Early on, as David Kent was getting things rolling with Heavy Velvet, he managed to gather a super-group of musicians to record what has become “Sessions”. Check out the slew of talent featured on this record:
David Kent (Heavy Velvet, Slow Season, David Kent) Erika Leigh (Heavy Velvet) Mucho Drums (Great Electric Quest, Livin Alive, Gygax, Sabbath Buddy Sabbath) Chuck Elder (The English Beat, Electric Soul Co.) Cody Tarbell (Slow Season, The Aviators, Mr. Jimmy) Hayden Doyel (Slow Season, Brim)
(By Emily Zemler)…Longevity in music comes through pushing yourself and expanding the possibilities of your sound. This has never been more true for Copeland on their latest effort Blushing, a collection of 11 new tracks that advance and evolve everything the trio of musicians has done up until now. The band, which originally formed in Lakeland, Florida in 2001, has unveiled six albums, spanning from their 2003’s debut Beneath Medicine Tree to 2016’s Ixora. While they began as a rock band, Copeland’s music has explored multiple genres and pulled in various stylistic influences like electronic and symphonic. In the past the musicians have aptly melded these styles, creating a unique amalgam of sounds. This time they wanted to take each sound and style and push it to its logical extreme.
