Muze PNote When a singer/songwriter fights the big record label -- in this case Dreamworks -- because the label doesn't understand the artist's vision, then buys back a record so he can find someone else who cares enough to release it, it's admirable and has a "this must be good" allure for sure. One listen to The Clarence Greenwood Recordings and you might have a guess at why Dreamworks said "no." It's a wandering album, one that Greenwood's fan base can connect with, but more difficult for everyone else. The timely "people wanna bomb us" number, "Bullet and a Target," is the album's centerpiece single; it presents a shock-value laundry list of depressing situations, Billy Joel's "We Didn't Start the Fire" for the Dave Matthews generation. Elsewhere a vagrant falls in deep love with a billboard and D'Artagnan meets his match. From there it gets more undecipherable, but it's a record he fought hard for and his fans will love trying to figure it all out. ~ David Jeffries

Artist Overview

Citizen Cope, born Clarence Greenwood in Memphis, purveys a soulful and stirring blend of folk-R&B with laid-back reggaefied beats and the occasional hip-hop flourish. His mastery of both melodic and rhythmic elements, and his expressive everyman voice, make his music appealing to a wide range of listeners, and suitable for various moods. Greenwood first entered the public eye as the DJ for the 1990s rap group Basehead, and by the end of the decade had released his own demos, and appeared on compilations and soundtracks. He was signed to the DreamWorks label in 2000, and garnered even wider attention as the opening act for Nelly Furtado's 2002 tour. He later moved to RCA, where he has released albums to great popular and critical acclaim.
