Tonight, The Green performs at Cervantes’ Other Side. Their two-month U.S. tour includes a mix of headlining and support dates. The Green’s self-titled debut album was named iTunes Best Reggae Album of 2010.
The Green were awarded best reggae album at the 2011 Hawaii Music Awards. They played three shows in February supporting Nas & Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley on the Distant Relatives tour.
Formed in 2009 in Oahu, The Green blends roots reggae with traditional Hawaiian vibes. Their debut album has sold 17,000 copies, and includes the hit song “Love I.”
“There’s plenty of invention, not imitation, which should propel The Green to the stratosphere reserved for few stars” – Honolulu Advertiser
Music has always been a part of my life. It probably all started listening to old Grateful Dead, Peter Paul & Mary, and Simon & Garfunkel records that my parents had, but it wasn't long before they were taking me to concerts like Starship, Crosby, Stills & Nash, and Huey Lewis & The News. I got the bug to write about music after reviewing an Eric Clapton concert for a creative writing project in high school but didn't really take it up seriously until 2002. Since then I have published countless articles in The Marquee Magazine and done some work for Jambase.com, SPIN Magazine, and various other outlets. I started Listen Up Denver! as a way to share the music information that is constantly spilling out of my head with people who care. Please enjoy!
