Copilot (Live Band)
You’d be hard-pressed to define Copilot. The Massachusetts-based group are made up of powerhouse vocalist Maggie Quealy, charismatic frontman Ry McDonald, bassist Austin Beveridge, and drummer Dylan Allwine. Together, Copilot aren’t so much making music as they are crafting an experience. Sure, you can call them Americana because of their twangy harmonies or even pop thanks to their danceable beats, but maybe nouns aren’t quite right. Adjectives, on the other hand, might do them justice.
In-your-face. Energetic. Powerful. Catchy. Melodic. Refreshing. Versatile vocals drive the band: a soulful ache, a ferocious howl, a buttery croon. Instrumental camaraderie is important too: foot-stomping percussion, quiet guitar lines, twinkling rhythms. Copilot’s real talent lies in skillfully mixing and matching these elements to cultivate the perfect package of retro-pop goodness that does not just suggest repeat playings but demands it.
