Jazz Artist of the Year

Wisconsin Area Music Industry (WAMI) April 2016

Nominee for “Best Female Vocalist”

Milwaukee’s Shepherd Express Best of 2015

“The tunes are smooth, refreshing, belying an unuttered and approachable complexity…Critics struggle to put Copland’s music into one musical genre, and Truth makes that effort even more pleasantly confounding. Much of Copland’s success is due to her ability to blur genre boundaries and embrace myriad styles of music on a single recording. With this full-length album, Copland ups the ante.”

Band Bombshell, May 2014

“The undeniable fact is that Roxi Copland can sing. With the kind of ability that puts italics in your voice when you talk about it. Sing.”

Wisconsin Area Music Industry (WAMI) April 2013

“Roxi Copland has got a gorgeous set of pipes – her voice is big, sultry and rich…if you’re going to pump out an album that’s just you and a baby grand, you’re counting on your voice to do all the heavy lifting. And Copland’s is clearly up to the task…There’s no doubt Copland lends herself easily to intimacy…Her voice is full and lush, and her piano work is top-notch…A solo show with Copland is like a conversation with a close friend.”
