"Push me over into the sea, then jump in after me. Let's swim to the bottom, maybe we might find an open door connected to the ocean floor, as we perfect the art of escape" - The Art of Escape, Hein Cooper. Hein Cooper is an Australian indie musician and songwriter from Milton, New South Wales. In 2013, he was discovered performing in a small bar in Sydney by Franz Schuller, manager of Half Moon Run. Hein was invited to write and demo his songs in Montreal, Canada, where he met and recorded his debut EP and Album with producer Marcus Paquin (Arcade Fire, The National, Local Natives). His songs have strong themes of change, escapism and transformation particularly in the first single "The Art of Escape" which was a full add at Triple J in Australia. As Hein himself puts it: "It is a call to all of the wonderful displaced beings I have found in my life and more broadly everybody who feels alone in their own idealistic dreaming". In May 2015, Hein released his debut EP in Australia and Canada and has toured relentlessly across Australia, Canada, USA and Europe including stops at CMW in Toronto; Great Escape, Somersault and Boardmasters festivals in the UK where his unique and honest brand of indie, and magnetic live shows are steadily gaining a loyal fan base. He returns home to tour his native Australia from Nov 2015 to April 2016 to support the first 2 singles off his upcoming debut album to be released in Feb 2016.
