pop/rock singer songwriter
4 MP3 Songs
ROCK: Acoustic, POP: with Live-band Production
Steve Kopandy has been writing and performing for over 12 years and has taken his music as far as the UK, USA and Europe, and as close to home as good old Newcastle Australia. His acoustic driven music is inspired, melodic, easy to listen to and always well produced.
As a young teenager 1991 to 1995, Steve was learning instruments, writing songs and singing in school choirs. Since 1995, Steve has written for and performed in various pop/rock bands, predominantly as the front man for Paperadio, where he gained most of his performing, writing, recording and management experience. Steve has performed to thousands of people and sold over 3000 CDs in Paperadio and other bands, performing from Brisbane to Melbourne and throughout the UK.
He released his first Solo EP in 2003, a collection of six demos, entitled Silver Things. Steve put together a line-up of local friends and began performing around Sydney and Newcastle, promoting the EP and refining his writing and performing.
In October 2003, Steve moved to London with Paperadio and has since been spending plenty of time performing with the band on stages throughout the UK, and working with the highly recognised pop producer Andy Bradfield (Beth Orton, Rufus Wainwright, Manic Street Preachers).
Steve cites Ben Lee and The Thrills as recent influences towards his first studio EP entitled ''Scripted'' (Dec 2004). The EP is acoustic guitar driven with kicked back drums and lots of electric guitar and harmony layers and was produced in Melbourne by David Carr.
In 2005, Steve took his original songs and new EP straight into the West End music clubs in London, playing regularly amongst local and Australian counterparts. It was London that sharpened him up as a performer and a writer - so much inspiration to write in such a big and gloomy city compared to Newcastle. He also spent a lot of time in Continental Europe and has penned songs in Paris, Berlin, Belgrade and Sarajevo, being inspired by these amazing places and people within them.
He left Paperadio in London and returned to Newcastle late in 2005 to be closer to his family and to work with David Carr on what will become his first full length album. With recording already underway, the release is expected to be late 2006.
