“New York needs more banjo virtuosos like Baby Copperhead, who takes the banjo off the front porch and into a new and beautiful universe”- THE FASTER TIMES “the banjo visionary, whose specialty is taking the banjo and treating it with a sci-fi glaze.”- WNYC "In Baby Copperhead's hands, the banjo sounds otherworldly, like an instrument from a science-fiction movie. After a couple tracks, you'll forget all about the riff from Deliverance and wake up to the possibilities that Baby Copperhead has just begun to harness." - Paul Constant, THE STRANGER Bio: New York City-based performer, Baby Copperhead, gives audiences around the world a new perspective of "otherworldly" banjo with electronics. People have compared his music to the Silver Apples, Beck, and "Nick Drake abducted by aliens." He often collaborates with world-renowned DJ & ethnomusicologist, DJ/rupture, and their band Nettle. Baby Copperhead has also performed with luminaries Nona Hendryx, Ed Askew, Eugene Chadbourne, Chris Taylor(Grizzly Bear), Jim Campilongo, and many more. Last summer, he collaborated on an ever-evolving multimedia performance piece, Pull My Daisy, with visual artist Brian Zegeer for the Queens Museum International. February 19th, 2013 is the release date of Baby Copperhead’s much anticipated record, Distress From The Milky Way (Territory Punk Records). The album was recorded and mixed by Grammy nominated engineer, Mike Tarantino. It also features veteran cellist Brent Arnold and drummer David Berger.
