Bio

With no performing or recording experience, Coops performed at his first Open Mic competition hosted by Ian Haug from Powderfinger and Airlock Studios at the Afrika Pacifika Festival Brisbane early 2006. As a result of his performance he was given the opportunity to record at the studios, where he recorded his first track Underground Hound - a track where he covers his thoughts on music, fake American accents and the vanity in the entertainment world seen through the eyes of a somewhat envious or sceptical 9 to fiver. In 2007 Coops and Biotic formed The Allegiance and have had regular gigs in Brisbane since, opening for Muph & Plutonic on their Gold Coast leg in 2007, Simplex and opening the Brisbane leg of Heatwave at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre 2012. The Allegiance are nearing the completion of their debut album Read Between The Rhymes, and features vocals from ARIA nominee Jen Cloher and Dan James from Drawn From Bees To hear more check The Allegiance @ www.triplejunearthed.com/TheAllegiance
