"Peter Cooper looks at the world with an artist's eye and a human heart and soul. His songs are the work of an original, creative imagination, alive with humor and heartbreak and irony and intelligence, with truth and beauty in the details. Deep stuff. And they get better every time you listen to them." -Kris Kristofferson
Mission Door is the debut album from Peter Cooper, a songwriter from East Nashville, Tennessee. It's an incredible collection, and it's Cooper's first. And it's the work of a man who's spent the better part of his adult life as a music writer and critic for The Tennessean newspaper, Esquire , No Depression , Mix magazine, and the Encyclopedia Britannica, among many others. His published work conveys a fan's enthusiasm and a scholar's knowledge. And so why not quit right there? After all, there's a notion that folks who write about music just aren't that good at making it. Well, Cooper's not good at it. He's great at it.
