COPUS is an acronym for Creation Of Peace Under Stars.

The world beat ensemble is more than just a band – it is a vision.

A vision founded by well-known Bay Area poet/spoken word artist Royal Kent and award-winning composer/pianist Wendy Loomis.

The vision is expressed through conscious lyrics and beautiful melodies.

Even though 13 years have passed since the last full-length album “Later Than You Think”, COPUS never missed a beat.

Refining the new material to perfection.

It is and will always be about the vision, creation of peace under stars.
