Biography

There are two artists named Copeland;

1) are an American indie rock group, originating in the city of Lakeland, Florida. Originally formed from Ev Angel in 2000 by singer Aaron Marsh (who also plays the guitar, mellotron, organ, and piano) with his friend, bassist and backup singer James Likeness and Thomas Blair on guitar. Guitarists Bryan Laurenson (who took the place of Blair in 2002), and his brother Stephen (joined in late 2007) , along with drummer Jon Bucklew (who took the place of Rusty Fuller, who was replaced after appearing on 2003’s rookie full-length, Beneath Medicine Tree) give the band an original feel that makes Copeland what they are. In 2002, they signed a record deal with independent label The Militia Group and released their debut album Beneath Medicine Tree a year later. They operate out of Atlanta, Georgia and have a calm, pop-rocky sound. In 2004, 2005, and 2006 they performed at the annual Cornerstone Florida Festival in Orlando, Florida. In Motion, Copeland’s second full length CD, was released on March 22, 2005. Eat, Sleep, Repeat, Copeland’s third full length album, was released on October 31, 2006. Major label Columbia Records signed the band in late 2006.

Beneath Medicine Tree features a heavy medical theme. Aaron Marsh admits that the lyrics in this album were inspired by the hospitalisation of his girlfriend and the death of his grandmother. The album booklet includes photographs by James Likeness of hospital scenes.

    feels more like Marsh and the Laurensons came together to produce a record for themselves than anything. notably different result than their older cohesive groove-driven records, but quite beautiful all the same.

    The new album reminds me of Sufjan Stevens at some points. Mainly the vocals. Just discovered the band too. Love what I'm hearing.
