Fairfield, CT (PRWEB) October 07, 2013
Fairfield Theatre Company is proud to present an intimate acoustic solo performance with Citizen Cope at 8 p.m. Oct. 19 at Bridgeport’s Klein Auditorium, 910 Fairfield Ave.
Citizen Cope’s roots are complex with musical cues drawing from legends like Bill Withers, Neil Young, John Lee Hooker, Van Morrison, Willie Nelson and Al Green. Yet, listening to Cope, audiences may think hear none of these influences at all, but rather hear and feel a man who is expressing stories which haunt his very heart.
As a child of the 1970s, Cope’s life journey is as singular as his art. As a college student, Cope found himself fooling around with a primitive four-track setup. As the turntables intrigued him and the sounds of hip hop inspired invention, Cope got lost in his self-designed lab, cooking up beats and motifs which would later help shape the songs which audiences now know today.
With a sound that is rich in southern rural, big sky lonely, concrete urban, and heartbreaking romantic, Copes voice and songs are known to cut to the core of even the strongest of individuals. Having produced five albums of depth and distinction in the past nine years, Cope is always searching to create a sound that paints the auditory American landscape.
Coming now to Bridgeport’s Klein Auditorium for a special intimate solo acoustic performance will feature songs from his 2012 release “One Lovely Day” and his other classic hits. With Cope’s deep “sandpaper voice” with rich slow blues audiences will feel as though they are floating down a river of melodies on a brisk summer/autumn day.
Come see Citizen Cope’s intimate solo acoustic performance at The Klein Auditorium, and hear this amazing musician who has been soaring up the radio charts in a performance that shouldn't be missed.
