On 'Escape Through The Trees', their first CD on Drip Audio, Copilots have captured a sound that is familiar, unique, eclectic and cohesive, tapping deep into elements of pop, psychedelic, punk and classic rock. Escape Through The Trees documents the group moving forward into new sonic territory from it’s original release, further exploring the talents of the band members' gifted songwriting and musicianship.

Copilots
are a five piece rock band from Vancouver, BC. Formed in 2005, their debut self-titled (2007) CD received glowing reviews across Canada. The band is Skye Brooks - guitar/vocals (Inhabitants, Fond of Tigers, Veda Hille, Ndidi Onukwulu), Pete Schmitt - bass/vocals (Inhabitants, Josh Martinez), Chad MacQuarrie - guitar/vocals (DarkBlueWorld, NOW Orchestra, Carol Pope), Karma Sohn - keys/vocals & Dylan Smith - drums. There is an interesting history to some of these Copilots as Skye Brooks is known for his explosive drumming skills with his JUNO nominated band Inhabitants and the genre-busting Fond of Tigers. Skye also regularly backs up unique songstresses such as Veda Hille, Ndidi Onukwulu & Jill Barber. With Copilots Skye picks up the guitar and steps in front of the mic. Chad MacQuarrie once led the critically acclaimed hardcore band Karen Foster that now backs up Carol Pope on her Western Canadian dates.

These musicians backgrounds are equally rooted in creative/improvised music as well as the many facets of rock and roll. Their adventurous spirit reveals itself in memorable melodies, propulsive and seamless odd time rhythms, and dream-like lyrisism that explores the subconsious, human nature and the power of wilderness. A restrained intensity simmers throughout their performances, at times boiling over into ecstactic abandon.


Press:

“...psychedelic, anthemic and fierce.” - The Province (Vancouver)

"...engagingly off-kilter rock." - Exclaim!

"...a loud rock exercise filtered through the keen ears and eyes of warped musicians more in tune with improv then the ol' verse-chorus-verse model." - Hour (Montreal)

"...a cracking little record." - Soundproof Magazine (**** stars)

“...a welcome combination of tightly structured songs and the urgency that arises when a group approaches it's sonic canvas without fear...” – Vue Weekly

“Copilots deliver a bright message of hope in a way that is authentic, rocking, and never precious.” - Music Emissions

"...fuses subtle yet never subdued psychedelic melodies with some of the most pungent riffage Canada’s west coast has ever played host to." - Skope Mag

"Powerful in punch and huge in sound... Copilots have made a self-assured and strong sophomore album that should not go unnoticed." - Discorder
