Nashville's Kopecky Family Band isn't a family in the specific sense, but a close community of friends who generate a kind of diversely instrumented and melodic folk-pop together. Founded by Kelsey Kopecky and Gabe Simon in 2007 after a dorm room jam, the group eventually stabilized with a lineup of Kopecky (vocals, keyboards, and bass), Simon (vocals, guitar, and horns), Steven Holmes (guitar, lap steel guitar), David Krohn (drums), Markus Midkiff (cello, guitar, and keyboards), and Corey Oxendine (bass, guitar, and horns), and it's a versatile group, with members often switching to different instruments, all of which gives the Kopecky Family Band a broad sonic palette. The band released three EPs, Embraces (2008) and The Disaster and Of Epic Proportions (both in 2010), before signing with ATO Records and issuing a debut full-length album, Kids Raising Kids, in the spring of 2013.

"The most immediate comparison one is likely to make in describing fresh-faced local power-popper Evan P. Donohue is to Elvis Costello. And the reason isn’t just the glasses. Like the early material of the bespectacled king of brainy geek-rock, Donohue’s songs are literate hyper-pop anthems for the brokenhearted. The biggest difference is that where Costello espoused a palpable anger and bravado in his songwriting, Donohue has a carefree air of romanticism to his lovelorn pining. Fans of nervy awk-rock from favorites of the Stiff Records catalog to pre-Y2K Weezer should take notice." - Nashville Scene
