Citizen Cope Plays the Rialto Saturday Night

Posted By on Fri, Jan 27, 2012 at 3:00 PM

The word "raw" doesn't even begin to describe the musical style of Clarence Greenwood, aka Citizen Cope.

Though he has been compared to artists like Neil Young and Van Morrison, Cope's music has that "different" but brilliant style—the kind you don't hear every day. And while his music is often classified as blues or soft rock, it doesn't seem to mimic anything in particular. It's a mixed-genre of its own.

Cope plays songs that you can't help but bob your head and tap your foot to. He writes lyrics that someone would purposely choose to listen to because they sound real and emotional.

Don't miss his stop in Tucson on Saturday at 8 p.m. For ticket info, visit the Rialto Theatre website.
