Meet Emrhys Cooper from Devon who moved to LA 5 years ago as a performer. His debut single Hypnotized is released on iTunes now.
Was there a particular reason you chose LA ?I always dreamed of moving to LA ever since I saw a program about LA when I was about 12 years old. It's known as the land of opportunities and I guess being in Entertainment made me gravitated towards it.What one thing do you miss from home?I miss my family and friends.. And going to the pub ;)
What do you find the biggest difference is living here versus the UK?The weather and driving everywhere. I do feel people have a much more open attitude here. I like the optimism people have towards the arts here.Do you have a hidden gem in LA that you want to share with us?I adore Pace on Laurel Canyon, its also right by my house. I also love eating out in Silverlake and Downtown.What would you suggest to others who are thinking about making the move here ?I would say… Save up before coming as the first year or so might be a struggle to get on your feet. I wish I had, as it took me a couple of years to find my feet.Come out here for a visit for a couple of months to see if you like it, make some friends. Moving out here already have a support system will make the transition easier.
