I felt like it was a sign that after a really bad day where so many things just weren’t going right (I had some musical equipment stolen – despite being protected by security guards in London!?), I literally bumped into JP Cooper at Paddington station.
He was kind, commiserated with me and told me his story. He’s been a singer/songwriter since he was 16, and signed his first deal at 30. He made my day and changed my whole outlook on my situation. If you haven’t already heard his haunting and powerful voice then you should find his music and buy it immediately. What a guy! X
