To folk for pop, to pop for blues, too blues for folk, but then who needs to fit into a box when you can sing and write songs like Paul Greene.
A wordsmith with a gift for melody, Greene cleverly weaves a complex sonic tapestry with a 12 String, a Fender Jag, a Harmonica and a home made stomp box made out of a paint tin lid.
He’s had quite a career with 8 highly acclaimed albums, an ARIA finalist, and collaborations with Rob Hirst frommidnight oil and also filling in as Spy V Spy front man while Craig Bloxom takes extended leave.. and all as an independent artist.
This year will be a busy one for Greene as he launches his record label ‘Red Shelf Records’, dropping singles from 5 different creative projects about as diverse as you could possibly imagine. New Spy V Spy songs; a collaboration with Santa Monica based Japanese producer Edward Deering called ‘Bright Dust’, a country album with his Bush Poet / Mechanic Col Defries Under the name ‘The Fat Nomads’; a new ‘Paul Greene & The Other Colours release and a soul / funk project ‘The Corner Pockets.’
That’s Quite a bit to get your head around, but If you get to the Stag and Hunter on April 8, I’m sure it will not just make sense – it’ll be a darn good show!
