"He has a Harry Chapin/Harry Nilsson-esque voice -- kind of gritty and bluesy. He plays his tunes with an earnest energy – story songs about life in the city, burning the candles at both ends, hard times, love songs, and people who need to improve their character." The Significato Journal, Kimmy Sophia Brown, October 31, 2013.
"With story songs that reference
local history, as in 'Holly Beach', and jovially friendly love songs,
such as 'Courtesy of Valerie', it's easy to see what has made
Singer-Songwriter and Shreveport-native Patrick Cooper much liked." Offbeat Magazine, November, 2013.
