Anna Nalick’s fourth studio release, “At Now”, is a collection of pop/alternative and folk/Americana tunes that paint an authentic portrait of the songwriter’s development to date. Visceral poetry and raw storytelling are supported by emotionally rich melodies and production.

A significant portion of our projects here at Copycats Media are CD or DVD replication projects. This means that they are made from a glass master. Typically, the minimum quantity for a replication order is 500 units. But what if you do not need 500 copies of your CD or DVD? That’s when you turn to duplication services.
