Back To Birth is Greene’s first album in five years and he has been on tour non-stop for over a year to support its original release in August 2015. Kicking off in September, the latest leg of Greene’s tour will continue through the end of the year with shows from coast to coast and north to south. The dates will include Greene’s first headlining show at San Francisco’s Warfield Theater for his annual Thanksgiving Weekend show. Coinciding with Greene’s birthday, the annual celebration always includes some surprise guests including, in past years, Phil Lesh, Bob Weir, Tim & Nicki Bluhm, Mark Karan, Jason Crosby, Jeff Chimenti, John Molo, and many more! Other highlights include two nights at New York’s Brooklyn Bowl including a Grateful Dead Appreciation Night, and a return to Sacramento’s Crest Theater on New Year’s Eve with special guests, The Mother Hips.  A complete list of confirmed tour dates are listed below.

Earning his reputation as a musician’s musician, Greene stayed quite busy during the period between his previous album, Til The Light Comes (2010), and Back To Birth. Greene performed frequently as a member of Phil Lesh & Friends, mounted a tour with the trio WRG, consisting of Bob Weir, Black Crowes’ front man Chris Robinson, and himself.  In 2013, he became a member of The Black Crowes playing lead guitar for their Lay Down With Number 13 world tour, their last before disbanding in 2015.  Following the Crowe’s tour, he joined Trigger Hippy with Joan Osborne and Crowe’s drummer Steve Gorman and recorded and released the band’s debut album followed by an extensive tour.

Produced by Los Lobos member Steve Berlin, Back To Birth (Yep Roc) was recorded at Portland’s Supernatural Sound. The deluxe edition includes 15 songs and finds Greene stretching out on a number of instruments including guitar, piano, organ and drums. “A lot of these songs are looking at the notion of a cyclical existence, and the sense that life goes in a circle,” Greene observes. “I want the songs to come from a place that’s meaningful to me, but I also want to keep them as simple and direct as I can. I look at old blues songs, or Hank Williams songs, and they’re so simple and direct but they convey some pretty deep ideas.

Joining The Jackie Greene Band as support on selected dates are The Cordovas and Johnny Irion. Check out the tour dates and other special guests he’s planning, including Bruce Hornsby, John Hammond, Jr., John Oates, as well as one show billed as a special “Grateful Dead Appreciation Night” at the Brooklyn Bowl. The Jackie Greene Band includes longtime associate Nathan Dale (Guitars, Vocals), Fitz Harris (Drums, Vocals) and Jon Cornell (Bass).  In addition to lead vocals and guitars, Greene plays piano and the B3.
