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 has steadily grown that band to regional prominence. In the last 5 years he has grown his solo career as well, playing over 300 gigs the last 3 years. With his band he has produced and released 3 fulls albums, 2 EP’s, and 5 singles; and solo he has released 3 singles as well, with one more on its way for June 2021. The band also spent 2 years producing Youtube content of their original and cover material that showcases their talents in the ways of pop, alternative, funk, and jam. Bryan has a live, outdoor concert ready for release in 2021 as well, The Campfire Sessions; it will be comprised of 12 original songs stripped down to acoustic guitar and vocals.
Bryan has also been the lead singer of 3 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 toured regionally, 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 (rarely) he is usually at shows trying to support 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 is working on a new album, while continuing his lengthy solo touring schedule in 2023. The plan is to have a new single out by April 2023, and the new album out before the end of the year; the album will feature a mix of styles crafted to fit each song and groove.
