Ian Hooper is an Artist, musician and songwriter from the UK. With over 25 years experience as a live performer, Ian is now releasing his recorded music to the public.
Ian Hooper has been performing on stage since the tender age of 5 years old. Ian began working in the theatre as a child actor, landing a part in the London West End stage production of the musical Oliver Twist. During this period, Ian began to realise his true talent and great love for music and composition.
At the age of 13, Ian began to teach himself to play the piano and write songs. The piano/vocal performance of his first composition won him a scholarship to attend the Sylvia Young Theatre School in London. While attending the school, Ian gained valuable experience in the entertainment industry working regularly with professional Theatre and Television productions.
After leaving School, Ian began touring the UK with various theatre productions until a
meeting with a music-booking agent led him play his first music gig at a piano bar in Switzerland. Ian has since become one the most popular piano bar entertainers in Europe and Scandinavia.
The craft of song writing has never left Ian’s heart and he has been developing his compositions skills alongside his performance experience over the coarse of many years. This has gained Ian Hooper a great deal of insight into how people react to his music.
Ian Hooper feels that his music has now reached a point of maturity that will strike a chord in the hearts of many people around the world for many years to come.
After releasing his first 2 singles through Norwegian Label Genc Records/ Disco Wax: (Sony), Ian will soon be releasing new music through his own Label as an independent Artist.
