Blues singer/songwriter, with a twist, Jacob Green becomes “OneManGreenBand”, stompbox under foot, harmonica upon neck, strumming instruments tirelessly touring the country. Whether Green plays guitar, banjo, dobro, or ukulele, he forms rhythm, percussion, and lead simultaneously transforming into “OneManGreenBand”. Green’s harvests a resonance of the modern day gypsy, awakening original roots and blues folk songs, he spins the once “down-trodden” old-fashioned blues lyrics, to positive riffs of change and “be green”. His versatile homegrown, organic, original sound brings a fresh approach to old-school roots and blues folk music.
Newly releasing his first volume of trilogy series, Roots Revival, he self –records and produces all of his music under Growth Productions. Green produces music of natural acoustic sound, with reverberations of numerous genres, and encourages messages of being kind and conscious of self and the environment. Growing and seeking supporters with a desire to hear original music with a feel good organic sound, Green’s moving rhythms and captivating melody, brews bona fide homegrown music.
From classic rock to punk, blues to hip hop, rockabilly to country, hippy to backwoods groundbreaking musicians, all have a seed in growing Green’s desire to craft quality music. Green’s passion for music does not go without admiration to singer/songwriters, such as Townes Van Zandt, Steve Earle, John Lennon, and Todd Snider, and one man band performers, like Xavier Rudd.
Music came easily to him early in life, with interest in making rap music, playing violin in middle school orchestra, and playing guitar in high school punk band. In adulthood, he was drawn to acoustic singer/songwriters and raw sound; he began to lead bands, such as “Green n’ the Grit”, a rock n’ blues band, “Infinite Nature”, featuring tones of hip hop and reggae groove, to “River Water Tribe”, a gypsy-grass band with punk and blues influence. Playing in bands or solo, Green continuously writes and records new material from a rambler’s point of view, bringing a newfound narrative of “go green” and respect one another are lively notes from Green’s highway, byway, back road blues.
