Alastair Greene’s musical journey has been anything but traditional. His combination of Blues, Southern Rock, and Jam Band sensibilities have been thrilling audiences fornearly two decades. With recent appearances at the Chicago Blues Festival and the Big Blues Bender in Las Vegas, as well as guest appearances with such luminaries as Eric Burdon, Walter Trout, Coco Montoya, Savoy Brown, John Nemeth, and Debbie Davies, it’s crystal clear,…. his star is on the rise.
Alastair recently plunged headfirst into a full-time solo career, stepping down after 7years touring the world as the guitarist for Rock legend, Alan Parsons. Alastair is philosophical about his time playing with Parsons saying, I’ll always be grateful for the opportunity Alan gave me to handle guitar and vocal duties in his band. It was an honor to play the music created by the Alan Parsons Project to Alan’s fans around the world. After 7 years, the time has come for me to truly pursue my own musical dream.
The culmination of his musical experiences, influences, and passion is manifested as his new record, Dream Train. The album was produced and mixed by David Z whose production credits include Buddy Guy, Gov’t Mule, Kenny Wayne Shepherd and Jonny Lang. The songs range from hard driving Blues Rock to sensitive instrumental.
Dream Train also features an impressive array of special guests including: Walter Trout, Debbie Davies, Mike Zito, Mike Finnigan, and Dennis Gruenling. Alastair is supported on Dream Train by his touring band consisting of Jim Rankin on bass, and Austin Beede on drums.
Imagine a meld of Cream, Johnny Winter, North Mississippi All-Stars, Jimi Hendrix, and Santana and you will have some idea of the music laid down by the Alastair Greene Band. Surely one of the finest Blues-Rock bands on the scene today. (Blues In Britain)
