The live sound and atmosphere of a vintage studio recording is captured on the band's new, self-titled CD "Coppersonic" and includes the 3 singles "Memories of Hollywood", "Highway Blues" and 'the catchy "Time Wasters Club"'. Recorded at Retromedia studio in Red Bank NJ, Coppersonic has produced a recording with "A funky backbeat, blues guitar and soulful vocals". As the new CD continues gaining national and international interest, including radio play on Radio Sinnai, Belgium, Coppersonic's supporting tour of eastern US gains momentum with a live performance on WTVR television in Richmond VA and area venues.
Originally from Virginia, John Truelove began his musical career playing country, gospel as well as rock music which all influence his songwriting style. After moving to New York, he began hiring out his talents to area bands and musical projects. "I loved playing all the diverse styles of music in New York, but I was looking for the right project. Something that reached back to my roots," says Truelove.
Brooklyn born John Carini was also freelancing his unique style to various ventures. A forming member of the alt-rock band The Truth, which enjoyed success in the US and the UK, Carini developed his virtuosic style while earning his music degree from Hofstra University.
Coppersonic was born in early 2000 when the two began working for the first time in Truelove's Manhattan studio. Carini's Hendrix-esque riffs sing with a free form raw quality that blends well with Truelove's more structured style of composing. "It was as if we had been playing together for a decade; it just came together," remembers Carini.
To complete their sound, they began auditioning drummers and found John Cina, a native of Long Island and newcomer to the New York music scene. Cina's diverse drumming style and strong singing voice added another dimension to the music for which the two founders had been searching.
These components come together to create the tight, memorable songs on "Coppersonic" and the powerful energy of the band's live performances. These are the elements that allow Coppersonic to continue to earning accolades and winning new converts to their roots rock music.
