Chuck Copenace is coming off a busy summer and heading into a busy fall. The Ojibway jazz musician based out of Winnipeg has recentily hit stages for the TD Winnipeg International Jazz Festival, Aboriginal Day Live, ManyFest, and more after releasing his latest recording, EP 1. Copenace is no stranger to the live stage, having performed all across the country and in the U.S., including working with the likes of Moses Mayes, Burnt Project 1, Nathan, and Indian City. Copenace formed his own groove-based jazz project in 2015 to perform his original music, inspired by R'nB, funk, hip hop and Classical music.
