On April 3, 2014 RG Copper put the finishing touches on his 500th song he has written, performed and produced since 1990 much to the excitement of his already sizable army of fans. With the track expected to be a success, the exciting sound that he has made his own has gained interest from across the land. The development of his unique style is the result of a lifetime of musical influences. As he listened to such artists as The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Ricky Skaggs, John Denver and many others, RG dreamed of the day, from a young age, when he would write his own style of unique popular music.
His first foray into learning an instrument himself came when he started to take guitar lessons from well known guitarist Ricky Biszantz, from the local legendary group Rockduster, in Cincinnati, Ohio at the age of 13. Later he began to play bass guitar and keyboards which he continued with for years. It was the bass guitar in which he excelled and would play in high school bands while staying steady on the six string.Born in Ohio, he would develop his musical tastes and interests, and it was not long after picking up a guitar that he was experimenting with all genres in his special style of songwriting which has had a profound influence on the direction of his musical journey.
After realizing that making music was his main goal, he began to showcase his talents in various venues across Ohio playing at numerous gigs and making sure that his name and music were being heard by as many people as possible. He was quickly recognized for the unique style that he brought to the scene and his popularity began to grow.
After a five year break from music RG married painter, and poet, Heather Pawlicki in 2009. It was Heather that gave him the confidence, support and motivation to start writing and recording again. The two would go on to co-write over a dozen songs in which Heather contributed in many vital ways by writing unique, poetic lyrics as well as laying vocal tracks on their productions. The couple would split up years later but RG would go on to say that Heather was the key to the locked door of his musical creativity and to her he is eternally grateful.
His musical ambitions continued to grow, aided by the sounds of popular music that he finds all around him, he finds himself unrestricted to any genre. In fact his influences are vast, which his CD collection demonstrates, providing literally a room full of music from every corner of the globe.He is keen to point out that everything he listens to directs his musical development in some way. However, he would certainly include Ricky Skaggs, Eric Clapton, The Beatles, John Denver and Led Zeppelin as amongst his biggest influences.His many songs provide a combination of his exciting guitar playing and mellow vocals which bear testament to his songwriting, playing and producing with elements of classic rock, reggae, jazz, pop and R&B which one hears throughout his music.
RG’s schedule is increasingly relentless, and he is finding himself more in demand than ever on many websites across the web. It seems that the world is building an appreciation for his sound and talent. His loyal army of fans spread far and wide across the globe as they wait eagerly for their chance to listen to his newest productions.
Although he does not play live with a band, or as a solo artist, these days, he continues to stay on top of the game with his songwriting which gains more and more fans on a daily basis.
