Biography

The Copper Kings are a Seattle based band which came together in 2008 out of a love for both modern and classic American rock with an affinity for solid pop hooks. Frontman/songwriter Phil Austin and drummer/backup vocalist Chris Villasenor had formerly worked together and found they had a common penchant for music ranging from Indie to arena, 70’s to 2000’s and Metal to Pop…as long as it had great singable melodies and enormous guitar or vocal hooks. Lead guitarist, friend and co-producer/engineer of “Hellos and Goodbyes” Max Keene joined the band soon thereafter, bringing his extensive experience in both performance and production to the band’s existence. Friends from the age of 9, Charlie Bendock and Phil Austin reconnected after a chance meeting at the local grocery store, and in short succession an experienced bassist and third voice was added to the band.

The Copper Kings’ music has been described as an upbeat modern blend of the past four decades of American Radio Rock. The wide landscape of The Copper Kings’ 2009 debut release “Hellos and Goodbyes” stretches from crunchy guitars with emotionally charged lyrics, to the more contemplative and catchy mid-tempo songs describing what it’s like to be in and out of love. Flirting with a multitude of styles and genres, it’s clear that The Copper Kings draw their eclectic influences from as many successful radio artists as there are songs on “Hellos and Goodbyes.

    I heard these guys on KNRK in Portland, OR. Someone was on talking about their perfect playlist and played Disarray from these guys, and I was hooked. I bought the album off iTunes as soon as I got home. Honestly, this just sounds like the kind of great music that people aren't making anymore. Great sound with catchy lyrics, cool guitar work, etc. Seattle isn't much of a drive, and I definitely plan to try to catch a show sometime!
