Fueled by the similar staples within their collective musical taste, the members of Knox Hamilton blend laid back guitar riffs and catchy bass lines with rhythmic drum beats and soaring vocals to produce a sound that’s as likely to make you want to visit the beach as it is to move your feet.

Raised as a pastor’s sons in Arkansas, Boots and Cobo Copeland discovered music through the timeless, harmony-driven devotionals that filled their father’s church. Buried within concordant melodies is the vibrant bond between Boots and Cobo that propels their writing and enticing stage presence. That brotherly connection, which drives Knox Hamilton, has a degree of intuition to it; a genetic thread. That innate energy encompasses their songwriting.

Knox Hamilton is a band that embraces light and life; celebrating that grace to create a mood and drive a feeling. Every note punctuates an intentional effort to thrive on blooming melodies that last in your mind and create butterflies in your stomach. This isn’t music that plays with skittish vocals, avant-garde notes, and dissonant rhythms just for the sake of it.

One listen to the first single from their debut, The Heights, Washed Up Together, and one could argue they’ve achieved this goal.

The band previously released debut EP How’s Your Mind, featured the runaway single “Work It Out.” The single seemingly climbed out of nowhere to the top of SiriusXM’s Alt18 charts and reached “near-Adele levels on alt-rock radio” (Huffington Post), garnering over 5 million streams on Spotify.

There’s something about the electric, restless rhythm and the shimmery beat that capture a true timely ethos –never too self-conscious to be catchy, never too pop to forgo serious attention to lyricism. With their locomotive, melodic tunes full of synth breaks and booming choruses would echo out into the rural town – in true Knox Hamilton fashion, it was a meeting of both their roots and their far-reaching artistry which is poised to last a long time.
