His songs dance with dreamy winks of Beatles-esque shiver; Crowded House’s Neil Finn (who remains at large); and a majestic dose of Matthew Sweet — all of these things, of course, are Very, Very Good.

Fans of rock-flavored and slightly folkish pop would enjoy hearing Copeland’s hard-to-forget tunes, which he freely admits owe a lot to the stylings of Elton John, Neil Finn (of Crowded House and Split Enz) Billy Joel and, more recently John Mayer.

There’s something to be said for a well-crafted pop song, and this disc is full of them ... Copeland’s voice is true and amiable, with a slight husky edge. With plentiful vocal harmonies, “Circles” is pop flavor with substance.

...the Brian Copeland Band has crafted songs on The B Sides EP that certainly have potential to snag some airtime play, as they are a very relatable brand of a Northwest pop and country fusion...Brian Copeland Band has a talent for crafting songs with relatable and understandable stories.

Classic American songwriting and vocals that are at once both soulful and crisp. Honest music is the best kind, and Brian Copeland’s music is honest.
