TY COOPER: Known for her rich, classically trained voice, powerful stage presence and dedicated professionalism, Ty Cooper is, as the Las Vegas Times has called her, “the real deal”. Her impeccable showmanship and an easy command of jazz, sultry blues and sizzling swing styles, all wrapped up in flash and sass, guarantee a full house wherever Cooper graces the stage.

Cooper began her career singing in the choir of ‘The Mikado’ where she caught the eye of Jacquelin de Lusigan, featured mezzo-soprano at the Belle Artes of Mexico City. Singled out for individual training, Cooper dedicated the next 3 years to unique technique development sessions with Lusignan. Cooper went on to sing as Mrs Peachum in ‘Mack the Knife’ and Oom Pah Pah (specifically written to feature her). On going theatre work which brought discipline to her voice and expanse to her stage presence. Cooper, however, found herself drawn inexorably toward jazz and blues. With the determination and confidence she is so well known for, Cooper performed on stages large and small across the globe, growing her repertoire and developing the rich quality and range that is her signature. .

A global performer, Cooper has sung in locales as varied as Caesar’s in Las Vegas, Chicago’s legendary Green Mill, Caveau de la Huchette (the oldest jazz club in Paris), and the opulent Wynn Hotel in Dubai. She has led multiple productions and bands, including Swing & Strings, Ty and the Wild Women Jazz Band, and The JazzShowcase with Shelly Yoelin Big Band, Close Encounterscwith Richie Cole, to name a few. She has also shared billing with legendary performers such as Taj Mahal, Stan Getz, Jeff Hamilton, Ray Brown and many other jazz greats. Recently, Cooper was named as a ‘We Dream in Color’ honoree, receiving the Josephine Baker’ Faith’ Award in 2014. This award is given to people who strive to do humanitarian works throughout Chicago.
