Tour Update: Bonnaroo!
Just got a last-minute tour addition that I wanted to let you know about. I'll be playing at the Love Hope Strength tent in Planet Roo at the 2012 Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival! If you've never heard of Love Hope Strength, they are the world's leading rock & roll cancer foundation, and I've been involved with them for a few years. Their work was recently featured in Billboard Magazine. My set will be immediately following the Radiohead performance on Friday night. If you're going to be at Bonnaroo, please drop by and learn more about this great organization! I've been having the time of my life on the road this spring. Looking forward to more great shows this summer, including the awesome Black Potatoe Music Festival (yes, it's spelled that way) in New Jersey. Thanks for coming to these shows. I couldn't do it without you! Will post pics soon! Chip
Spring Tour 2012
Wanted to let you know that I'm hitting the road this week, starting with a hometown gig at Kimbro's. I'll be touring mainly in the northeast on this leg, with stops everywhere from DC to Boston, and several points in-between. Expect more dates to be anounced soon. Next I'll set my sights on the west coast. Finally!
This is my first extended solo acoustic tour... No band, no percussion... Just me at the keyboard, the way the songs were originally written. I'll be trying out some new stuff on the road, as I finish up songs for the next album. Come help me decide which ones are the keepers!
Oh, and download the official Chip Greene app for both iPhone & Android! I'm giving Björk a run for her money... Okay, she's killing me, but mine's still pretty cool! Tell me what you think.
Thanks for all the support. See you out there!
Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays!
I want to take a moment to thank you for making 2011 a really great year! I worked with some amazing musicians, played killer rooms in Toronto, Austin, Chicago, New York & many more, released the Have Mercy! live EP, was part of an amazing project supporting tsunami relief efforts in Japan called Songs of Love for Japan, received features in Under the Radar magazine and Delta Airlines In-flight Entertainment, among others, and had the good fortune to have a song used in a new promotional video by Eddie Bauer. All of these cool things would not be possible without a lot of help from you. I appreciate the support more than you know.
Some of you also know that this has also been a challenging year for me, medically. Without going into too much detail, I've had one surgery on my sinuses, and may require another. This is messing with my head, literally, and the bills are racking up. To be blunt, I just don't sound or feel very good, so you probably won't see as many shows from me until I get this straightened out. I appreciate the encouragement I've gotten, and would offer that if you've ever thought about downloading music from me, but haven't gotten around to it, I could use the help right now. I'm reluctant to talk about this at all, but I figured I owed you at least some explanation as to why I've gone into hiding!
I hope everyone is enjoying a great holiday season. As I mentioned above, Delta is playing me on their in-flight entertainment throughout the month of December... So if you're flying Delta on your holiday travels, look me up on the Independent Music Channel (8A)!
All my best for a happy & healthy 2012! See you soon!
