About this event

Moes Alley proudly presents Jackie Greene!Thursday, Feb. 8thDoors: 7pm / Show: 8pm$30 in advance / $35 day of the show21+JACKIE GREENEAmericana and roots singer-songwriter Jackie Greene is a jack-of-all-trades, and an artist who can croon over soulful piano ballads as much as he can shred a bluesy guitar solo (like he did as the lead guitarist for The Black Crowes in 2013). A road warrior and musicians musician, Greenes new EP The Modern Lives Vol 2 (out October 2018 on Blue Rose Music) finds him at a new chapter in his life: his first months of fatherhood, time off his relentless touring circuit, and a cross-country move from Brooklyn to his birthplace of Northern California.This new collection of six original songs is a thematic extension of The Modern Lives Vol 1 EP (released in 2017 on Blue Rose Music), imbued with a Brooklyn basement DIY feel and ethos. He is a student of American music, transfixed upon its progression through time, as well as how regional sounds fit in a contemporary context. Whereas Vol 1 saw Greene experiment with the Delta blues as a canvas for his examinations of modern society, Vol 2 sees Greene embrace the sounds of the bluegrass and folk tapes of his youth.Lead single Crazy Comes Easy showcases Greenes dynamic, multi-instrumental range as he plays slide guitar, organ, bass, and percussion, the guitar licks an appreciative nod to his time in The Black Crowes. Meanwhile, Good Old Bad Times highlights Greene as the songwriter as he rattles off lines like How can somebody find a future? / If they aint got a foothold in the past? while taking a critical eye to the idea of nostalgia. Piano ballad Victim Of The Crime was one of Jackies oldest demos up until the feel of these sessions gave him the tools to finish a song that, in his words, was written for his wife before she was his wife. While the title possesses a kind of melodrama, the song itself is tender and heartfelt as he details loves trials and tribulations.Greene partnered with Acade
