Copper Wimmin is a trio of outstanding vocalists from Sonoma County who blend intricate rhythms and harmony together with fearless lyrics, creating a stunning and uplifting performance. Influenced by the soulfulness of Sweet Honey in the Rock and the powerhouse rage of Ani Difranco, the group has inspired audiences from coffee houses to concert halls. The members of Copperwimmin' became inseparable after singing together in a center of the Santa Rosa children's chorus. This childhood synergy has forged a body of original music and a unique style that is at once worldly and innocent. These elements combine to create a sound that is much bigger than a sum of its parts, a sound that enraptures and inspires transcendence. They are a cappella as a voice for truth.
