John Landrum Cooper (born April 7, 1975), also known as John L. Cooper, is an American singer, guitarist, and songwriter.
He has been the lead vocalist, bassist, and co-founder of the Grammy-nominated American Christian rock band Skillet since 1996, as well as his partner's Fight the Fury since 2018.
Personal lifeOn several occasions, John Cooper has stated that he was born and raised in a strict religious family and community, and that listening to rock music was not allowed in his parents' household. "You couldn't wear black, you couldn't listen to anything with drums, or guitars," says the singer, "you couldn't have long hair, and you couldn't do this." Everything was so lifeless. I'd read the Bible and be like...'This isn't what the Bible says.' I love the idea of living for Jesus, but I dislike the prospect of living for you.'
Cooper came from a musical family. In the church where he went to, his mother was a piano teacher and a singer. He began singing at a young age, playing guitar at the age of 18, and bass guitar at the age of 19.
Cooper and his partner Korey have two children as of 2016.
Cooper has been a vocal opponent of the "deconstruction movement" who believes that many churches are failing to teach the gospel as taught in the Bible.
Cooper was briefly involved in the experimental rock band Seraph from 1989 to 1995. Before disbanding, the band performed Silence E.P., a four-song demo. "Alone," "Silence," "Wild Honey," and "Fading Love" were among the track names.
In 1996 with Ken Steorts, Cooper formed Skillet. Both of them had appeared on stage before; Cooper as a singer for the Tennessee progressive rock band Seraph and Steorts as guitarist for Urgent Cry. The bands disbanded soon after, so Cooper and Steorts' pastor encouraged them to form their own band as a side-project. They decided to call the experiment Skillet after being inspired by various styles of rock music. Trey McClurkin joined the band as a temporary drummer shortly afterward. Skillet was only together for a month when they first received interest from major Christian record company ForeFront Records and were signed shortly afterward. Ken Steorts left the band in 1999, and Trey McClurkin left the band in 2000, leaving Cooper as the band's sole founding member and primary songwriter.
For!Hero: The Rock Opera, Cooper performed vocals. Cooper did not appear on the occasion of the rock opera, only on the soundtrack, not the Rabbi Kai. Cooper was co-writer on the Decyfer Down song "Best I Can."
He performed on tobyMac's album, Tonight, which debuted at No. 13 in the United States, and he appeared on the title track. On the Christian Songs chart, 27 is number 27. He appeared on "Zombie," the band's debut self-titled album on their debut and made a cameo appearance in the music video for "Strike Back." He signed them to his own brand.
In September 2018, Cooper initiated Fight the Fury, a side project. Skillet's heavier music is hoped for by the band. The band released an EP on Atlantic Records later in 2018 and then went on tour in Russia in December. They have five albums as of October 27, 2018.
