Fiery, masterful blues rocker Alastair Greene has just released ALIVE IN THE NEW WORLD produced by Tab Benoit for Benoit's Whiskey Bayou Records. ALIVE IN THE NEW WORLD finds the fast-rising blues-rocker performing ten songs as a power trio with multi-instrumentalist Benoit on drums and bassist Corey Duplechin during a six-night “Takeover” at the City Winery in Chicago. The sold-out crowds infuse the band with the kind of energy that produces timeless performances, and Greene, whom Blues Music Magazine calls “a major talent in the blues rock category,” more than rises to the occasion. Greene affirms, “Enjoy your front row seat to what I consider some of my finest live moments as a blues rock musician.”
Alastair Greene’s rock credentials include eight years of international touring on guitar and vocals with the Alan Parsons Project, and major dates with Starship featuring Mickey Thomas; as a blues player he is a longtime regular and host at the Memphis-based Blues Foundation events, performances and showcases, has been a featured performer at the Big Blues Bender and the Legendary Rhythm & Blues Cruise, and criss-crossed the globe touring with Sugaray Rayford’s band, which was nominated for a 2020 Blues Music Award with Greene. Most recently, Greene has been touring cross-country in support of Tab Benoit, and also with his own power trio, The Alastair Greene Band, and in May Greene is headed to the UK supporting Walter Trout.
Greene is a multi-charting Top 10 Billboard artist. The Alastair Greene Band, which has drawn comparisons to Gov’t Mule, ZZ Top and Cream, recently celebrated their 20th anniversary with a two-disc live album. Alastair Greene's new album ALIVE IN THE NEW WORLD produced by Tab Benoit is available worldwide on CD and all digital/streaming via Whiskey Bayou Records.
