Copper Leaf is Sawyer Bernath, a musician based in Boulder, Colorado. He writes songs that are often bleak, occasionally redemptive, and usually about memory, aimlessness, and/or girls.  Most of the songs are meant to be sung at someone, not to someone.

His music has been compared to that of Iron & Wine, The Antlers, Frightened Rabbit, and The Beach Boys.  He released his debut album, "Lay Awake", on November 19th, 2016. Bolderbeat had these nice things to say about it:

"...earnestly bare and other times subtle and echoey vocals..."

"...ranging from complex and pretty string melodies, to smooth horn solos, to steady percussive swings."

Outside of music, Sawyer's passions include physics, philosophy, social justice, wilderness hiking, lean manufacturing, and coffee.
