Greg Copeland is coming back to New Zealand!

He's going back to the roots with an up close and personal acoustic journey.
He brings with him his latest CD titled "Brown-eyed Handsome Man", released in March 2019.

Greg pays his dues to the originals and forefathers of the Blues from deep down South, channelling the spirit into his own material and style.
You'll hear warm embraces with Sister Soul and a tip of the hat to Brother Funk.

On his side will be Steve 'Guitar' Gilles, playing acoustic and resonator steel guitar, while wailing on the Blues Harp, also known as the 'Mississippi saxophone'.

Greg Copeland was born in Portsmouth, Virginia (USA).

While growing up Greg was and still is heavily influenced by artists such as James Brown, Wilson Pickett, Robert Johnson, Howlin´Wolf and many others.
These influences have helped Greg to develop his own unique style, based on Blues taking in Soul and Funk elements.

He is performing regularly across Europe and has been touring as far afield as Israel and New Zealand.

Greg is also an accomplished songwriter and produced several CDs. His latest CD titled "Brown-eyed Handsome Man" was just released in March 2019.

„When I sing I want you to feel my hurt, my pain, my happiness and my sadness. I want to ask for forgiveness if I did something wrong and forgive people if they have done me wrong. All these things I try to do with my music.“
