Album Review: Raised Under Grey Skies - JP Cooper
Graham Clark, Features Writer
No doubt the album title relates to his home city of Manchester. Many will know JP Cooper through his first big hit September Song and his dance track Perfect Strangers with Jonas Blue.

In over 18 months he has gone from playing support slots to his own headline tour this month.

Interview With Lina
The album has these two hits along with Passport Home and She's on My Mind his two other singles.

Chances are if you like the singles, you will like the album. At times his voice reminds me of the former Mattafix vocalist Marlon Roudette.

Tracks such as Wait and Beneath The Streetlights and The Moon are standout songs, whilst flavour of the month Stormzy crops up on the last track, Momma's Prayers.

At times with a twist of folk, at other times soulful with a touch of gospel this is an accomplished debut with possibly a BRIT nomination coming next February for the BRIT awards.

I give the album 3 out of 5
