DAVID O COOPER MUSIC

David embarked in a new direction of personal creative development that he has dreamed of for years... Songwriting. Prior to his formal career start in 1980, David's initial songwriting began in high school and college. Though that dream was put on hold with the start of his studio work and career choices over the decades that followed, his one dream that has persisted throughout his life has always been to write songs.
