Citizen Cope

My new favorite song "Brother Lee". Sa zicem ca un spot e bun daca il simti intr-un fel. Unii simt imaginea, unii - ca mine simt muzica. Si vad altfel spotul. Oricum nu imi pasa ce produs se vinde de fapt. Ma intereseaza sa fie bine filmat, lumina buna, actor muzica. Muzica mi se pare definitorie. Mai ca mi-as face un abonament:))

Citizen Cope - The band is led by Clarence Greenwood. "Citizen Cope" is a pseudonym of Clarence Greenwood, keyboardist, guitarist, singer, DJ, and record producer, and the name of the band that he leads. Citizen Cope now lives in Brooklyn, New York.Born in Memphis, Tennessee, Greenwood started his musical career as a DJ for the hip hop act Basehead, a group that would have a significant impact on his style as a solo-musician. Citizen Cope blends many genres of music, such as folk, blues, hip hop, rock, and R & B. Greenwood first released a demo tape under the name Cope Citizen in the late '90s. He would follow up the release of the demo by donating songs to several independently issued compilations, movie soundtracks, as well as appearing on several fellow artist's albums.In 2000 Greenwood signed with the DreamWorks Records label, which released his first album in September 2002, Citizen Cope. Greenwood toured to promote the record as an opener for Nelly Furtado. He performed at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in Indio, California, in 2002.After the release of Citizen Cope, Greenwood felt the label "mishandled" the record, creating tension between the two. The tension prompted Greenwood to buy out his contract with the label, using the advance he received from his next label, Arista Records and RCA Records, to do so.In September of 2004, Citizen Cope released his second record, The Clarence Greenwood Recordings, which earned him much critical success as well as minor touring success as an opening act for a popular touring band, Robert Randolph & the Family Band.
