Your name: 
Ash Cooper.

Where are you from? 
UK - based in and around the Midlands.

Name of band:
Ash Cooper Band.

Who else is in your band? 
Alex Levanthal, Peter Bailey and Neil Martin.

How would you describe yourselves? 
We are a modern country band, favouring the rockier stuff.

What do you hope to achieve in music? 
I would love to write a hit song.

What has been the highlight of your career so far, and why? 
Being awarded "one to watch" on the Nashville Songwriters Association International (NSAI) monthly round up on three separate occasions!!

And what’s the moment you want to forget? 
Ha ha....none of them! Even the embarrassing moments are priceless!

If you had to pick just one of your songs to represent your music, what would it be and why? 
A song called Good For You is my personal favourite. I have borrowed some descriptions of places in the song, but essentially it's a tune about being more at home out in the open countryside than in the big city....and it's also got a great groove to it; it's a lot of fun to play live!

Where can we listen to it?
You'll have to come and watch a show!! Sorry, we've not yet recorded it, but we are working on it!

Where can we find out more about your music?
Anything else you’d like to say about your band/music that I forgot to ask? 
Just that I am always on the look-out for a co-write session. I love to bounce ideas around with people and see where they go.....
