Biography

There is more than one artist with this name:

1) The Coupe de Villes were a new wave band formed by acclaimed film director John Carpenter. The line-up featured Carpenter, who provided vocals and played bass guitar, keyboardist Nick Castle (perhaps most famous for playing the role of Michael Myers in Halloween, Carpenter’s seminal 1978 horror movie), and Tommy Lee Wallace on guitar, with whom Carpenter had previously written the script for Escape from New York. The band recorded one full-length album, ‘Waiting out the Eighties’, and the title song to the 1986 movie Big Trouble in Little China.

2) The Coupe de Villes are a contemporary Rhythm & Blues band from Rochester, N.Y.
The Coupe De Villes Are:

LEX BYERS: Lead vocals
TOMMY BIANCHI: Guitars, vocals
JOHN CIANCIOLA: Keyboards, vocals
JEFF MORRISON: Bass, vocals
GEORGE DeMOTT: Drums

In this age of hype and music driven by popular fads, The Coupe De Villes, with their devotion to pure, driving rhythm & blues, come as a welcomed breath of fresh air. Although they owe a great debt to a number of popular blues styles, The Coupes (as they are commonly called by their fans) have molded their own unique sound, blending the pure emotion of Chicago blues with the driving power of rock. The result is a hot mix of passionate vocals, rock solid rhythm, and scorching, yet tasteful solos.

With the worldwide release of Burnin’ Blues (After Hours, Ichiban Records), it’s clear The Coupe De Villes have paid their dues. From “Sweet Sweet Man” and “Geraldine” to the slow cryin’ blues of “So Many Reasons” and “Mean Streak”, it’s one of those albums that just hooks you and keeps getting better with each listen.
