Wil Cope

Submit Correction Claim Band

Wil Cope is an American folk musician and artist, both intimate and free. Son of a farrier, a constant traveler, washer of dishes and writer of songs, his debut album "Sunset Craves" harbors the sounds and images of the desert, the ocean, small town ghettos, farms and freeways. Recorded in Austin, Texas in 2010 and exceptionally produced by Heartless Bastards drummer David Colvin, the album is heavily influenced and comparable to Neil Young, Gram Parsons and Townes Van Zandt. Featuring Colvin on drums, Erika Wennerstrom of the Heartless Bastards on stunning backup vocals as well as Jesse Ebaugh of Heartless Bastards on some westward steel guitar, the album gives the listener a feeling of a long respected kinship. You can press play and hear sounds that are as genuine and familiar as an old car radio. Like catching a glimpse from the corner of your eye, and when you turn, there is nothing there but a good feeling. A memory you love to revisit time and time again, comforting, warm and true.
