Yep Roc is pleased to announce that they have signed roots rocker, Jackie Greene. Greene began his career in his mid-teens working the bar and open mic circuit in and around his hometown of Sacramento. Since then, he has recorded seven albums and two EP’s, released a DVD, and published a book of lyrics. Upon witnessing his performance at Bonnaroo, Jon Pareles of The New York Times stated, “Jackie Greene could be the Prince of Americana.”
In addition to his own solo career, Greene has been touring with the Black Crowes since 2013 and has been involved in an ongoing side-project, Trigger Hippy, fronted by both Jackie and Joan Osborne and includes Black Crowes drummer Steve Gorman. He also currently sings and plays guitar in Phil Lesh & Friends.
Greene’s upcoming album is slated to be released in early 2015. You can read more about Jackie in this recent piece from Rolling Stone.
