Copper & Glass
What if everything that glitters isn't gold? What if nothing is? What if, as the French philosopherRené Descartes famously pondered, we are destined to look back at all the shiny things we've piled into a massive heap in the corner of our tidy little lives only to find that all we've ever really had was a little copper and glass?
This is the question the five men from California's agricultural Central Valley have set out to answer with an organic, uncomprisingly authentic musical approach. The hard questions, they believe, are always best asked in a song. And the best songs move us ever-closer to the answers.
Copper & Glass is adept at churning out soft ballads and heavy groove-driven rockers alike - hearkening back to the straight-ahead rock 'n' roll of Lynyrd Skynyrd and Neil Young, while keeping a firm grasp on the twenty-first century sensibilities of more cerebral modern Americana/Roots artists like Ryan Adams, Ray LaMontagne, and Mumford and Sons. Heavy on pedal steel, mandolin, organ, rhodes piano, and electric guitar; Copper & Glass provides an always interesting combination of sounds against a finely woven tapestry of sentiment.
The band is currently planning a worldwide media campaign to support a self-titled release and Spring 2013 tour of the Southeastern U.S. Members have performed at notable Los Angeles area venues such as the legendary Whisky-a-Go-Go, a host of established venues in the San Francisco Bay Area, and countless stops across the West Coast and beyond. C&G has shared the stage with highly established bands such as widely popular Militia Group recording artists "Lakes" and the Central Valley's own "Poor Mans Poison," who hold the distinction of being the only independent artists to ever sell out the legendary Hanford Fox Theater.
Sioux City Kid
Led by songwriter Jared Griffin, Sioux City Kid came together in 2009 and has since morphed, shifted, and evolved into a commanding beast of a band. Sioux City Kid quickly gained notoriety in San Francisco for their whiskey-fueled performances and anthemic melodies like “Little Hell” and “Wishin' Well”. Within a year of the bands formation, they had won Live 105's Battle of the Bands, played Twitter's inagural Twestival, and performed at BFD alongside such heavy hitters as Spoon, Hole, Temper Trap and the Limousines at the Shoreline Amphitheatre. The release of their first LP, 2011's Speak of the Devil, But Softly, was greeted with a sold out evening at San Francisco's legendary Great American Music Hall. Sioux City Kid quickly became a mainstay of the SF rock scene. They have headlined sold out evenings at prestigious venues throughout San Francisco including Cafe du Nord, Bottom of the Hill, and the Independent. In 2012, the band was honored to open for Emmylou Harris at Lagunitas. The band is headed back into the studio this winter and their next album, Minutes, Miles, Troubles & Trials, is set for release in 2013.
Together this band has given birth to a new sound of originality, they take Acoustic Music to a new realm, cross-fusion styles of all 4 members mold into a refined, mature sound of beauty, yet beastly power! Jon and Ben have been in a Heavy rock project with Edson Lopez on Drum Kit, called God's and King's and Lianna is a gentle being from a classical background...Together they are a group to be reckoned with.
They shall be heard!...one song can be caressing and light, yet have you floating in your inner dreams, and another as powerful
as the strongest storm on the sea's ..."Before Perils "...very excellent mood music for your Heart, Mind, Body and Soul...
Come check them out at a venue near you , rest assured, when you do, you WILL be back to see them again and again....
