Neil Carswell was the singer and former frontman of the well-known Southern rock band “Copperhead.” Accomplished both on stage and in the studio, Neil’s career includes national touring and the release of the 1992 Copperhead album for PolyGram/Mercury Records produced by legendary producer, the late Tom Dowd. Although Copperhead had major national success, it disbanded in 1995. Fans of the hard rockin’ southern band still follow Neil’s career and enjoy the metamorphosis of this artist and his two solo releases “Good Man’s Journey” and “Keep You Guessing.”

Neil passed away peacefully in his hometown of Morganton, North Carolina at the age of 55 in January 2024. Neil left his mark on the world and will be remembered as a great talent, a wonderful person, and a great friend and family member. He will be sorely missed but never forgotten.

Carswell has that roughly hewn southern whiskey vocal style that makes all the words come across with maximum impact. I mean you can really ‘feel’ it when he sings. He has a little help from his friends too. Johnny Neel (keyboards, Allman Bros.), Barry Goudreau (guitar, Boston), Stu Kimball (guitar, Bob Dylan), and Chris Anderson (guitar, The Outlaws), lend their experience and tasteful playing to the mix.
