It’s been a little less than six weeks since Bad Decision was released, and the reviews are in! I always thought the album was pretty damn good, but now you don’t have to take only my word for it:
“A little sultry, a bit sassy, kinda sexy. Sort of like sipping scotch on the rocks.” – Bruce Winter, WUWM Radio
“Bravo Roxi…I think it’s a good decision to buy Bad Decision!” – Vic DeLorenzo (Drummer for the Violent Femmes)
“The third album by Milwaukee jazz/pop chanteuse Roxi Copland delivers an unlikely mélange of vulnerability, self-reflection, street savvy, humor and sultriness…Copland’s airy arrangements and slowly insinuating melodic hooks, abetted by occasional glimmers of steel guitar, posits her in a space akin to where Norah Jones might have landed had her affinity for country music manifested differently…” – Milwaukee’s Shepherd Express
I can hardly believe it’s only been six weeks since the album dropped and that the Bad Decision Tour is already halfway over. I’ve put another several thousand miles on my trusty tour-mobile, which is handling the craziness that is tour rather admirably (other than the AC’s little hiccup somewhere south of Kansas City, which conveniently happened at the exact same time the temp hit 106).
Speaking of tour, I’ve got a couple important announcements in that department. First – there are currently only two more public tour dates left:
8/17 Jazz in the Park, Milwaukee, WI
8/25 The Alexander Recording Kompany, Ames, IA
The Jazz in the Park show in Milwaukee is free. Tickets to the show in Ames, Iowa are $15, and we’re limiting the number of seats to 25 since the live room of the Alexander Recording Company is an intimate space. If you’re in central Iowa, you don’t want to miss this show – as of today, there are 15 tickets left, so get yours here before they sell out. Complete details on all tour shows can be found at roxicopland.com/tour.
Also, I may be adding a southern leg to the tour September 5th through the 12th. So, if you live in Illinois, Indiana, Missouri, Kentucky, Arkansas, or Tennessee, and you a) have some ideas as to where I should play in your hometown, or b) would like to chat about the possibility of hosting me for a house concert while I’m in the area, get in touch by going to the contact form here at my website. (more info about house concerts here).
And of course, it wouldn’t be a proper post without a few pics from the road:
