Citizen Cope Announces Summer Tour With O.A.R.

Citizen Cope is thrilled to announce a national summer tour with O.A.R. The tour will begin July 8th in Indianapolis, IN and finish up August 15th in Atlanta, GA. Full tour dates are listed below.

The new record from Citizen Cope aka Clarence Greenwood is titled The RainWater LP. As on his two records prior, The RainWater LP was produced by Greenwood himself. The RainWater LP is his first record in nearly four years and the first on his own label, RainWater Recordings, Inc. Cope’s new album has garnered him an appearance on The Ellen Show, as well as raves in the press.

[Citizen Cope’s] music has a complexity that emerges from his sense of rhythm and gift for wordplay… his lyrics are by turns novelistic, poetic, political, violent, and tender.” – Wall Street Journal

We swoon over Cope’s ragged, reggae-tinged vocals and dig his infusion of folk, rock, blues, and hip hop.” – American Way

The RainWater LP, a laidback gumbo of acoustic blues, singer/songwriter rock ‘n’ roll and deep soul grooves, was recorded over the course of 2009 at both Brooklyn Recording in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn, and The Document Room in Malibu, CA, with extensive periods of touring in between sessions. Among the musicians accompanying him this time were such studio stars as bassist Preston Crump (OutKast, Organized Noize, Raphael Saadiq), keyboardist James Poyser (D’Angelo, The Roots, Jill Scott, John Legend), percussionist Bashiri Johnson (Whitney Houston, Donald Fagen, Madonna), legendary go-go bassist Michael “Funky Ned” Neal and top DC-scene go-go drummer Paul “Buggy” Edwards.
