Citizen Cope hits the road for select solo and full-band gigs

Why See Citizen Cope?

Genre is no object

Citizen Cope has been pursuing his laid-back brand of hip-hop inflected rock for over a decade now. He began his music career as a DJ for Washington rap collective Basehead, and his R 'n' B inclinations have stayed with him throughout his solo work, creating a beat-driven sound that was way ahead of its time. Citizen Cope has been pursuing his laid-back brand of hip-hop inflected rock for over a decade now. This year he's heading out on the road to play several solo acoustic dates, followed by concert with his full band in tow.

His seminal record, The Clarence Greenwood Recordings, was released over a decade ago but still remains his most impressive achievement, a record which blends together reggae grooves, East Coast beats and intimate lyricism into a complete whole. Among its highlights are "Son's Gonna Rise" which features Carlos Santana providing some sunny guitar lines, and "Bullet and a Target", which tackled gun violence and terrorism in its stream of consciousness verses.

Catch him live when he plays St. George Theatre in Staten Island, NY, Closed November 4, 2017.
