Copper Leaf

We are excited to welcome back this fine local talent for his second Still Cellars appearance!

Copper Leaf is a three-piece band based in Boulder, Colorado. Until recently, Copper Leaf was the solo project of Sawyer Bernath. He writes songs that are often bleak, occasionally redemptive, and usually about memory, aimlessness, and/or girls. Since March of this year, Sawyer has been joined by Liz Berube on vocals, and Eric Dorr on vocals, piano, and lead guitar.

Their music has been compared to that of Iron & Wine, The Antlers, Frightened Rabbit, and The Beach Boys. Copper Leaf’s debut album, “Lay Awake”, was released on November 19th, 2016. Bolderbeat had these nice things to say about it:

“…earnestly bare and other times subtle and echoey vocals…”

“…ranging from complex and pretty string melodies, to smooth horn solos, to steady percussive swings.”

Outside of music, Sawyer’s passions include physics, philosophy, social justice, wilderness hiking, lean manufacturing, and coffee.

The tasting room will be open from 4pm – 8:30ish, and you’re welcome to bring your own snacks/dinner/picnic. There is NO COVER, and tips for the musicians are always appreciated. Copper Leaf will be playing from around 6:30pm-8:30ish.
