Chip Greene’s métier is matters of the heart. That alone doesn’t make him an original, but his meticulous examination of all the intricacies of a relationship is a great deal more detail-oriented than average. Hailing from Nashville, TN, Greene pens wistful tales of love and loss. His classic approach to melody is updated with layers of electronic textures, yielding atmospheric pop gems.
A talent that grew from a pre-teen passion into a life calling was raised by top-shelf song-writing influences from Joel to Springsteen, with the energy and emotion of U2 or Coldplay. Drawing on both the garage rock of Ryan Adams and the desperate, gorgeous melancholy of Aimee Mann, Greene digs deeply into a world of of determinate, piercing and powerful thoughts. His alternative edge and classic, epic sound have earned him an ever-growing fan base and applause-worthy merit.
Greene’s emotionally candid songs have charted in CMJ, been featured on SiriusXM and heard in projects by MTV, Sprite, Delta Airlines, Eddie Bauer and more. He’s played everywhere from SXSW to NXNE, at some of the best venues around, including Rockwood Music Hall (New York), Smith’s Olde Bar (Atlanta), World Cafe Live (Philadelphia) and Cameron House (Toronto). He is a long-time volunteer piano teacher for children from low-income families at Nashville’s W.O. Smith Community Music School, and is a regular performer for the Songs for Kids Foundation. Greene proudly endorses Nord Keyboards.
