How We Started
Kopper and Kash is composed of dad (Jeff Pennycoff) and two daughters with spectacular talents like their father, Mia and Ava Pennycoff.
They share their love of country music with the mission to share positivity & inspiration with others as they continue their rise. Some of their prior releases like “The Best I Can” and their most recent single release, “True Believer,” showcases the group’s nod to country music storytelling in a way that connects with their fans and followers.
The family resides in Pennsylvania and they spend a good amount of their time in Nashville, TN. They have performed at some of the most prestigious Nashville venues including The Bluebird Cafe.
Kopper and Kash were nominated for song of the year at The Central Pennsylvania Music Hall of Fame for their 2020 single, “That Jacket.”
Jeff has been sharing his love of country music with his daughters from the moment they were born, singing to them in their first moments of life. Kopper and Kash are the quintessential American farm family. Jeff introduced the girls to the guitar and his love for traditional country music as they were growing up. Jeff would share songs from country music legends like Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard, George Strait, and Alan Jackson while the girls would sing along.
When Dad needed help on his worship team, Mia and Ava stepped up to the microphone, at the ages of 9 and 10 years old. The girls have been singing alongside their dad every Sunday, in the small church, which is held in their barn which is located on the family farm.
Like any family, life has a way of throwing curve balls. While the family was growing musically and enjoying life, a tragedy nearly derailed them. Matthew, their son and brother, passed away in a traffic accident. Ava & Mia were inspired to follow in her father’s footsteps and started songwriting as a vehicle to express their grief. Despite the tragic events, the family has come together to spread faith, hope and above all love through their music.
Music is very much a part of their healing journey. The band says, “We are hoping to encourage people that love and family is still very real in this world. That even in hard times, you can find support. Music is helping us in the healing process, and we are hoping to share that love and positivity with anyone who needs that faith.” Our new single “True Believer” has resonated with our old fans and new fans. The single has been featured in Guitar Girl, Rolling Stone India, Broadway World and Nashville.com among many others. In March 2023, Kopper and Kash will be releasing their much anticipated fan favorite song, “Bars and Churches”.
