FREE E-TIP for singers and songwriters - songwritersconnection.com
Kim Copeland has become one of Nashville's top independent producers, with a wide and enviable list of achievements. Perhaps the best indication of how far she's come is her inclusion in The Art & Science of Sound, the acclaimed video series on music production and recording put together by world-renowned producer/artist Alan Parsons and featuring legends like Michael McDonald and producer Tony Brown.
The accomplishments that led her there are many. Her clients have won numerous competitions and topped print and online music charts. She has done custom projects for special events and festivals as well as promotional work for a major motion picture. Her production work for artists like Nashville Star finalist Rachel Williams, McKenna Faith and Drake Jensen, have drawn critical raves and attracted some of the top names in Nashville songwriting and some of its best studio musicians.
Her reputation as a gifted song troubleshooter has made her one of the most sought-after speakers, consultants and songwriting instructors in the country for organizations including TAXI, The Songwriters Connection and the Nashville Songwriters Association International. Her own songs have been recorded by artists in the U.S., Canada, and Europe, and she has released two albums of her own. Her education and background as a vocalist have helped her become one of the city's most respected vocal arrangers.
"I love helping songwriters and artists find their voice and their audience," she says. Rachel Williams, a rising star who has opened for Wynonna, Trace Adkins and Jason Aldean and for whom Kim acted as manager as well as producer, is a prime example. Kim has been instrumental in her development, helping to groom her as a songwriter and pairing her with some of Music Row's most accomplished tunesmiths. No less than Music Row magazine said Williams' recorded work "should stand proudly beside anything coming out of Nashville this year."
