Album Notes
Amanda Zelina is The Coppertone.

Zelina was once told while jamming with Blues Icon Billy Gibbons of the band ZZTOP at a local vintage guitar store in Hollywood California " ...You play that guitar mighty fine, you're going to make it...I'll see you again someday I'm sure of it." With a laugh, Amanda explains, "Whether or not he was being honest or simply trying to hit on me didn't matter. happenstance is something I don't believe in. trusting my gut is." and with that mentality "The Coppertone" was born.

The story is this....

Awaking the tenth morning from a haunting recurring dream Zelina knew an album was on the way... In it, she was face to face with a Bull; a creature that exudes strength, confidence, force, and perhaps danger. In the dream she was killed by the bull and than came-to as a reincarnation of the animal...seeing through it's eyes.

A duo comprised of Zelina and Nick Skalkos of the band " Spirits". Live she is joined by the secret third member of the band, Marcone on fuzzed out keyboard bass/ all-around-human-percussion-monster and a back track that triggers Skalkos's Boom Boom-ey analog recorded drums." It's funny because we are always a Duo, in the studio with Nick or on the road with Mike, but really there is three of us."

"This is not a traditional blues record filled with straight up 12 bars and clean influences are from guys like Mississippi Fred Mcdowell, Junior Kimborogh, John Lee Hooker, Son house... blues men who used their fingers to dig into the strings; who held a note for eight bars more than they technically should because it felt right... The blues to me is non restrictive..its a spiritual force, a feeling more than a chord structure. This record is my interpretation of the blues."

With a voice that howls, unapologetic moody fuzzed out guitars, primal drums and lyrics that are soaked in soul The Coppertone is an exciting and refreshing new face to contemporary blues.
