Constantly touring, Jackie Greene has a reputation for putting on an energetic live show and has earned the respect of critics and musicians across the country. While difficult to pigeonhole his music, (frequent comparisons are to Bob Dylan and The Band) there is a consistent influence of Americana Roots Music that runs through the themes in his large musical catalog. At times, his songs are playful – other times they are sorrowful. But always, they are soulful. Greene is musically rooted in the rock and roll tradition, though he is emotionally attached to other forms of American music like country-western and rhythm and blues. Armed with a voice that turns heads and a near-mastery of several instruments, Greene has been dubbed "The Prince of Americana" by The New York Times.
