Copper & Coal, Knut Bell

Copper & Coal

Country chanteuses Copper & Coal sit pretty in the classic country genre, covering golden greats such as Loretta Lynn, Buck Owens, and Hank Williams. They also deliver a shining set of original tunes and are set to release their debut album, produced by Portland’s King of Country Music Caleb Klauder, in June 2013. Soaring vocal harmonies, fiddle, and pedal steel beget a nostalgic sound that will have you laughing, dancing, drinking, and crying in true country style.

Knut Bell

Few songwriters alive today work as hard as Knut Bell, who regularly clocks four-hour marathon shows at honky-tonks all the way from Conway, Wash., to Austin, Texas, where he recently delivered 200 cases of Rainier in exchange for 200 of Lone Star as part of the Great American Beer Swap organized by alt-country social club Horses Cut Shop. Hand-in-hand with his rock-solid work ethic is the rumbling, Waylonesque baritone that barrels from his broad frame, nailing covers from the "outlaw" catalog alongside his own self-penned tunes—songs accompanied by country legends like Merle Haggard's guitarist Redd Volkaert and Johnny Cash's piano man Earl Poole Ball on his latest album, Wicked, Ornery, Mean, and Nasty.
Voted Best Country Artist by the Seattle Weekly 2012, Skagit Valley’s most favored sons’ songs are all his own, born of his experiences as a fisherman, a rabble rouser, and a lifetime resident of the northwest. You can hear traces of Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, and David Allan Coe in the feel, and the driving rhythm of his tunes will have your toes a tappin’ if you’re not already up two-stepping.
