With the help of Rae Cassidy (the featured vocalist on You Are My Sunshine) and live string section, Copeland dives into music from every era of their existence on the Now/Then tour, while re-imagining old favorites, indulging nostalgic tendencies, and exploring new sounds as well.
Copeland formed in Lakeland, Florida in 2001. The band’s first album, Beneath Medicine Tree, came out in 2003 on indie label The Militia Group. The album’s layered melodies, combined with Marsh’s thoughtful, emotive croon, immediately engaged music fans, offering a nuanced take on the emo music of the early ‘00s. The group unveiled four subsequent albums between 2005 and 2008, including Eat, Sleep, Repeat on Columbia Records in 2006. Copeland signed with Tooth & Nail in 2008 and partnered with the label to release their long awaited sixth album, Ixora.
