Brian Copeland Band

Velvet Crush

Review by Eric Meli

After nearly 10 years of playing in the northwest music scene Brian Copeland has returned to his roots with his newest release called, "Velvet Crush.” This CD is filled with well-structured melodic and catchy pop tunes, the majority of which were written and produced by Brian Copeland himself. For more information (and to buy the CD), check out the band's website.

This review is available in book format (hardcover and paperback) in Music Street Journal: 2007 Volume 6 at
Track by Track Review
They lead things off with a very well played pop song.
Built with a bit of a bluesy feel, this features some nice fret work.
Here we get another catchy tune with a fast beat and cool lyrics.
Velvet Crush
This is a jazzy track where Copeland’s voice does a fine job. I could put this on repeat and not get tired of it.
Perfect Explanation
Copeland plays acoustic guitar on this well written song.
This one’s about someone coming around stirring up trouble between a man and his lady.
Indie Grrrl
Here we have a pop/rock tune with a good rhythm and fine guitar work.
This is another well done rock number.
U Don't Know
The band is tight on this rocker.
The Drone
Strong production and nice guitar work make this a good song.
