COPPERHEAD JONES: ANCHOR
A unique, smooth sounding Texas country singer-songwriter, Copperhead Jones first started writing songs in 2012 while deployed with the United States Navy. Living in various places throughout his adult life has given him the ability to write songs that cover not only the true feel of the country way of life but also the shine of the city lights atmosphere. Well rounded, deep thinking and heartfelt lyrics, along with his own unique sound, not only crafted the foundation for the album but also bridges the gap between any state line boundaries of music. Copperhead Jones independently released his debut single, No One Givin' Up in December 2021 followed by his debut 13 song album titled “Anchor” in September 2022. "ANCHOR" VERSE 1 Why do we stay lost at sea Never seeing a clear horizon ahead My thoughts turn to sadness How do I stop this madness As the waves build and swell around my head VERSE 2 Why does the boredom set in Never know when my watch will end My thoughts turn to sadness How do I stop this madness As the waves break and crash within my head CHORUS 1 Another lost sailor carrying an anchor Chained to every thought Another lost sailor carrying an anchor It's not difficult But it shouldn't be this hard VERSE 3 How did I get found at sea With a new course ahead My thoughts still turn to sadness But there is no more madness As the waves slowly calm within my head BRIDGE I've learned to sail to another voice I've learned to sail for another choice The winds will come The tides will show The way to be happy Is to make others so CHORUS 2 Another lost sailor carrying an anchor Chained to every thought Another lost sailor carrying an anchor It's not difficult But it shouldn't be this hard END Just another lost sailor Carrying an anchor From memories I'll never forget Another lost sailor Carrying an anchor Always treading water But never getting wet
What are your favorite lyrics from your latest single? "The way to be happy is to make others so" What kind of pull did you feel about making the single? The pull with this single drives from my battle with depression in the US Navy. This is a message about my experience with depression and the hopefulness felt coming out on the other side of it. Are all your writing sessions collaborative or do you go off on your own? Do you have a preference? All of my writing sessions start off as independent and depending on the flow I will finish on my own or bring it to my writing partner C.W. Duncan. Anchor was first written as a collaboration with him and I really prefer that approach. Do you ever compare the work you bring to the table? No song is alike so I wouldn't say I compare them apples to apples however I do compare songs on how good they are overall and how popular I think they might be. What is standard practice when it comes to if the song is really finished? There really is no standard practice if a song is really finished. This is more of an intangible feeling of completeness or not. What was the goal for making the latest track? The goal for the latest track "Anchor" is to bring mental health / depression awareness and to provide hope and connection to those currently struggling with these issues. Challenges to the new music that no one would know about? The biggest challenge to new music is capturing the ideas into the perfect lyrics under the time constraints in a song. Favorite memory in the making of this music? When this song was written it was actually done over the phone late at night 1000 miles apart as I went into detail with my buddy C.W. the experiences I had with the Navy and depression. Is there anything off the table when it comes to bringing yourselves into your music? No. There is no stone we wont turn but that doesnt mean the end result will be good but we will always give a song a chance regardless of subject matter. Leave us on a high note! And share some good news! Some late breaking news is that I have been steadily rising in the Texas country music charts with "Anchor" and I think it will be the highest charted yet.
