Yes, we need to master our new album Rise! But where? We loved mastering Down That Road at Capital Records in LA and it seems like the groove is deep enough and pulling us in that direction again. We'll keep you posted!
Each song from the Green and Root collection depicts a rite of passage delivered with honesty and passion. Together they take their listeners on a journey through universal yet unique life experiences. Departing from an insecure innocence, traveling to deep jungles and dreams within their hearts, they reach a humble ecstatic destination. "I feel like I've developed a lot as a songwriter," Green says. “Multi-Headed Heart, my first album, was more about unrequited love and came from a more naive place. Our second album, Down That Road is more like a book of short stories: the death of my mother, our marriage, the environment, war and peace. Our new album Rise reaches even deeper to more vulnerable universal themes and experiences of love, intimacy and acceptance.”
Their music arrives on the shoulders of many great influences, Joni Mitchell, Sarah McLaughlan and The Smiths to name a few. Green’s soprano voice is clear and refreshing while her melodies are capricious yet with a destination, capturing the ability to surprise without leading you on a wild goose chase. Root pursues Green’s lead vocals with her silky alto harmonies inspired by the impressions left on their young ears by Simon and Garfunkel, Indigo Girls and The Roches. ‘Green and Root are ‘surprisingly original, especially perceptive and undeniably concentrated.”We The People” Sonoma. As a guitar player, Green has developed her own style of playing her Martin HD28. Merging her classical and flamenco training with the influences of Ani DiFranco’s funk rhythm, the popular virtuoso finger styles of Emily Salliers and the beautiful pop sensibilities of the Beatles, she has created her own unique groove of finger, rhythm and chordal technique.
Green Huse and Friends
I will be playing original songs that have not been recorded as well as songs from Down That Road, our (Green and Root) last album. I've been writing a lot this year, so expect some brand new tunes. I will have some special guests and friends joining to round out the show.
Wildcat Canyon Performance
WildCat Canyon is a collective of Musical Artists who have been creating together, and inspiring each other, some for 20 years. Green Huse, Maggie Forti, Emily Shore, Andrea Pritchett, Deb Lane and Shelley Doty. Their songs and musical styles are diverse - covering Americana, Rock, Folk, Jazz, Blues, and Soul - but their themes of seeking come from similar roots of concern for our world, love and family, political activism, self discovery, and hope.
Experiencing any of these artists individually is a cause for deep and joyful listening, but together, as they support each other musically and artistically, the audience is certain to bask in their gorgeous harmonies, thoughtfully well-crafted songs, fun, intelligent banter and exceptional musical grooves!
Tickets are $15 in advance and $18 at the door. Children under 12 are free. Advance tickets are available at the link below, or you may purchase your tickets at the door the night of the show. Doors open one half hour before show time. We accept cash only at the door (ATMs are nearby).
