PAT COOLEY

Born January 3rd, Pat Cooley was the oldest of 3 children born to Robert & Marie Cooley. Pat started singing at the age of 10, at a church choir anniversary in her hometown of Marietta, Ga. While attending school she sang in the senior and junior church choirs. She also took private voice lessons from Worldwide Opera star Lillian Sullivan.

After graduating school, Pat started singing in R&B Clubs in the Atlanta area and performing sound alike tapes for a local recording studio. While appearing in local clubs she was approached by Clarence Carter who was interested in recording her. She began working for Clarence as his secretary in his recording studio and would help in the studio sometimes doing back-up work or laying demos. By 1980 she was Clarence's opening act.

In 1983 she decided to diversify her music style and went on a DOD Tour with a Country & Western Band, which turned out to be quite a success. Her travels include Turkey, Greece, Beirut, Italy and Spain. She also entertained troops in Beirut and sang on the USS Iwo Jima and the USS Portland.

In 1984 Pat went on tour, and her travels that year included South Africa, Japan, Italy, Amsterdan and Paris. After being so warmly received, Pat recorded her first album entitled "DOUBLE TALK". She then went on to record her CD's entitled "WARM HUG" and "REAL THING". Pat then recorded a single entitled "OLDER WOMAN, YOUNGER MAN", from the compilation CD, Blues, Soul, and Old School, produced by BIGG ROBB. Her CD entitled "BOY TOY" is a continuation of the "OLDER WOMAN" saga. That CD has many good songs including her hit single "BOY TOY" and her last single "HYPNOTIZED". Pat has done it again with her latest CD entitled "COUGAR" with a hit single "GET OUT". You must hear some of her latest work including a remake of the Bill Withers song "USE ME".
