You may or may not be familiar with Acidjac, the local psychedelic rock band Liz Stevens was in, but you’ve likely started hearing the buzz about Copperhead or been served by Stevens at the Ship and Anchor Pub.
The 4-piece Copperhead, comprised of local music scenesters and recording engineers (The Suppliers, Mallard) began with Stevens and Kirill Telichev as a co-writing duo. It’s helmed by the haunting melodies and smoky, soulful voice of dynamic artist and songwriter Stevens. She’s equally captivating solo—with electric guitar-based songs characterized by a blues heart and rock ‘n’ roll soul—or with the band. Blending dark, throaty Motown, swaggering rock, folk with a rusty edge and some spacey instrumentation, Copperhead embodies the crossroads of classic Americana. Their 2014 Calgary Folk Music Festival and Ship and Anchor Upstart category song contest win cemented their reputation as a force to be reckoned with. With a new album, recorded at Audities Studio and live off the floor, Copperhead is ready for the spotlight.
