CopperWire

Bio

CopperWire is a music and transmedia storytelling collaboration by three American artists of Ethiopian descent: hip hop artists Gabriel Teodros (Seattle), Burntface (Oakland), and singer-songwriter Meklit Hadero (San Francisco). Their debut album - a hip hop space opera Earthbound co-produced by the trio with Chris Coniglio - was released in 2012.

When Meklit Hadero, Gabriel Teodros and Burntface, aka Ellias Fullmore, met in the studio to see what happened, well, so many great songs tumbled out so fast, and the creative connection proved so strong, that the three knew there was no looking back on their journey... Earthbound.

That’s the CopperWire effect. Copper—the most common of metals, yet far from ordinary. Coiled together, these three artists have discovered themselves to be a vessel, a conduit that transmits a creative power greater than themselves—one that zaps through the barriers of genre and geography that would label and divide them, and for which they have no use.

Their vantage point: Outer space. Like other visionaries before them—Sun Ra, Parliament-Funkadelic, David Bowie, Octavia Butler—CopperWire step off the surface of the planet, claim their extra-terrestrial roots, the better to make sense of our world and engage it humanely.
