The singer and songwriter internationally known as Davis Cooper has released his flagship inspirational single, “Jesus.” The track has been proudly published as an independent single outside the control of the corporate music industry. Mellow, uplifting and unerringly true to the Christian tradition, “Jesus” is a track showcasing Davis Cooper's musical intuition and earnest spiritual depth as both a writer and performer.
Toronto, Canada's Davis Cooper cites as main artistic influences Led Zeppelin, the Rolling Stones, and Jimi Hendrix, as well as those he refers to as “the great classical musicians of long ago.” The common elements of these are most present in Cooper's 25-song LP record which is available for streaming online, but his “Jesus” single remains the track for which he is best known and most loudly lauded.
Published in its definitive form in 2013, the single has remained popular and prominent since that time though it has always been a download-only offering. Cooper himself calls it his proudest work to date.
“This is a very precious song for me,” Cooper writes. “It was largely inspired after a very difficult period in my life.”
The religious aspect of the song stands out as its most compelling feature in spite of beautifully minimalist chord progressions and unassuming folk-rock vocals by Cooper. With careful and deliberate lyrics Davis Cooper narrates the story of Jesus Christ in poetic, yet simple language which paints familiar imagery in a way that is fresh and new.
Fans of artists like Elton John will appreciate the elegant piano playing and pop-minded, infectious music structures, while listeners of Bob Dylan will hear a similarly heartfelt tenor in Cooper's words and vocal performance. Longtime music aficionados are certain to note the live aspect of his “Jesus” studio recording. Hearing the song is a very close experience to being in the room as the artist plays, one which is palpable and in some ways the song's best feature – a trait many musicians and producers attempt to create which can never, ever be imitated.
All in all, Davis Cooper's “Jesus” is a track which Christians and fans of great songwriting should hear at their earliest convenience.
“Jesus” by Davis Cooper is available at over 700 digital music stores online worldwide now.
