Java Blend Exclusive Hour With Roxi Copland

May 22, 2014

In this episode of IPR Studio One's "Java Blend," host, Ben Kieffer will chat with soulful Milwaukee artist, Roxi Copland.

Listen to and download the podcast to find out more about the making of their debut album.

Roxi Copland performs throughout the US, entertaining with an engaging combination of her own songs and innovative arrangements of everything from Ella to the Offspring. Copland’s unique genre is best summed up in the words of one particularly eloquent reviewer as “a possibly schizophrenic but absolutely brilliant concoction of jazz, pop and soul.”

She’s recently been described as “Norah Jones with bite”. In addition to her own tours, Copland has opened for a number of prominent national and international acts, including pop sensation Vanessa Carlton, jazz virtuoso Jason Lindner, Ivan Neville’s Dumpstafunk, the Mingus Dynasty Band and the acapella powerhouse the Manhattan Transfer. The Milwaukee-based artist was recently nominated for both Singer/Songwriter of the Year and Jazz Artist of the Year by the Wisconsin Area Music Industry. Beautifully blurring the boundaries of blues, jazz, & pop, this talented singer/songwriter/pianist won’t disappoint. Truth Be Told is Copland’s first full-length full-band studio album. She’ll be touring throughout the Midwest this summer in support of the new release.
