Kopecky (formerly the Kopecky Family Band) is an American indie-rock band formed out of Nashville, Tennessee in 2007. The band consists of Kelsey Kopecky (vocals, keyboards, and bass), Gabe 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). Their debut album, Kids Raising Kids, was released in October 2012 and then rereleased by ATO Records in April 2013
Kopecky Family Band: Kids Raising Kids. Written By Kelly Dearmore // April 1, 2013. A fine example of this chamber-rock evolution can be found in the Kopecky Family Band’s album Kids Raising Kids. Initially released in the fall of last year, the young, exuberant act caught the ears of ATO Records, who’s now re-releasing the album from the six-piece outfit led by Kelsey Kopecky and Gabe Simon. The vocals are the well-laid foundation that makes instrumental acrobatics more suited for success.

ATO Records, the artist-friendly indie label founded by Dave Matthews, signed the Kopecky Family Band to a recording contract, and in April 2013, they released their debut, Kids Raising Kids. By this time, they were hard at work on their second album, and Drug for the Modern Age was released in June of 2015.
With the impending release of Kids Raising Kids, the band is offering the firstsingle Heartbeat as a free download. Heartbeat, with its ethereal instrumentation, hand claps and percussive piano exemplifies the laid back, yet progressive nature of Kids Raising Kids. It showcases the lack of fear the band has trying different routes in their pursuit to find the best way to finish a song, taking advantage of their technical prowess while embracing simpler options when the song calls for it. If pressed to classify the band’s sound, Gabe will describe it as a modern, more aggressive Fleetwood. Perhaps most notably Paste Magazine named Kopecky Family Band the best live band of 2011. As the band prepares to release Kids Raising Kids, stay tuned for much more exciting news from the KFB camp.
