Alastair Greene in The Gospel lounge
Under 21 with Guardian
Alastair Greene’s musical journey has been anything but traditional. His combination of Blues, Southern Rock, and Jam Band sensibilities has been thrilling audiences for nearly two decades. With recent performances at the Chicago Blues Festival and the Big Blues Bender in Las Vegas as well as recent tours filling in on guitar with Starship featuring Mickey Thomas, and many guest appearances with such luminaries as Eric Burdon, Walter Trout, Coco Montoya, Savoy Brown, John Nemeth, and Debbie Davies, it’s crystal clear,….. Alastair Greene's star is on the rise.
Alastair recently plunged headfirst into a full-time solo career, stepping down after 7 years touring the world as the guitarist for Rock legend, Alan Parsons. Alastair is philosophical about his time playing with Parsons, saying, “I’ll always be grateful for the opportunity Alan gave me to handle guitar and vocal duties in his band. It was an honor to play the music created by the Alan Parsons Project to Alan’s fans around the world. After 8 years, the time has come for me to truly pursue my own musical dream.”
Hot on the heels of Alastair Greene’s critically acclaimed 2017 release Dream Train comes his powerful new album, Live From The 805. Recorded in front of a sold-out hometown crowd in Santa Barbara, California, this album celebrates 20 years of Greene's blues rock power trio with 20 tracks, including original songs drawn from all 5 of his studio records as well as a few choice covers. Alastair Greene has been hailed as one of the best blues rock guitarists of his generation with his band drawing comparisons to Gov’t Mule, ZZ Top, and Cream. Live From The 805 will appeal to fans of Rockin’ Blues, Southern Rock, Jam Bands, and more.
