Wil Cope


Dirty Baby Wil is the new moniker of American singer/songwriter Wil Cope. Cope moved to Austin eleven years ago from Nashville (although hailing from Dayton, OH) and has been performing and recording his own brand of cosmic country / indie folk rock ever since. High and lonesome. Heartbroken. Dark and desert dusted. Restlessness and regret. These are all words that have been used when describing his unique Texas American Voice.

Low Down gutter tumbled ballads hinging on the singers nasal drawl but there is an ineffable charm and undeniably sharp songwriting buried in the raw no-fi production.

If anyone rightly and appropriately carries the torch of Townes and Blaze in this town it is Cope.
