Artist of the Week: Kopecky Family Band

Kopecky Family BandWERS is featuring the Nashville-based Kopecky Family Band as our Artist of the Week!

Though not related by blood, the six members of Kopecky Family Band have created a bond fortified by the roads they’ve traveled and the songs they’ve written. The Family was born out of an in-dorm jam session back in 2007 and displays its interconnectedness through its member’s ability to create enduring harmonies and perform and swap multiple instruments with each other during live shows, which have included acclaimed performances at last year’s CMJ Music Festival and this year’s SXSW. The versatility and individual strengths of each member blend together seamlessly enough to earn this family favorable comparisons to groups like Fleetwood Mac.

Last April, Kopecky Family Band released their long-awaited full-length debut, Kids Raising Kids, featuring the infectious lead single “Heartbeat.” They are currently on tour in support of the new album and will be playing at the Brighton Music Hall in Boston this Friday, June 21 with this week’s On The Verge artist, Blondfire. But not before stopping by the WERS studios to give you an exclusive in-studio performance live on-air, so make sure to tune in and check them out only on 88.9 WERS!
