“Sounds Good to Me,” which debuted in early July, is an all-new singer-songwriter series conceived and hosted by longtime Kitchener-Waterloo music veteran Jack Cooper.
The series features both local and touring artists of mostly original music across a wide range of voices, styles and genres of performance in the intimate performance space of the KW Little Theater at 9 Princess Street East in Waterloo. On Friday, July 29, another beloved Waterloo Region artist, Scott Wicken, will take the stage.
Wicken is a Canadian singer-songwriter, poet, spoken word artist and recording artist. He writes lyrical songs that are short stories. Accompanied by deft fingering, his songs go from serious and heartfelt, to funny and irreverent, to surreal and startling, as if each song is a different room in a bizarre, rambling house. He has performed at the Edmonton Folk Festival, Folk On The Rocks, Hillside Festival, North Country Fair and numerous bars, cafes, concert halls, house concerts and more. Wicken has also been a member of Dinocopter, City’N’Eastern, The Jolly Llamas and The Busted Monkeys. Years ago he did a theatrical comedy with Three Dead Trolls in a Baggie and also made a poetry film for Bravo Channel for his poem Where Do Children’s Souls Go?

Series founder and curator Jack Cooper is drawn to performers of their own material who excite him with their ideas, creative expression, and passion for articulating their musical vision. Recognizing the subjective nature of this approach is acknowledged through the series’ arch name, “Sounds Good to Me”. The KW Little Theater has long been regarded as an intimate performance space in the heart of Waterloo city center by artists and audiences alike and is considered by Cooper to be the ideal venue to present captivating performances.
