orleans, Louisiana (by way of Shreveport, Baton Rouge and Santa Cruz, California) has released his new CD, “Gris Gris In Your Face” (pronounced “Gree Gree”). Cooper’s material is in the acoustic roots blues, rock, country and folk vein (Americana Music). The new album consists of thirteen songs that he either wrote solely (nine) or co-wrote (four). New Orleans musicians joining him in featured roles on the album are Frenchmen Street regular Andy J Forest (Washboard Chaz Blues Trio, Andy J Forest Band) on harmonica and multi instrumentalist Dwight Breland (Kim Carson Band, Late As Usual Band) on acoustic lead guitar, dobro and pedal steel guitar.

Cooper plays acoustic guitar and sings lead and harmony vocals. In some songs the listener may hear a Ricky Nelson/Everly Brothers influence. In others, a more back porch Blues/Swamp Pop style. The album was recorded, engineered, mixed and mastered by Lu Rojas at Oak Street Recording in New Orleans. Lu has worked with Allen Toussaint, John Fohl and Anders Osborne, among others.
