Bio: With Cody Copeland's alt-pop originals, there is a very deliberate ratio of mood and movement. A lot of what sets his sound apart is the unconventional mixture of lyrics and style, which he jokingly refers to as “tough times dance music”. That isn't to say all of his work can be described as such... See Full Bio

SPACEFACE It has long been a dream to find the perfect path, a means to achieve simple happiness, contentment, and inner peace. These are qualities that strangely elude us all. But it doesn't have to be that way. We at Spaceface have discovered that path. GOLD FIRES A group of five rambunctious friends who grew up in the outskirts of Chicago. Gold Fires's members Siul, Edgar, Josh, Mark, and Jose were united last year in late 2012, drawn together by their similar tastes in music and their differences in style. Rocking local venues throughout Chicago, this mischievous quintet has come a long way in such a short amount of time. With their first EP scheduled to be released later this year they are ready to develop and reach greater hights. The sound of G.F. is reminiscent of bands such as The Strokes and Arctic Monkeys. The drums producing a hip hop blue print, the dynamic voice of the front man projecting the influences of jazz crooning mixed in with a hint of raspy post punk. The two guitars courting one another conceiving a constantly evolving sound and finally, with the melodious sound of the bass tying everything together making the Gold Fires an act that deserves to be heard. CODY COPELAND Cody Copeland's Alt-Pop originals employ a wide span of instruments ranging from thick slabs of vintage synthesizers, to both analog and electronic drums, glockenspiel, acoustic guitar, and occasionally accordion, all of which he plays, records, and produces himself. These textural elements back a bright smoky vocal delivery, which Copeland says is influenced by a childhood favorite crooner, Roy Orbison. In 2009, he released his first album of self-written and recorded songs, titled Luster. Then, in 2011, after moving from his hometown of Freeport, FL to Chicago, IL, he released "Happenings," heavily laced with glittery synthesizers, dance drums, and new-wave pop sensibilities. Released most recently, after his return to Florida, "Two States" is the product of living in two polar opposite places during the writing and production of one album. Take the liveliness of the streets of Chicago, add the desolation of the dunes on the Gulf of Mexico, find yourself traveling back and forth, and you have the rhythm behind "Two States". His songwriting takes you from new love to old, betrayal to forgiveness, hometown to downtown and everywhere in between, all with a softness that comforts you from your worst days to your best.
