Dave Cope & the Sass

Dave Cope & the Sass put out a self-titled album in 2019 with a supergroup of Philly area musicians Dave Cope, Fred Berman, Ethan Rider, Darryl Preston Hill, Alexandra Cutler-Fetkewicz, Sarah Biemuller, and Hannah Taylor which is filled with great danceable tunes inspired by classic artists from the 60s and 70s like the Beatles, the Stones, the Kinks, Bowie, Slade and more. While their lineup has evolved a little over the last year due to the nature of being a working musician in the city and having many obligations to juggle, the current live band lineup includes Dave Cope, Fred Berman, Darryl Preston Hill, Sarah Biemuller, Andy Keenan and John Cunningham.In this interview we talk about a ton of things including Dave Cope's evolution as a singer-songwriter from a more folk-y solo style and his growth over the years into different styles and genres of music. He talks about working with veteran Philly drummer Fred Berman to develop the songs which would end up as part of Dave Cope & the Sass album tracks, and how they were handpicked and came together over months and years of work. Dave and Sarah talk about some of their influences including 90s music and culture, and some other side projects they're working on as well. PLUS, we get some surprises from Dave Cope's past! You'll have to listen to the episode to hear them all!
