Upcoming Tour Dates
Born in Memphis, spending summer months with his great aunt and uncle in a small west Texas town, while being raised in Washington, DC, Clarence Greenwood aka Citizen Cope grew up influenced by the production techniques of George Martin, Dr. Dre and Willie Mitchell while listening to everything from Willie Nelson, to John Lennon, Bob Marley, Outkast and A TribeCalled Quest.
When Citizen Cope and his four-member band took the Caliroots stage and played the first few riffs of the hip hop infused, “Let the Drummer Kick,” I knew Friday was gonna be a good day at the Monterey mega festival.
KEXP's John Richards takes you along the full journey of a long run with songs of inspiration and fun including the one song he played 13-straight times while running the NY Marathon.
Clarence Greenwood — aka Citizen Cope — is a highly-acclaimed American songwriter, music producer and performer. He’s also a savvy small businessman after years of learning on the road and through multiple mistakes (his words, not ours).
