Throughout a fifty-year recording career, legendary singer, composer and transgender activist Beverly GlennCopeland’s music has defied categorisation and genre, its only consistency being the extraordinary fusion of vision, technology, spirituality and place. Now in his mid-70s, Glenn-Copeland was born into a musical family and studied the classical piano repertoire from ‘cradlehood’, listening to his father playing the piano four to five hours a day. He moved from his home-town of Philadelphia to study classical music at McGill University,
Montreal in 1961 (focussing on the European song repertoire) before he suddenly felt called to write music that would weave influences from the myriad musical cultures he had come to love. Newly signed to Transgressive, this career-spanning collection of songs includes three previously unreleased tracks; ‘River Dreams’, written last year and released with the album announcement, the live versions of ‘Deep River’ and ‘Colour Of Anyhow’, in addition to studio tracks from his acclaimed masterpiece ‘Keyboard Fantasies’ and more. This is the start of a full Beverly Glenn-Copeland campaign, going into 2021 and beyond. Details of further releases to follow soon. LP format is pressed on heavyweight black vinyl housed inside a beautiful gatefold sleeve with spot gloss to the cover. Inside is a bonus 7” (also black vinyl) and code to download all tracks, including those that are on the CD (‘A Little Talk’ and ‘Erzili’)
