Kate Copeland has been grinding for years to get her music out there. Performing in a variety of projects, including psychedelic band General Mojo's Key Project, Copeland is a restless talent who just wants to be heard. She has also arranged/co-produced singer/songwriter Abakis's album as well as singing/writing for indie folk bands Kate & The Company and Whimsy Gadget. A successful musician in her own right, Copeland has been playing piano, mandolin, and singing since she was five years old. After a successful Kickstarter campaign, it appears her solo debut material is finally on it's way.

Baeble is proud to premiere her new single "My Cruel Tongue". The song starts off with an industrial sounding synth line, before breaking down into a simplified drum rhythm that relies on more guitar feedback than actually riffing. Copeland obviously has been trained in the art of recording, as the production value is extremely high. With background vocals, crucial yet minor instruments floating into the mix, as well as a layered mix creating a lush wall of sound, the intricate element of her music becomes apparent. The song is a lesson in growing up. Admitting, "Now that I'm alone I've come to know/that I should be more careful with the people that I love/the ones I trust, should hold them close/and never do them wrong in any way," you can't help but respect the level of straight forwardness. It is apparent in the lyrical content that Copeland has faced struggle before, but her way of keeping the message simple behind the very complex music is worthy of applaud. Asking, "I wonder if you still the feel the same," as the song is closing, the answer is a resounding no. Copeland will make you think about where you're coming from and how you got there. For an artist, that's getting the job done.

Check out the track below and stay tuned for more information about upcoming album dropping this summer.
