Citizen Cope, the alternative music favorite, will be on the University of North Dakota campus to perform a concert on Saturday, April 28, 2012.
Arranged by the Association of Residence Halls (ARH) Programming Board, Citizen Cope will perform at 8 p.m., at the Chester Fritz Auditorium. Citizens Cope's distinctive mix of R&B, pop, rock, and folk made him an alternative music favorite. His official debut album, Citizen Cope, was released in 2002, while The Clearance Greenwood Recordings followed only two years later. Guest appearances on blockbuster albums by Santana and Dido followed. Citizens Cope's songs such as "Let the Drummer Kick" and "Bullet and a Target" have been featured in a wide array of films, television series and advertisements as well as "Let the Drummer Kick" going gold on the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America) list. Citizen Cope's most recent endeavor has been the start of his own record label, Rainwater Recordings.
