Green Mind presents JOSH ROUSE

With Brill Building wit, and a Midwestern sense of melancholy Josh Rouse has built a career that spans almost 25 years, reaching back to his acclaimed 1998 debut “Dressed Up Like Nebraska” and continuing to his breakthrough albums “1972” and “Nashville”. His well-crafted and hook-laden tracks are coupled with closely-detailed, well-observed vignettes in his lyrics.

Now passing 50, Josh faces the next phase of his life. “I remember seeing Tom Waits on the cover of a magazine with the headline ‘Tom Waits at 50’.” Josh recalls “I was in my twenties and that seemed so far off… but he made a great record (“Mule Variations”) and I hope I have too.”

Green Mind presents ANGÉLICA GARCIA

Green Mind presents ANGÉLICA GARCIA

With roots in El Monte, California, and Richmond, Virginia, Angelica Garcia’s sound formed as an amalgamation of a bicoastal Southern experience. As Garcia moved locations, her songs followed suit, sometimes switching from noise pop to the textured polyrhythms of Latin America and vocal production inspired by ambient electronica. She has previously been featured on NPR’s Tiny Desk, NY Times year-end lists, and on Barack Obama’s annual best-of music list for her song “Jícama”.

Her most recent EP, 2021’s “Echo Eléctrico”, is a testament to her Salvadoran-Mexican-American heritage and an expression of her vocal study of Alternative Rock, Pop, and Ranchera styles. A completely a cappella album, “Echo Eléctrico” especially showcases the carefully constructed world of Angélica’s vocal production style.

The upcoming iteration of Garcia’s work brings her to Brooklyn, NY. After working closely with Carlos Arévalo (Chicano Batman) on her forthcoming album, to be released on Partisan Records, she eagerly experiments with closing the divide between her many identities. She released recent single “Y Grito” in conjunction with a feature in Apple’s annual keynote, followed by a feature in Apple TV’s launch of their Major League Soccer partnership. The future of her storytelling lies in harnessing the power of tradition and alchemizing it into the present, singing about the intersection of spirit and body.

Green Mind presents DOMINIE HOOPER

Simmering memory and unspoken truth righteously seethe in songs with tenderness, anger and startling leaps of joy and optimism. To see it live is to truly feel it. Dominie Hooper, long-time session musician, collaborator and multi-instrumentalist, takes flight in the centre of a stage wrapped in musical alchemy with bandmate mainstays Phil Self and Dave Hamblett.

Her folk-steeped debut EP “Anno” was described as “beautiful, challenging, fruitful… captivating” (Liverpool Sound & Vision), and “confident and impressive” (Fatea Magazine), and was triumphantly celebrated with a sell-out debut headline tour in June 2022.

Green Mind presents RYLEY WALKER
Sep 25 @ 7:00 pm – 11:00 pm
Green Mind presents RYLEY WALKER

Ryley Walker began his career in the early 2010s, after moving from Illinois’ provincial town of Rockford, and settling into Chicago’s independent scene. After a slew of cassette and vinyl releases, Tompkins Square put out his debut album in 2014, which was then followed up by the Dead Oceans-released “Primrose Green” a year later. His most recent album, “Course in Fable”, was released on his own Husky Pants Recordings label in 2021.

Having toured with the likes of Richard Thompson, and with a supporting slot for Dinosaur Jr. forthcoming – as well as a tremendous Bert Jansch tribute show behind him, wherein his hero Anne Briggs called him the ‘c word’ – Walker has rubbed shoulders with the very best.

While, in the past, his desire to be as great as his influences may have dogged and hindered him from bringing his own personality to his music, now, Walker’s music is undeniably his. A mix of Twitter and sobriety may be partially responsible. “Music is an exciting thing I get to do because I’m alive and well. I take every opportunity I’m given very seriously; I’ve gotta pay tribute to that by staying alive and being as good to the people who love me as I can,” he said.

Green Mind presents TOM McRAE

Tom’s 9th studio album is an album of duets with some of his favourite French artists. McRae decided to collaborate on these 11 new songs with various artists as a way of acknowledging his deep love of French music, and deepen his relationship with mainland Europe, following Britain’s disastrous decision to leave the EU.

Tom’s debut album went Gold in France in 2001, selling over 60,000 copies, and he has divided his time between Paris and Wiltshire since 2021. Says Tom: “I grew up being intrigued by classic French songs. Before streaming services made all music readily available, only the huge crossover pop songs made it across the channel, but while my friends were listening to Vanessa Paradis, I was listening to Serge Gainsbourg. It seemed exotic, adventurous, and to be from another planet, let alone a country only 21 miles away from my own.”
