C O P A L is a melding of string fusion with hip hop and world beats. Boston-based electronic ambient group combines traditional sounds stemming from Spanish gypsy, Eastern European, Nordic and Middle Eastern influences with electronic beats and soundscapes of the modern age. Instrumentation includes violin, cello, vocals, acoustic and electric guitar, bass guitar, doumbek, synthesizer and live electronic beats, as well as tribal-style belly dancing and black light theatrics.
ON FIRE is the modern post-rock equivalent of an impressionist chamber group playing for the sake of immediacy in a time of ultimate crisis. Expect some of the beautiful foundational elements of The Burning Paris immersed in a more brooding, dynamic, pulverizing, and symphonic frame. The Boston quintet features; whispered vocal melodies, sweeping cello lines, arpeggiated and swirling duel guitars, humming synths, staggered by a rhythm section that floats between sedate dub and bass to aggressive and unforgiving rock.
AMY FAIRCHILD is an award winning Boston based singer songwriter of whom the Berkshire Eagle raved, ""Fairchild combines the literate intimacy of a new-folk singer-songwriter, the unerring pop-rock instincts of a Sheryl Crow, and the moves of a rock goddess."
