A long drive during the summertime, out in the countryside, is only complete when you have some cool, classic pop-rock music tuned in! Mark Winters’ Copper Queen from his debut album Slipstream is a sheer example of such a song that is ideal for these moments. Hailing from Texas, USA, Mark is a man of several talents. Besides being a prolific musician, he is an excellent poet and a rocket scientist with a degree in Aerospace, Aeronautical, and Astronautical Engineering.
A soothing, comforting track on the whole, the composition of Mark Winters’ Copper Queen is gentle, relaxing, and a sheer treat to your ears that calms you down entirely. A very minimalistic playing of every instrument somehow adds to the beauty of the song, and you will love how the guitar, drums, and keyboards merge, creating that beautiful atmosphere for the vocals. The voice is exceptionally soul-pleasing, and so are the lyrics of this track! Another beautiful part of this song is the amazingly played guitar solo towards the end of the song. It takes the perfect build-up with an engaging, giving us a few moments of rise within the groove before returning to the chorus and fading out to the song’s completion.
Overall, Mark Winters’ Copper Queen is a song that you will love to listen to once you try it out, and once you do, you will have a hard time not having it playing on a loop. Listen to this track here:
