Bryan Copeland has been a fixture in the Springfield music scene since 2010. He started the popular local band Luna J. (Formerly Luna Jamboree) in 2008 and steadily grew that band to regional prominence. In the last five years he has grown his solo career as well, playing over 450 shows over that time. With his band he produced and released three fulls albums, two EP’s, and five singles; and solo he has written, produced and released nine singles, as well as one thirteen song live limited release. The band also spent two years producing Youtube content of their original and cover material that showcases their talents in the ways of pop, alternative, funk, and jam. In 2023, Bryan has continued a busy schedule, releasing three new singles while playing over 130 gigs. His newest single, "Love Design", set for release October 6th, is a sexy groove with flavors of Ed Sheeran and John Mayer.
Bryan has also been the lead singer of three popular tribute projects as well, including: Mother’s Milk “A Red Hot Chili Pepper’s Tribute”, Jason Isbell Tribute, and Continuum “A John Mayer Tribute”. He is known for his variety of covers as well as his original music.
On top of all of that, Bryan has appeared on local and regionally produced TV countless times (The Mystery Hour, Ozarks Live), has been on local and regional radio many times as well, and has opened for blues legend Robert Cray, and regional favorites The Ozark Mountain Daredevils. He was also contacted in 2020 by the talent agency that works for The Voice and he made it through all the preliminary rounds, only to be denied by the producers of the show on the verge of the blind auditions; and most recently turned down an offer to work with a Nashville based record label.
Bryan has always been supportive of his fellow local artists, and when he is not playing a gig, he is usually at show, supporting the scene. His band started a YouTube show called “Words and Whiskey” on their channel to spotlight local and regional artists. That landed the band a sponsorship with local whiskey crafters, Copper Run Distillery; and then after Copper Run went out of business due to the pandemic, he started with Ty Iechyd Da through Springfield Brewing Company; with Bryan doing the interviews and leading song collaborations with local artists. The show is on hiatus for now, but there are plans in the works for a restart.
Bryan has started work on a full length, folk/country style album. Be on the lookout for new music!
