These three vocal amazons leave audiences large and small with the sense of having witnessed something extraordinary. Moving mountains three pebbles at a time aptly describes the ever changing, pulsating vibrancy of their fiery brand of social consciousness. 

Copper Wimmin met in a children's chorus at the age of twelve. Sophia Mallie, Kiranjot Kaur, and Alyx Autuori grew up best friends and began writing and performing their own songs in their late teens. The groups name 'Copper Wimmin' originates from the book 'The Daughters of Copper Woman' by Anne Cameron. The book is a collection of creation legends from indigenous peoples of Canada. According to one legend, the first woman on earth was Copper Woman. 

The vocal trio from Sonoma County, CA, was officially formed in 1995 and they released their 3 albums in 1998, 2001,and 2005. They were finalists in the Lilith Fair Talent search, and silver medalists in the A cappella Harmony sweepstakes, where they also won first place for best original song and arrangement. They were featured on Amy Goodmans NPR program Democracy Now, and were the recipients of the 2006 Isadora Duncan Dance award for best musical score in collaboration with Dance Brigade. Copper Wimmin has shared the stage with Jason Mraz, Bobbi McFerron, Holly Near and others. In 2006, their song "Bleeding Rivers" was featured on the Showtime television series 'The L Word.'
