John was born into a musical family, and his mother was a piano teacher. He started singing at a young age, but his family was very religious and was strict with the music that was allowed in the house. As he grew up, he started listening to metal songs thanks to his friends, and would eventually pursue a career in music.
In 1989, Cooper became part of the experimental rock group Seraph; they would release a demo entitled “Silence E.P” which had songs such as “Fading Love” and “Alone”, but the group disbanded shortly afterwards. His next endeavor would be in 1996, when he formed Skillet alongside Ken Steorts, who he met while touring for other bands, and they were encouraged by a pastor to form their own band as a side project. They combined different styles of rock music, and after a month caught the interest of Forefront Records, a Christian record label. Despite personnel changes, Skillet is still very active with John as the only remaining founding member. The band has released a total of 10 albums which has helped their net worth increase significantly. They’ve won numerous awards including a Billboard Music, HM and Drummies! Awards.
