If you don’t know much about Kopecky Family Band, you certainly get a great sense of the kind of people they are as soon as you open their new record and see the message from the band that says simply: “We are all in this together“; setting the tone for what is nothing short of a beautifully moving record that is full of life from all angles.
The new album, “Kids Raising Kids”, follows 2010’s ‘Of Epic Proportions‘ EP and was recorded following an exhaustive co-headlining tour with The Lumineers, and performances at Lollapalooza and the Austin City Limits Festival. It is also Kopecky’s first full length studio offering since the band began back in late 2007 when fate brought lead singer Kelsey Kopecky and Kopecky Family Band co-founder Gabe Simon together. As legend has it, once Simon grabbed a guitar, Kelsey was utterly “blown away” by his melodies and since, the pair have gone on to release 3 EP’s as Kopecky Family Band after rounding out their lineup within just months of their first meeting.
