I played last night in Winston-Salem, NC at Foothills Brewing and YES! WEEKLY preview the show (included in my interview and Begin the Glimmer album review). John Adamian writes, “The music leans toward the energy of power-pop, but Chopek keeps things reined in, never letting the speed and muscle get the better of the songs.” Read more here…
I'm excited to announce the release TODAY of my new album, Begin the Glimmer! You can hear it on the MUSIC page (or from your favorite online listening platforms). Recorded Harry Koniditsiotis at 5 and Dime Recording in Memphis, TN. Mixed by Doug Easley at New School Media (also in Memphis). Mastered by Tom Miller at Tritone Studios in Clayton, NC. Art by Matt DiLeo and design by Kerri Mahoney. The Memphis Flyer writes, "it sports one perfectly crafted tune after another; the end result is a shimmering folk-pop gem that leaps from the speakers". YES! Weekly says, “the music leans toward the energy of power-pop, but Chopek keeps things reined in, never letting the speed and muscle get the better of the songs”. Thank you for listening!!

I saw Nine Inch Nails at The Orpheum Theatre last night in Memphis, TN. The performance was epic and amazing. I’ve been listening to them for a long time, and this was my first show. Seeing them live made me realize why I like Trent Reznor’s music so much. It’s a beautiful balance of electronica, minimalist composition, and thrash metal.
A minute to learn. A lifetime to master.
