Greg Copeland

Deep Down South

Like many other great Blues artists before him Greg Copeland soaked up the music early in his childhood only to come to the peak of his performance and recognition that he deserves much later in life.

Greg Copeland was born Gregory Andre Copeland in Portsmouth, Virginia (USA).

There was always music being played in the Copeland household.

Greg´s mother Delores Copeland was a Gospel Singer with an excellent voice.

I can still remember as a small child how my Mother used to sing me a song before I went to sleep at night. She had so much emotion in her voice. Just by her singing I could tell if she was happy or sad.

Her perserverance and the love that she showed me and my brother while raising us alone still influences me deeply and has had a great impact on my singing and songwriting“.

Being influenced by artists such as Robert Johnson, Leadbelly and Muddy Waters has helped Greg to develop his unique singing style.

„When I sing I want you to feel my hurt, my pain, my happiness and my sadness. I want to ask for forgiveness if I did something wrong and forgive people if they have done me wrong. All these things I try to do with my music.“
