It is near impossible to assign the music of Citizen Cope to a specific genre. An eclectic mix of rock, blues, hip-hop, and folk influences fuse together to form a totally unique, soulful sound. With six albums under his belt and the Rainwater Recording record label to his name, Citizen Cope has victoriously created an entirely new genre of music.
The Wellmont Theater air felt electric with post-Christmas buzz. The crowd of 30-somethings was excited to share a drink with friends and dance the night away as O.A.R. dominated the stage of the Montclair, NJ venue.
