Copper Rose (Linda Evans) & Bone (James Anthony) formed this band in 2005, with the idea of creating music that has an electric energy to feed the spirit with the beauty of the arts through the vibration of sound. We began this musical venture together having met one another while working in the DC Funk Band Osiris. Some time later after bearing witness to the death of a young man in the community as a result of street violence, we become involved with non-profit organizations, working, for almost 10 years, with at-risk youth through music and theater using the arts as a positive weapon for change. The Copper Rose & Bone Band has been nominated for the Mayors Arts Awards, DMV Awards and received The Men Of Mark & Women Builders Outstanding Leadership Award from Cease Fire Don't Smoke The Brothers & Sisters & Universal Madness presented by the Boxing Great Keith Holms. In addition Copper Rose & Bone recieved the 2017 DMV Stand Out Award for DMV Entertainer. The Group has a release entitled Remedy with Downloads available on iTunes & Apple Music.
