Greg Copeland, deep blues singer, tells you stories, nothing more. The blues is part of his life, Robert Johnson and Muddy Waters, the gospel music that he heard his mother sing, the soul of Memphis or the godfather's "Please, Please, Please". Born in Porstmouth (VA), the road led him to settle in Germany where he has recorded and toured with European musicians such as the German Martin Messing himself or the British Chris Wragg and from where he has polarized his career, with the band The Soul Gang or with the several collaborations , among others, that of the bluesman Big Daddy Wilson. Since the middle of the last decade he have joined a duo with guitarist and harmonica player Steve "Guitar" Gilles, born in Germany and established in New Zealand, and this "Live In Aotearoa New Zealand" is their first album, recorded live and in acoustic format. A delight to hear Copeland sing backed by the simple but effective instrumentation of his mate. The soul of "People Get Ready" or "Georgia On My Mind", the blues of "Crossroads" or "I Got To Move" to the classic roots of "The House Of The Rising Sun "or" St. James Infirmary" endow to this album of an inestimable richness.
