David Lareau & the Copperpots / Bio

"What Oasis might sound like if they were from Florida, drank more and fought with each other less."

David Lareau was exposed to all the good and the bad of the record industry when he was a Columbia recording artist, all at the age of 19. When the numbers game left him without a deal, he went from auditoriums to clubs, from the big stages to a day job, and started to write songs for himself. The result was his self-titled album "Hugs From Distant Neighbors" seven songs written and performed by someone who has been there and back. The album was recorded in Nashville, TN produced by Noel Hartough (Mile) and mixed by John Kurzweg (Socialburn, Jewel, Eagle Eye Cherry, Puddle of Mudd)

Take a trip with a real songwriter as he drives through elegant sonic landscapes (on Good From The Start) questions his faith (Coastal Highway) or comments about the broken American home (The Rising). David Lareau's voice is filled with passion and devoid of pretense. Layers of guitars, evocative lyrics and an honest voice that will take you back to a place when you believed.

In the end, Hugs From Distant Neighbors is the perfect soundtrack for a long drive down a winding road, with the windows rolled down and your fingers tapping along.

David Lareau & The Copperpots are also available for weddings and bar mitzvahs.
