After 3 long years of gestation since his last record, Baby Copperhead and The Stringed Serpents announce the June, 2020 release of his fifth studio album, We Stand Tall. Here lies a web of carefully woven songs with his spidery banjo-driven folk-charm and intricate arrangements for his exuberant string trio and ensemble, now and forever known as The Stringed Serpents. Baby Copperhead had the honor to work closely with co-producer and longtime collaborator, Brent Arnold (Ghost Quartet, Reggie Watts, Modest Mouse), who also played cello on the record.
The first shared single is ‘Feline Feminine’, an intimate tone poem and textural meditation inspired by Baby Copperhead’s comedic cat, Hanamaru.
