Behind the music

You might call Citizen Cope a maverick. A one-man singing, songwriting, producing, DJ-ing, collaborating, genre-defining, Renaissance man with more than a decade of touring and recording under his belt, he’s a rare example of self-determination in an industry notorious for homogenization. In testament to his chops, his music has been covered and recorded by Carlos Santana, Sheryl Crow, Slipknot, Dido, and Richie Havens, to name a few, and his songs have been featured in dozens of T.V. shows and movies. So, even though you might not know it, you’ve almost certainly heard some of his tunes.

Wednesday 1/30 $25-27, 8pm. Jefferson Theater, Downtown Mall. 110 E. Main St. 245-4980.
