that is rooted in bands like Led Zeppelin, The Who, Pearl Jam, and Rival Sons,
yet delivered with their own unique modern twist. The Zwart brothers moved to
The Netherlands, settled in Utrecht, and found their drummer; the fourth member
that completes the brotherhood and taught the Zwart’s to keep a steady pace.
COPPERSKY’s third album, Orbiter iis an ode to their never ceasing,
always evolving, journey as musicians and temporary travelers of the cosmos.
The title also showcases their awe for everything Sci-Fi. Orbiter reveals nine strong
composed rock-songs – another quality of the group – that were produced by Pablo
van de Poel (lead singer and guitarist of DeWolff).
Lead singer Erik Zwart, often compared vocally to Eddy Vedder and Bruce
Springsteen, uses his lyrical talents to craft poetical narratives that speak to the
imagination. He is sided by guitarist Marty Zwart that uses Neil Young and Pete
Townshend inspired rock riffs, and bass guitarist Robert-Jan Zwart – seemingly
born of a romance between John Entwistle and John Paul Jones. Backed by the
adventurous thundering drums of Ray Murphy – that delivers each moment
in the spirit of Keith Moon.
These qualities can be heard on their third full length album, Orbiter, and during
the often-improvised sweaty rock shows.
