This video features JP Cooper’s steamy, siren voice parading his vocal genius and is sure to melt your heart to sloppy mush. In a good way of coarse.
A three-man ensemble is stool-stooped in a circle on a comfy, quaint porch. There, they perform a four minute act of YES LAWD; one cradling a cello, one with a violin snug beneath her chin, and another with an acoustic guitar nursed on his knee.
Lowered just above the maple shoulders of the guitar, are the mahogany dreads of a tender-voiced JP Cooper, hat and all.
The group begins their piece with JP’s voice hovering over some rich acoustic chords, as the camera sweeps from a lone flower to a pair of boots resting at the end of the porch.
A shoeless Cooper then builds upon his own sounds and, with a soft tumble, cascades into the chorus, joined by the two others.
JP’s voice erupts over a thick chowder of steady cello, by Ben Cashell, and a warm wisp of violin, by Tanah Stevens. The result is a light and breezy tune with a powerful message pushing behind it. “The only God gave me hands was to hold you/ the only reason God gave me ears was to hear your voice.”
