Songs from the County Line
Coppersonic is rock trio playing music that combines the elements found in rock, blues and country. The result is something that has been described as Alt-Country or Americana; back in the day, those distinctions fell under the umbrella of Southern Rock. Coppersonic's new CD (release date October, 2006), 'Songs from the County Line' was recorded at Retromedia in Red Bank NJ by Paul Ritchie (What About Frank). The music clearly reflects the band's musical roots and features performances by a group that has hit their stride as a band and as individual players. Based in New York, Coppersonic was founded by bassist/singer John Truelove and guitarist John Carini in early 2002. Truelove is originally from Virginia and he brings a definitive country flavor to the band's sound as evidenced by the distinctive southern accent in his singing voice. A native of Long Island, John Carini developed an articulate and very musical style of guitar playing that has it's roots in Hendrix and is supplemented by classical training. Completing the line up is John Hummel, a drummer who echoes the sounds of the great 1970s power drummers. Since the band's formation, Coppersonic has released a full-length debut CD 'Coppersonic', performed extensively in the eastern US from Vermont to North Carolina, made television appearances and have been heard on national and international radio.
