THIS WEEKS LOCAL LOVE SPOTLIGHT IS
Raised by musically enlightened and ever encouraging parents, Striking Copper’s cradle was rocked by the hands of legends. The band believes music is a way in which to tell a story. It’s not just what the story is about, but it’s how you present it, and how you preserve it. Striking Copper united in hopes to combine their inspirations and original ideas to create a new sound, something they feel helps bridge the gap between Rock, Folk, and Americana.
Led by powerhouse redheaded twin sisters Allie and Jacquie Lee, Striking Copper uses haunting vocal arrangements, accompanied with full volume instruments, delivering a lasting, melodic sound. The band is rounded out with Matthew Donnelly (vocals, rhythm guitar), Daniel Bennett (lead guitar), Joseph Dail (bass guitar) and Frank Cacciutto (drums). Based out of Wilmington, NC, Striking Copper’s music draws from humanity, embodies strength in vulnerability and authors homage to home.
