Chad Copelin


Chad Copelin is a producer, engineer, instrumentalist, and songwriter from Norman, Oklahoma who got his start playing in local bands and majoring in music composition. After three years of school, Copelin left to collaborate with various musicians, tour nationally, and engineer and produce local bands. In 2005, he opened Blackwatch Studios with co-owner Jarod Evans and produced his first full length album, I Am Haunted, I Am Alive by Beau Jenning’s project Cheyenne.

Copelin’s attention to detail and tasteful production began to garner attention from a diverse mix of musicians. He has since gone on to engineer music for pop artists Christina Perri, Avril Lavigne, Train, Kelly Clarkson, and Third Eye Blind, as well as produce and engineer indie artists such as Sufjan Stevens, Ben Rector, Ivan And Alyosha, Bronze Radio Return, Emily Hearn, BRONCHO, and Other Lives, among others. In 2011 Copelin worked on Christina Perri’s Top 40 song “A Thousand Years” that went on to receive six platinum records. In 2013 Copelin produced two out of the top ten records on iTunes “Best of 2013.”

Copelin’s most recent projects include engineering Sufjan Steven’s highly anticipated album, Carrie and Lowell along with recording and producing Broncho’s Just Enough Hip to Be a Woman and Ivan & Alyosha’s It’s All Just Pretend.
