A modern country music singer and songwriter, Mikaila Cooper incorporates honest lyrics and bold melodies into her music that connects with a wide audience. 

Like other successful country music artists, Cooper surrounds herself with some of the most talented in the industry, like Canadian country superstar George Canyon and award winning producer Johnny Gasparic.

Cooper has won multiple award, including first place in Cowboys Star Competition and the Best Original Song Title in Calgary's Ranchman's Rising Star Contest, and Country 103 Indie Highlight Contest Winner 2017. This year, she's a part of Project WILD Showcase Series.

Out of all the restaurants and pubs in Calgary, Cooper definitely has her favourites. Here's a list of where she likes to go for breakfast, lunch, dinner and drinks.


My fave breakfast place is easily Dicksons Pub!! It's my local high school hangout bar, so it holds a bit of a soft spot in my heart, but their breakfast can't be beat on a Sunday morning with the girls!




I have a new favourite lunch spot! Native Tongues is mind blowing. I’m not sure what else to say other than make sure you get the doughnut!!! You will not regret it one bit!




I’m an Alberta girl to the core, so when it comes to dinner, steak is my go-to. Saltlik is hands down the best! If you're a steak snob, trust me on this one.
