Citizen Cope is effortless cool, the heat of the Memphis sun, the deep melting pot of the American south, a melding of hip hop and the blues in a way so natural that you have to wonder why no one’s done it before. Songs like Son’s Gonna Rise, Sideways and Bullet And A Target simmer somewhere between haunted and hopeful; the kind of songs that get written because they need to be. Listening to Cope you can hear the steady stir of modern life, the voice of abundant humility and aspiration. Citizen Cope’s writing is refreshingly candid; revealing him as an optimist in an often unfair world. Political, lyrical, poetic, and alive.
This fall, Citizen Cope presents a unique acoustic tour. An even more intimate side of today's most genuine songwriters. Come and see this self realized writer/performer/producer the way that he is, has been, and will be; a man and a guitar.
