Copeland was an American rock band, originally formed in 2001 by singer Aaron Marsh (who also plays the guitar, mellotron, organ, and piano) with his friend, bassist and backup singer James Likeness, in the city of Lakeland, Florida. Aaron Marsh attended a performing arts high school, Harrison Arts Center. Bryan Laurenson, guitarist, and Jonathan Bucklew, drummer (who took the place of Rusty, ex-drummer of Copeland and drummer on ''Beneath Medicine Tree'') give the band an original sound. In 2002, they signed a record deal with independent label The Militia Group and released their debut album ''Beneath Medicine Tree'' a year later. In 2004, 2005, and 2006 they performed at the annual Cornerstone Florida Festival in Orlando, Florida. ''In Motion'', Copeland's second full length CD, was released on March 22, 2005. It was produced by Matt Goldman and Aaron Marsh, and mixed by Ken Andrews. The early copies of In Motion that were issued, included a four-song acoustic ep––a compilation of lo-fi versions of songs from In Motion itself, as well as Beneath Medicine Tree. They are currently on a farewell tour.
