Bio

Nineteen year old musician, Kooper Jodoin, is a prodigy. A raw talent who writes and produces his own music. He is a skilled guitarist with big dreams. He wants to attend the Berklee College of Music and one day be a famous guitarist like his idol, Steve Vai. Kooper has been wowing people, since the age of 12, with his melodic rock and shredding skills. He has a wide range of playing styles. His favorite genre is hard rock and heavy metal, and although he grew up listening to the hair metal bands of the 80s, he was also exposed to classical, jazz, and the blues. He is a serious student of rock history and enjoys the music of all the great guitarists of rock and roll. Even though rock and roll is his main genre, he has a wide range of playing styles. His guitar of choice is Ibanez. His credentials include performing at Roanokes Festival in the Park and Floyd fest. He was also a finalist in Steve Vais Best in Shred contest in 2013 and he had a guest appearance on Cox Channel 9s television show, Deet & the Geek. The Staunton River graduate is extremely talented and he wants to use his talent for good. One of his endeavors is to raise money for charities. He and his band-mates, Sam Byrd, Allen Sizemore, and Michael Jodoin, are currently putting together a benefit concert to raise money for St. Jude Childrens Research Hospital. He is also donating a portion of the proceeds from his music and merchandise sales to St. Judes. He just released his first CD, The DISFIGURATION COMBINATION Zone this past January. Every track consists of music that he composed. I write music in my head before I play, Jodoin said. Kooper describes his compositions as compulsive. Its kind of hard, melodic rock, he said, going on to say that its hard rock, but not heavy metal. For every copy sold, St. Judes will get $1.00. Fifty percent of the proceeds from his t-shirt sales and music downloads will go to St. Judes as well.
In addition to St. Judes, Kooper is planning a Bullying Awareness concert, as well as a Toys for Tots concert later on this year. He is also donating fifty percent of his music downloads from Reverbnation to the Fender Music Foundation.
