Meet Liam Cooper.

More than a talented musician, he’s a musical entrepreneur.

With a musical adventure that began as a small child, Liam had already performed in front of thousands of people at Sydney's Entertainment Centre for the NSW Schools Spectacular, sung the National Anthem at ANZ Stadium for the Sydney Olympics 10 Year Anniversary and entertained audiences at Tom Jones’ and Lady Gaga’s sold-out Sydney shows – all before graduating high school.

While completing a marketing degree at the Wollongong University, Liam became a favourite on the Sydney live music scene, where you’ll still find him behind the keys at The Soda Factory in Surry Hills on a Thursday night.

Aussie guy proposes to girlfriend in packed cinema. Best wedding proposal EVER!

In 2015, the internet went nuts over Liam’s elaborate cinema marriage proposal. Clocking up 2 million views in its first two weeks on YouTube, the video now has over 10 million views. Bombarding social media feeds around the world, it attracted major attention from Time Magazine, MTV, The Daily Mail and Huffington Post, with national news and media coverage back home in Australia. Liam’s video literally became a hit, overnight.

Kings of the Keys

Taking the leap from piano bar to centre stage, Liam premiered his brand new show Kings of the Keys in 2018 to a sell-out crowd at Wollongong’s Anita’s Theatre.

Billy Joel, Elton John, Peter Allen, Ray Charles… these are the Kings of the Keys.

Join Liam and his 6-piece band for a jam-packed tribute to more than 15 artists whose piano-driven hits have made them undeniable Kings of the Keys.

In 2020 Liam will bring this celebration of piano rock and roll royalty to stages across Sydney and regional NSW, backed by a killer live band of drums, bass, guitar and trio of horns.

On land, and on sea.

The world's largest cruise lines fly Liam around the globe to perform Kings of the Keys in some of the biggest theaters at sea, entertaining more than 12,000 guests in 2019 alone. Kings of the Keys is presented as two stand-alone shows: a celebration of Billy Joel & Elton John, and a journey through the Greatest Piano Hits of All Time.

“Liam takes his audience on a trip down memory lane every time he performs. He was very professional and only ever wants to give his audience what they deserve - the absolute very best.”
