"Rawness improbably balanced by a mixture of danger and delicacy," says one Rolling Stone writer, "is what gives Citizen Cope his edge. As a singer, songwriter and producer, he stands alone-an artist immune to corruption."

In the past nine years, he has produced four albums of depth and distinction, each a critical chapter in his search for a sound that paints an auditory American landscape in which despair wars with hope and hope, tied to love, is elusive. 

Cope's musical education was catch-as-catch can. Folk tales-whether through William Faulkner or Big Bill Broonzy-shaped his sensitivity. A few college courses at Texas Tech alternately bored and excited him. In the Austin of the eighties, he took sound classes and found himself fooling with a primitive four-track setup. Turntables intrigued him. He heard hip hop as inspired invention. For years, he got lost in his self-designed lab, cooking up beats and motifs that only later would be shaped into songs.
