Copper Wimmin

Copper Wimmin

Copper Wimmin are three obstreperous young women who set audiences on fire with their brilliant lyrics, haunting voices and fierce harmonies. They create a sacred hurricane of sound which leaves their audiences spellbound and often, in tears. Creating a buzz wherever they go, these vocal amazons have been singing together since they were twelve years old. They have evolved a sound so moving, so pure, that upon hearing them many recall a collective memory in which women sang together in caves and cathedrals before time began. Copper Wimmin are a sonic epiphany. They weave their voices together so expertly that it is hard to know where one voice ends and the other begins. The combined impact of the arrangements, lyrical content and outrageous stage presence is that of a sublime sledgehammer effortlessly crashing through the door that separates the soulless from the sacred. Also appearing on the Bay Area Regionals stage in 1999, they were also finalists in the Lilith Fair talent search.

Copper Wimmin : American Tyranny

Review: Born of conviction, an indictment of repression and discrimination, and a celebration of female energy and power, "American Tyranny" is unambiguous in its message and intent. Musically, it is best described as modern chant; fundamental harmonic intervals, unembellished arrangements and monophonic textures dominate, created from gut-level emotion that could be termed instinctual. "Euphemism" is a rejection of the dominant white-male paradigm, "Ay Yi" a primal lament. Produced by June Millington, the guitarist of the pioneering women's rock group Fanny.

Copper Wimmin : Etheric Bodies

Review: We have personally enjoyed hearing the three beautiful young women who call themselves Copper Wimmin live at the Bay Area Harmony Sweeps Regionals and West Coast A Cappella Summits. The titles of their powerful, feminist, poetic, beautifully-sung songs are: "Actual Tongue," "Show Us," "Ballad Of The Lonely," "Caboose," "Onje," "Iris," "Candra," "Fish," "Caveman," "Bottle," "Not Silenced" and "Nothing Wrong." The imagery is strong and thought-provoking, as in this line from "Bottle:" "I'm the bottle that everybody shakes, But I never, I never break..." One warning-and this is a first for us, although it's very tastefully done, there is partial nudity on the cover and in all the photos of the group inside the beautiful liner notes. The pure, soaring vocals blend perfectly, adding weight and feeling to what is being sung. "Etheric" is a work of art on many levels!
