Roxi Copland Transcends Genres with "Truth Be Told"

Singer, songwriter, and pianist Roxi Copland performs a rendition of her song "Heavy Load" in the WUWM studio.

With her powerfully raw vocals, a light coat of cherry-red lipstick, and dark curls, Jazz/pop musician Roxi Copland joins Bruce Winter in the WUWM@Nite studio, to talk and perform some songs from her new album, "Truth Be Told.” The album, her first record including a full band, features both gritty tracks like Heavy Load and softer, smoother tracks like that of Don’t Give Up On Me.

Everybody has one. It may be that third grade bully. It could be the neighbor with the yappy dog. Or maybe it’s simply Wisconsin winter. Big or small, we all have a nemesis - an adversary, opponent, foe.

Travels with Frankie Lee

After 15 years on the move, Minneapolis's Frankie Lee has released his first collection of songs. The EP is titled Middle West, and Lee will be performing selections from it this Friday at Anodyne Coffee in Walker's Point.
