Two brothers, Greg (19) and James Cooper (23) have joined forces to create their new project, Somehow.
With a melodic focus and classically creative ear, the brothers have been writing new original songs since the split of their previous group, Citizen. In late 2000, Citizen released the single ‘Mel’s Song’ written by James, from their debut EP, ‘Distance Between Strangers’.
Mel’s Song went on to receive rotation on ABC’s Triple J through Caroline Tran’s Super Request and Richard Kingsmill’s Oz Music Show, and the EP enjoyed favourable full-page write-ups in local street press, national sales through HMV stores and the support of a dedicated local fan base.
James and Greg have decided to pursue a more defined musical goal together in Somehow.
