Following on from a sold-out UK tour and supporting soul singer Angie Stone in 2014, JP Cooper returns with When the Darkness Comes EP. The 4-song project explores a journey of love, longing and loss – and you can listen to it on Telegraph.co.uk. Combining folk, blues, soul and gospel, this follow-up to Keep the Quiet Out showcases Cooper’s talent for both songwriting and lyricism which releases true emotion – not only for himself but also the listener. This Cooper particularly shows in the EP’s title track, When the Darkness Comes, which discusses the need to escape reality and gain clarity from the silence of darkness, and the breathtaking Satellite.

Hailed as a Future Sound of 2015, the dreadlocked, blue-eyed singer-songwriter from Middleton, north Manchester, is touring again, with five dates in London and a coveted slot at the SXSW Festival in Austin, Texas. Influenced by Donnie Hathaway, Bill Rivers and Stevie Wonder, Cooper was also a singer with Manchester's finest gospel choir, The Manchester Sing Out Choir.
