Northern California singer-songwriter Jackie Greene has played with the Black Crowes and Gov’t Mule, and toured nationally with BB King, Mark Knopfler, Huey Lewis, Buddy Guy, and many more. He’s performed at Bonnaroo, Outside Lands, Gathering of the Vibes, Mountain Jam, and played with Joan Osborne and Steve Gorman in the supergroup Trigger Happy. He’s played alongside the likes of Phil Lesh and Bob Weir, the latter of whom called him “the cowboy poet of Americana and Blues”.
Greene has been recording for over two decades, with a fusion of rock, blues, American folk music, country, and sometimes classic pop. His nine albums are filled with sharp rock songs which don’t just show respect for their inspirations while at the same time give loads of room for personal expression. His new album, ‘The Modern Lives’ Vol 2 is the follow up to last year’s album ‘The Modern Lives’ Vol 1, extends on the ideas on his companion EP, ‘Crazy Comes Easy’.
‘Crazy Comes Easy’, his new single, is a punchy, fiery blues rock piece, with Greene’s vocals refreshingly different. The video stars an older lady whose charisma and exuberance is as vibrant as the clothes she wears. Not just satisfied with being a brightly dressed woman, she’s somehow magical as well, turning the black and white world around her into glorious colour just with the touch of her fingers.
