Chris Colepaugh (Cosmic Crew, Shania Twain...)


CHRIS COLEPAUGH channels the cry of a Gibson doubleneck 12/6 through  an over-driven tube amp in a hard-driving southern-rock groove.  Multi-award winning, international touring and with a fest o’ crunchy guitar licks, Colepaugh will have you air-guitaring all night long.

CHRIS COLEPAUGH has earned critical acclaim for his 2009 album release BURNING and his studio album “In Your Backyard.” The music is drenched in tight blues inspired jams, thick electric guitars, Bonham-esque style drums, massive bass, and soulful songwriting and lyrics.

CHRIS COLEPAUGH has performed at festivals in Canada and the United States including SXSW , CMW, NXNE, NEMO, Evolve, Canadian Music Cafe and have toured extensively with over fifteen national ( CAN & US ) coast-to-coast tours. Part of his US itineraries have included dates with Government Mule, North Mississippi Allstars as well as performances at the House Of Blues, the Hard Rock Café, tours of New England and Southern US, the U.S. West Coast and two tours of Southern California.

He has played drums for Star Académie winner Wilfred LeBouthillier, has toured France, Belgium, Switzerland, and Germany with International Canadian sensation Roch Voisine playing pedal steel, has spent two weeks in Texas at Willie Nelson’s Studio mentoring producer methods with Gordie Johnson, been invited by Gordie Johnson on stage to perform pedal steel and guitar with Grady, and played guitar sessions for artists such as International Daniel Pearl Fiddler Samantha Robichaud, multi-country-award nominees Melanie Morgan and Darcy Mazerolle, francophone artists Anique Granger, Trisha Foster, Jason Lang and local artists such as Melanie Keith and the Strombachs, Robin Anne Ettles, Brendan Furlotte, and many, many more.
