A rare mix of energy delivered with uncommon subtlety - moody and expressive modern rock.
With an eye toward tight arrangements and sparse instrumentation, Copper Dalton's music is an urgent brand of melodic modern rock.

Joe Tristano (lead vocals, guitar), Chris Feil (drums), and Charlie Bonnell (bass) have been creating music together for the past decade. Their story showcases the humor, conflict, and ultimate growth that resulted from forging a unique voice for the band.

From their first, dangerously wired P.A. system, which Bonnell claims shocked him clear across their rehearsal room, to creative obstacles, both personal and stylistic, the members of Copper Dalton have remained committed to the challenges of the craft. "Copper Dalton has been the lure for us," says Tristano. "We have been drawn to it, it's ensnared us, and we've served each other through the band."

Since their first CD's release, Copper Dalton's been busy putting the finishing touches on their second full-length album, while continuing to record other artists for their label, QSP Records. In addition, they've penned a song for the film "Remedy", directed by Christian Maelen.

"Music is something that got under our skin when we were just kids," Tristano adds. "We're grateful to be able to give back to that tradition."

"Emotional desperation and gut bucket vocals...well within the same ballpark as million-selling acts" - Al Muzer, the Aquarian Weekly

"Jangly guitars, raspy vocals, and a heart as big as a prairie...a passion and an integrity that I found very winning." - Jim Testa, Jersey Beat
