Acoustic Guitar Sessions Presents Jackie Greene

Screen-Shot-2015-09-03-at-12.23.19-PM.png Impossible to pigeonhole, Northern California singer-songwriter Jackie Greene is all over the map stylistically, drawing from folk, blues, R&B, gospel, and pop/rock influences—sometimes in the same song—and blending them into a unique amalgam. He’s equally comfortable playing solo acoustic or screaming electric with a full band, and he brings an unmistakable authority and authenticity to everything he touches. It’s no wonder he has been tapped to collaborate with everyone from former Grateful Dead members Phil Lesh and Bob Weir to the Black Crowes, Levon Helm, Govt. Mule, and so many others. His latest album is called Back to Birth, produced by Los Lobos’ Steve Berlin, who also worked on two of Greene’s best discs, American Myth and Giving Up the Ghost. When Jackie bopped by for this AG Session, he elected to play a couple of songs from the new album, “Light Up Your Window” and “A Face Among the Crowd,” plus his soulful cover of the Dead’s “Sugaree.” You can see more Jackie Greene in our earlier Session with Trigger Hippy, featuring Jackie and singer Joan Osborne. - See more at:
