Copperhead with Lucas Chaisson
Welcome the new faces of folk to the Eddy! Explore deep, dark soundscapes with Copperhead with the soulful roots vocals of opener Lucas Chaisson.
Copperhead makes folk music for the 21st century, born not in the bucolic countryside but in downtown alleyways, with punk and acid rock peering around the corners. Lurking around the deliciously dark intersection of lo-fi, post-industrial noise, R&B and minor-key murder ballads, Copperhead immerses audiences in ambient, expansive soundscapes with texture and reverb.
Copperhead is Liz Stevens on lead vox and songwriting, Kirill Telichev as lead guitarist/producer, Kane Bender on drums, Rob Smeltzer on bass, and Jamey Lougheed on baritone sax.
