Oscillating between lighthearted love to the harsh realities of the world, COPPER is both impressively candid and refreshingly versatile. “The album is a balancing act of reality,” Keefer explains, “Half the songs are true stories, some of which shine light on social injustices and brutalities which for some unexplainable reason still exist in this world.” This is evidenced in the contrast between the stripped back track “Slow Motion” and its subsequent song, “Hellfighter.” On “Slow Motion,” listeners are encouraged to take the struggles in stride because you “better live your life” while “Hellfighter” is a raucous Americana-esque song on pushing through the maltreatment in order to “give ‘em hell.” Traversing through a variety of topics and even including a tribute to blues legend Muddy Waters on “Dynamite,” COPPER serves as an exciting precursor to the talent and artistry of Baba Jenkins. “We want people to have fun when they listen to our music, to get up and dance. And also reflect on how we can help others.”
Through an unexpected meeting with drumming legend, now friend and fan Steve Ferrone, he aired “Dance On Me” in January 2022 followed by “Dynamite (A Tribute to Muddy Waters)” in March on his brilliant monthly program “The New Guy Show” on Sirius XM Tom Petty Radio. At the same time, Cliff Beach on LA radio station 88.5 FM KCSN took a liking as well and played their first single “Rendezvous” on his hot weekly program “Deeper Grooves.”
