Stephie Coplan & the Pedestrians.
Before I entered the strange world of advertising, I was in the even stranger world of music. My band, Stephie Coplan & the Pedestrians, achieved modest success with our 2012 single, "JERK!" We charted at #15 on rock radio, which allowed me to quit my day job, tour the country, and share the stage with some of my favorite bands, like Cake, Grouplove, and Two Door Cinema Club.
Me hearing myself on the radio for the first time.
...and a Christmas single.
My first copywriting assignment at KBS was writing hold music for Windstream, a rural telecom.
Here's a song I wrote, recorded, mixed, and produced to help author Marc Hartzman promote the launch of his historical fiction novel, The Embalmed Head of Oliver Cromwell: A Memoir. It got a shoutout on Huffington Post.
KBS had me write, record, mix, and produce their holiday card in 2015. I customized the lyrics for each of their 28 accounts.
Here are some songs I've written, recorded, mixed, and produced for fun.
