There is a doubtless conviction to the words written and sung by Shane Cooley. His poetry serves up a slice of life that is equally beautiful and truthful. His lyrics are laced with music that gracefully borrows from folk, blues and rock n roll. Cooley has earned his battle scars from years of touring the United States and Europe, independent and self-managed. Originally from rural Virginia, the 26-year-old singer/songwriter now resides in the music Mecca of Austin, Texas, where he is quickly gaining momentum.
Cooley's prolific writing is only matched by his persistence as an artist. After graduating from the College of William and Mary in 2010, he has almost constantly been on the road, honing his skills and making impressions. His music has been recognized by contests such as the International Acoustic Music Awards (two time runner-up), Mountain Stage NewSong Contest, and many others. He has showcased unofficially for the USA Songwriting Contest at South By Southwest, and sang on stage with Parachute (Mercury Records). His music can been found on over 300 iHeartRadio websites. He also regularly releases music, including 2013's country EP, The Green Porch Sessions, which is a collaborative effort with Richmond artist Paulo Franco, and 2012's confessional When It Rains, It Pours.
