Album Notes
Copper Wimmin, met in a childrens chorus at the age of twelve. Sophia Mallie, Tenaya Wallach and Alyx Benham grew up best of friends and began writing and performing their own songs in their late teens. The group's name "Copper Wimmin" originates from the book "The Daughters of Copper Woman" by Anne Cameron. The book is a collection of creation legends from indigenous peoples of Canada. According to one legend, the first woman on earth was Copper Woman.

The vocal trio from the San Francisco bay area was officially formed in 1994 and they released their first and second CDs in 1998, and 2001. They were finalists in the Lilith Fair Talent Search, silver medallists at the 2003 Harmony Sweepstakes, and semi-finalists in the 2003 Independent Music World Series. Recently they were featured on Amy Goodman's national public radio program "Democracy Now".

These three vocal virtuosos leave audiences large and small with the sense of having witnessed something extraordinary. Moving mountains three pebbles at a time aptly describes the ever-changing, pulsating vibrancyof their fiery brand of social consciousness. They continue to be committed to building a community, sharing a message of healing and helping to ignite social change.

While comparisons to Ani DiFranco and
Sweet Honey in the Rock are flattering, diverse influences and taste dictate a sound that is
unparalleled in current folk and popular music.

Brilliant vocalists
Brilliant vocalists & artists... Copper Wimmin is a rare, unknown gem

This CD flows from start to finish and is more a mixture of poetry, art and 3 heart-breakingly beaautiful voices then just another CD for the collection. Great to listen to while practicing yoga or meditation.


This is an amazing CD. Most of it is carried by the incredible strong vocals og the Copper Wimmin. My favorites are Bleding Rivers and Winter Bleak both of which are alomost only vocal song. First breath is also a favorite og mine.
The Cd is full of powerful spiritual song, that feels soothing to the ear, mind and soul. You can feel there´s alot of wisdom behind the songs.
Last i want to say that CD baby, delivered fast and the cd was unharmed, even though the distance was great.

Beautifully haunting, enchanting, and seamlessly composed
This CD is the next best thing to being there (or here)! I've listened to the Copper Wimmin live on a number of wonderful occasions and this CD captures there beautiful harmonies, molodies, and ecstatic waves of light. The best of folk, acapella, and rock combined. Buy it, use it, love it!


Some extraordinary songs on this CD
I have seen Copper Wimmin perform and loved them.
Although all the songs are thoughtfully put together, my three favorite songs on the CD are the last three on the CD. My favorite song is "Love Song"--it is so beautiful. It makes for a wonderful and romantic love song but on a deeper level to me it is a song about cherishing the sweetness of my soul's inner love for myself.


delightfully rich ear candy
Their voices are from another dimension, the harmony flawless. This CD takes me to places I never thought I could go...can't stop listening to it! "Music washes from the soul the dust of everyday life" and "The Right To Be Here" does just that! I highly recommend it!!!!!


This CD is absolutely wonderful....almost ethereal in the harmonies. The lyrics are thoughtful, thought-provoking as well as fun. These three wimmin have captured the true essence of soul-filled music. I look forward to their next concert.

"The right to be here" is gonna make his way to my "most listened CD of the moment" and maybe of the year (let's see what the following months will offer us!).Wonderful job with the harmonics, I listen to this CD more and more and i always find new notes or vocal effects i haven't hear before.
Please keep singing Copper Wimmin !!


Voices that ring in your ears!
This CD is lyrical, topical and electric. The voices of these women mix in an eerily siren-like blend. Lyrics and melodies that drift in and out of your brain long after hearing!


voices that go together like chocolate & peanut butter
all i know is that i listened to this cd every night when i went to sleep in my tent at the michigan womyn's music festival, and it lulled me into some of the sweetest sleep with the nicest dreams....'freon blue' is a mindblowingly great song that finds its way into my head all the time. the layering of voices is stupendous, and the lyrics are haunting. get this cd! and go see them live if you can!


This CD is amazing. I've never heard anything like it. I especially love "Oasis". Every song is just beautiful.
