NEW YORK, July 22 /PRNewswire/ -- RCA recording artist Marc Copely is growing into a top favorite at Modern Rock radio (#2 most added), Active Rock radio (#3 most added) and College radio with his first single "Surprise," which garnered 62 adds in its first week and became the #6 most added song at the College format. Copely is currently on tour with The Tragically Hip in support of his recently released LIMITED LIFETIME GUARANTEE. His hometown paper, the Worcester Telegram & Gazette, calls the debut "a triumph of style, as he comfortably structures a diverse batch of songs into a ... cohesive package. LIMITED LIFETIME GUARANTEE gets across the point that Copely is an artist with broad tastes and multiple skills." Robert Doerschuk of AllMusicGuide.com concurs: "The blue-collar spin of the lyrics and undeniable energy of his delivery throughout LIMITED LIFETIME GUARANTEE was enough to position Copely as a working-class hero of stadium-sized potential." It is a prophetic quote about an artist who grew up in a working class town where honesty, integrity and "doing it on your own" was the only path to your dreams. Now a New York City resident, Copely hails from Main South in Worcester, MA where he cut his musical teeth playing an old guitar his parents bought for him at Sears. In his early days, Marc immersed himself in his passion: learning and playing his guitar, reading provocative, and cutting edge literature by authors such as Kerouac, crafting songs and honing his art. He developed this early obsession and passion about music aided by friends of his older brother who further inspired him by introducing the burgeoning young rocker to music by artists like Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, BB King and U2. The result is LIMITED LIFETIME GUARANTEE, a debut that is filled with the romanticism and struggle of a great-American songwriter and guitarist. The collection-produced by David Werner and co-written by Copely and Werner -- is a journey through this artistic awakening. The 11 songs, combine unforgettably hummable choruses with deeply personal themes of jealousy, guilt and love in its purest form. LIMITED LIFETIME GUARANTEE reflects Copely's gritty upbringing as well as his passionate soul. Copely is quickly becoming a critic's favorite; Muze.com had this to say about the songs: "Massachusetts singer-songwriter Marc Copely treads a fine line betweenalternative pop smarts and well-crafted songsmithery on his major labeldebut. LIMITED LIFETIME GUARANTEE is an amalgam of shards of half-remembered '60s riffs, graceful ballads, world-weary lyrics, and the kind of pureromanticism which, if there's any justice in Billboard Chartland, should netthis twenty-something heartthrob a host of willing and able admirers." Adding to the excitement, the video for the first single, "Surprise" was lensed by legendary director Meirt Avis, who is best known for his work with U2 on classic videos such as "With or Without You" and "Where the Streets Have No Name" as well as Bruce Springsteen's "Brilliant Disguise." The clip -- with an underlying theme of a love gone bad -- combines abstract animated images with grainy shots of Copely's guitar playing.
