promo-photo-2011-websiteAtlanta based Agent Cooper is a Southern Prog Rock band formed in 1998 from the remnants of Atlanta progressive rock bands Salem Ash and Rain. With two albums to their credit released on ProgRock Records in the 2000′s, most of the band spent the decade recording and touring with Fozzy and Stuck Mojo. Most notably, the band was called together to record and tour Rich Ward’s major label solo release “The Duke: My Kung Fu Is Good”.

With industry forces frustrating “the band that could have been”, guitar instrumentalist Mike Martin was added as a permanent fixture in the Agent Cooper lineup to capitalize on and advance with “the band that is”. Agent Cooper is Doug Busbee, Eric Frampton, Sean Delson, Mike Martin and Ganesh Giri Jaya.
