FRIDAY, OCTOBER 27, 9PM
American Myth is the new album from the acclaimed young singer/songwriter JACKIE GREENE, and includes thirteen new songs written by Greene and produced by Steve Berlin of Los Lobos (Rickie Lee Jones, Susan Tedeschi). American Myth features multi-instrumentalist Greene on vocals, guitars, dobro, piano, harmonica, and percussion. He’s also joined by a top-notch band of Pete Thomas (drums, percussion, trash can), Davey Faragher (vocals, bass), both of whom are members of Elvis Costello's longtime group, The Imposters; and Val McCallum (vocals, guitars, banjo, slide guitar, baritone). Steve Berlin also contributes with turns on mellotron, vibes, and percussion, and the whole group is joined by a number of guest musicians including a slamming horn section on four of the album's tracks. From the swamp-like feel of the anthemic opener "Hollywood," the record rolls right into the rollicking "So Hard To Find My Way." Greene shows off his range by cranking it up on the in-your-face "I'm So Gone" and the heartland rock of "Farewell, So Long, Goodbye" and dialing it back on the album's meditative "Love Song 2 a.m." and the wistful "Never Satisfied." Greene's inspired songwriting, mastery of wordplay, and flawless composition technique are showcased throughout American Myth. Nowhere is that more evident than on the exquisite "Supersede," a catchy, melodic epic. Other standout tunes on the album are the powerful blues-soaked rocker "Cold Black Devil/14 Miles," and the plaintive "When You're Walking Away." With the release of American Myth, Greene continues with his active tour schedule, bringing his captivating live performance to venues across the nation.
