songwriting and vocals that are at once both soulful and crisp. Honest music is
the best kind, and Brian Copeland's music is honest." - Steve Sundholm,
Hollywood Producer/Engineer Singing and strumming since the age of ten, Brian Copeland has
cultivated a unique brand of catchy and lyrical guitar-pop.
Born in Iowa City and raised in the Pacific Northwest, Copeland draws on a planet of inspiration ranging from a
loving family and unwavering friendships to quirky Portland encounters and spectacular Cascadian scenes.
Built on honest themes and experiences, his music engages
a wide range of listeners from all walks of life.
The evolution of Copeland's current band can be traced back through
nearly fifteen years of on-stage success and partnerships with dozens of accomplished
musicians through his previous bands The Furleys and Pale Green Pants . This
year, with some of the best regional talent on board, including Arcellus Sykes on bass guitar, Brud Giles on
drums, Jeff Koch on lead guitar, and Amanda Breese on keys/vocals, Copeland released a 4-song EP "The
B Sides" to a sold-out house at the famous Jimmy Mak's in
Portland. Anchored by reflective lyrics, powerful vocal arrangements and silky
guitar hooks, the recording showcases not only superb musicianship, but
Copeland's production and songwriting chops.
"His (Copeland's) songs
dance with dreamy winks of Beatles-esque shiver; Crowded House's Neil Finn (who
remains at large); and a majestic dose of Matthew Sweet - all of these things,
of course, are Very, Very Good." - Corey Frye - Corvallis Gazette Times
In 2010, Copeland teamed up with world-class pianist,
songwriter, and arranger Matt Burnett and award-winning engineer and producer Keith Sommers (Absinthe, Lowcraft, Phonochrome) to record "Circles," his third full-length
recording. "Circles" is an expertly orchestrated collection of songs that combine the warmth and
refinement of classical strings with Burnett's undeniably catchy piano hooks
and Copeland's powerful lead vocals. Copeland followed the release with a west coast tour, which included
dates in San Francisco and Los Angeles. He has since returned to play dates
in southern California, including an appearance at the Yahoo! Music Studios in Santa Monica, CA.
"There's something to be
said for a well-crafted pop song, and this disc is full of them...Copeland's
true and amiable, with a
slight husky edge. With plentiful vocal harmonies, "Circles" is pop flavor with substance." - Kyle O'brien, The
As a vetted pop musician at the center of a galaxy of accomplished
musicians, Brian Copeland has built a powerhouse pop institution that remains
fresh and engaging from album to album and show to show.
"...This confident entertainer crafts hook-laden songs with a sophistication and emotional heft that has made him one of the fastest rising singer/songwriters in the Northwest." Lisa Lepine, Promotion Queen
When he isn't writing music for commercial placements, 23-year-old Jacob Westfall is touring the country performing his original music. A frequent flier to Nashville and LA, Jacob is an "always-keep-busy" type. After releasing his latest EP, "What If" produced by the super team of Bob Stark, Ryan Yerdon, and Steve Sundholm, (One Republic, Esperanza Spalding, Puddle of Mudd) he has been honored to entertain on festival stages like the "Bite and Brew of Salem" and the "Mogo Music Festival".
Jacob is currently working hard to plant seeds for the future. He has reunited with the producers of his last record to create a new project which he hopes will be ready for his fans by 2018.Aside from music, Jacob is an avid basketball player, blues dancer, and food enthusiast. During his free time he can often be found on rec-center courts, Portland ballrooms, and hip restaurants.
