Two nights! Tuesday's more electric.
Singer-songwriter-bluesman Jackie Greene's heroes are Bob Dylan and Tom Waits, and he has what those two have: an outward relaxed casualness that is really a monster talent, and a blues voice and instrumental technique that form the foundation of a new stage of roots songwrtiting. "We live in such a fast-paced, hectic environment, I wanted to make a record that would invite people to step back and take their time to listen," Jackie says of "Back to Birth," his first album in five years. "I wanted to make a record that would reward people who are willing to sit down and give it a couple of serious listens." The 11-song set showcases the multitalented artist’s uncanny knack for synthesizing his deep affinity for American roots styles into timeless, personally charged music.
