“Jackie Greene could be the prince of Americana.” – The New York Times
On March 6, roots rocker Jackie Greene kicks off the first leg of his “Forever, I’m A Gonna Wander” tour at the Center for the Arts in Grass Valley, CA. Performing select songs from his Yep Roc Records debut, Back To Birth, out August 25, the 12-city run culminates with two performances at SXSW in Austin, TX, and a six-night residency at Sweetwater Music Hall in Mill Valley, CA. Full list of dates attached. The tour will continue throughout 2015, with additional dates to be announced.
Featuring two songs from the forthcoming new album, an exclusive 7-inch, Light Up Your Window, will be available April 18 as a Record Store Day limited edition. A live performance of the track is the third installment of the year for Yep Roc Music Group’s Sawyer Sessions and premiered today. Check it out here.
“Light Up Your Window” was a song that I started writing on the road,” says Greene. “I was listening to old country stuff at the time and wrote it as a two-step country song, but it quickly morphed into the funky album version once we got in the studio.”
Of the new album he told Rolling Stone, “There are a lot of serious, emotionally-charged songs, and quite a few ballads,” Greene says. “So my goal is to keep the arrangements simple and present the songs in a very honest way. I want to avoid any trickery. That’s what I call it when a record sounds a little too fancy.”
Since beginning his career working the bar and open mic circuit in and around his hometown of Sacramento, Greene has recorded seven albums and two EPs, released a DVD, and published a book of lyrics.
In addition to his solo career, Greene is a member of Trigger Hippy, fronted by both he and Joan Osborne, and includes Black Crowes drummer Steve Gorman. Greene often sings and plays guitar in Phil Lesh & Friends, and in 2013 played lead guitar with the Black Crowes on their 2013 World Tour.

A lot of people have been asking about what’s going on with Jackie’s shows this year. As most of you know already, Jackie is out on the road playing as a member of the Black Crowes. It’s a great tour that will hit all corners of the globe and will continue through the end of the year. So, that’s keeping Jackie pretty busy. Jackie will be doing his own shows here and there, however, during the breaks in the Crowes tour. There won’t be many opportunities to see Jackie in 2013 so we hope to see you at one of the few shows …
- June 7 – Jackson, CA : Jackson Rancheria Casino
- June 9 – Hunter, NY: Mountain Jam Festival
- August 24 – Sacramento, CA: Fairytale Town Benefit
- August 25 - Chico, CA: Paradise Performing Arts Theater
