Episode 92: Copperline

Copperline is a Sydney/Blue Mountains alt-country four-piece that have lived and breathed the highs and lows of the rock and low life – and that experience can’t help but find its way into their music.

After decades touring as hired guns for Aus music royalty including Steve Kilby (the Church), Jeff Duff and Peter Fenton (Crow), they  launched their debut record Rusty Fords and Weatherboards (produced by Shane Nicholson) in 2018. Decades in the making, it showcased both Copperline’s musical versatility and reverence for the classic song writing of everyone from Steve Earle and Lucinda Williams to Tom Waits.

While the long COVID hibernation might have interrupted touring plans, it also gave Copperline time to work on a second record. The band returned to the studio in 2021, again with collaborator Shane Nicholson, with a brand new batch of songs. The result is a body of work that builds on the band’s trademark blend of story telling and twang, while also exploring broader and richer soundscapes and moods.
