This Friday at the Buttonwood Tree:
Singer/songwriter Dave Kopperman’s music dodges between the twin poles of jangly folk rock and taut new wave – with a hint of lush art pop thrown in. Celebrating the release of his first solo album (and inaugural vinyl LP from RMI Records), “Island off the Coast of America”.
Dave Kopperman’s eclectic music at once evokes the folksy harmonies of the Byrds, the tuneful songwriting of Paul McCartney, the literate yet emotive lyrics of Paul Simon, the ambient, progressive textures of Pink Floyd and the no-nonsense rocking of Talking Heads. Kopperman recently released his self-produced album Island off the Coast of America, and created a music video for his lead single, “Don Henley.” The video is animated with charcoal drawings by Kate TenEyck, and these works will be on display at The Buttonwood Tree throughout the month of September.
