The Singer-songwriter discusses the ’90s ‘Madchester’ scene for Original Penguin’s #PluggedIn60 series.

Some artists have a knack of connecting to raw human emotion. From writing hushed lullabies to bubble-gum pop and punk music, reaching out to the public on an emotional level is a key dimension for modern music and musicians. This trait is undeniably found at the very centre of JP Cooper‘s rich, indie-folk sound.

The dreadlocked Mancunian’s inescapable charm and songwriting breadth is one of the reasons why Original Penguin wanted him to feature on their #PluggedIn60 series. Taking time out of his busy, sell-out schedule, Original Penguin caught up Cooper to talk about the influence of 1990s Brit-pop, fashion and Manchester bands like Oasis, whereby he opens up about the decade that made him “fall in love with music.” You can watch the video here:
