“Super-Sonic Jazz present a reissue of Beverly Glenn-Copeland's self-titled debut album, originally released on the Canadian GRT imprint in 1970. The debut release by Afro-Canadian singer, songwriter, and cult figure within new age experimental sounds, has been long been sought after. The soulful jazz release, was original recorded in 1970 alongside musicians Dough Bush, Don Thompson, Terry Clark, Lenny Breau, Jeremy Steig, and Ray Charles collaborator Doug Riley, aka Dr. Music. Written when she was 26, the album is a testament to Copeland's stand-out songwriting and earnest, beautiful vocal talents, fitting into the realms of spiritual folk. Born into a musical family in Ottawa, Canada, Beverly Glenn-Copeland studied the classical piano repertoire, after being brought up listening to his father's playing at home. Following his studies, Copeland moved on to songwriting, in order to weave all the different musical cultures he had come to love. ” – Forced Exposure

“His robust alto/tenor delivery has a kind of classical breadth and control that’s rare in folk music. And while the persona in the song seems to be a woman singing to a man, it isn’t. Glenn-Copeland identified as a lesbian when he recorded the album; he’s since come out as a trans man. “It’s very hard to see it, but all these love songs were written to women,” Glenn-Copeland told me by phone with a chuckle. “They were all women that I was talking to. And at that time I couldn’t say ‘she,’ so it was veiled. But it’s all there.” – Bandcamp
