Little Boxes

by Steph Copeland + Freek van Workum

musicismyradar Review - 31st March saw Canadian Steph Copeland unleash her brand new single Little Boxes and it’s a sheer piece of perfection. Luscious lyrics had me hooked from the word go and then you had Steph’s chilled out sugary sweet vocal tones resulting in something rather hypnotising. Fresh/ funky Little Boxes was a well crafted masterpiece.

From Canadian film composer Steph Copeland comes Public Panic, a new electronic-pop album that personifies an alter ego and gives mass consumerism a casual thrashing.

"Maybe theres something that you know and I don't/And you're sparing me/I'm numb and euphoric/I should thank you for it/But it's scaring me..." - lyrics from "Machines"

Public Panic premiered on, and as Copeland makes a leap from feature films to electro-pop, she is receiving praise from listeners who play the album on repeat.

"Public Panic is a flawless, deep and moody recording from phenomenal songwriter Steph Copeland. It is easily one of the most vibe-filled and top albums of 2015!" - Joao Carvalho

Combining lyrical storytelling with cinematic arrangements, Public Panic combines gliding synths and silky electric guitar in modern ballads like 'Nadia' and 'Hit Me Where It Hurts' ride along with slow dropping snares from lush live drums, recorded with producer Matt Rideout in a dome-shaped church. 'Hannah' ,inspired by the H.W. Longfellow poem There Was A Little Girl, explores the alter ego: "I've got a curl/In the middle of my forehead/And when I'm good I'm very very good/But when I'm bad/I'm very very...",

The dreamy 'Highways'  and warbling synth instrumental  in 'Secret' prelude a heartfelt conclusion to the album  in 'I'll Never Let You Go,' rich with love and offering resolution, for an emotional and uplifting long playing record.



It is common for established artists in the pop-rock field to later turn to writing for film, but Steph Copeland has taken the reverse route. She is a composer for feature films (Antisocial 1 and 2, Let Her Out, Bed of The Dead, Ejecta, Bite) and commercials for PanAm Games and BOSE, but the classically-trained vocalist now ventures into the electro-pop realm as a solo artist with her debut album Public Panic. 

Born and raised in Chatham-Kent Ontario, Steph emerged as an electronic artist in Detroit and Los Angeles in the early 2000's. She toured the California coastline with fellow artists hailing from Detroit where she spent time growing as an electronic producer and performing on a solo stage.

In March of 2016, Copeland signed with NY based publisher Memory Lane Music Group and writes for POP and EDM artists in addition to writing and producing her own material. Copeland is a member of the Screen Composers Guild of Canada, with roots at The Royal Conservatory of Music, and continues to score films and perform shows in the GTA where she resides.
