Claude Hopper's Cinematic Sounds

MUSIC! - The Sounds of Santa Barbara - November 2009

WALKABOUT with Brett Leigh Dicks

Claude Hopper's Cinematic Sounds


It always seems to be the hard to find things that tend to reap the greatest the rewards. And so it was with the genesis of Claude Hopper. While you couldn't quite pinpoint where the music was coming from during the multi-band extravaganza that was Ollie Festie, you sure could hear it. In fact, the farm that was hosting the event was so well hidden, even the local sheriff had trouble finding the place when summoned in the small hours of the morning to put an end to the festivities. That was almost ten years ago and across the ensuing years, Claude Hopper has thankfully made it much easy to enjoy an intimate encounter with their music.

LIFE, DEATH AND CREDIT CARD DEBT

MONTECITO JOURNAL - February 24, 2005

ON THE BEAT
By Steven Libowitz

LIFE, DEATH AND CREDIT CARD DEBT


"While many could regard his style as intimate or meditative, there's a comedic side to David Cowan's music with such ditties as 'Montecito White Trash Barbecue,' a look back at his days of sharing the hedgerow district with Oprah Winfrey."

Well, here we are again, spinning platters of the year and looking back at the sonic output from the ocean side oasis we call home.

So dig deep into your recession-worn pockets and do your American part to support the (local musicians') economy.

Claude Hopper, Four in the Morning
Claude Hopper, alias guitarist-singer-songwriter-graphic artist Dave Cowan, put out a fine CD this year, which lives up to its title and its cover artwork.

Montecito's Musical Maverick

The Montecito Journal
15-18 March 2001, Issue 88
by Steven Libowitz

Montecito's musical maverick

Right off the bat, it's hard not to like a guy who, when it came time to make his debut album tossed aside his fine, stage-name sounding true moniker, David Cowan, in favor of the rather inglorious Claude Hopper. The main idea was the play on words -- the band's organic, earthy, dirty-acoustic guitar sound recalled the grungy boots Clodhoppers. And Cowan also liked the art world antecedents conjured up by the surname: actor Dennis Hopper, whose off-beat, dark work has been an influence on Cowan, and the American painter Edward Hopper, whose "Nighthawks at the Diner" has been in the inspiration for more than one album cover.
