Citizen Cope to Play Solo Acoustic Performance at Merriam Theater, 10/18

After a decade of touring, song writing, storytelling, and evolution, Citizen Cope presents an evening of solo, acoustic work in Philadelphia at the Merriam Theater on Friday, October 18 at 8 p.m. A self-realized musical, poetic and production entity over past nine years, Citizen Cope has released four albums-Rain Water, Every Waking Moment, and The Clarence Greenwood Recordings, to name a few- each of remarkable depth and distinction that paints an auditory American landscape in which despair wars with hope and hope, tied to love, is elusive.

Tickets for Citizen Cope are available from $35 to $39.50 by calling 215-893-1999, online at kimmelcenter.org, at the KimMel Center box office, Broad & Spruce streets (open daily 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.).

Dug deep into the rich soil of American music, Citizen Cope's roots take inspiration from Bill Withers, Neil Young, John Lee Hooker, Van Morrison, Willie Nelson and Al Green. As a troubadour, Cope is a one-man band, trying to make sense of all the nonsense that marks the 21st Century, relentlessly crisscrossing the land as a master storyteller exposing all that haunts his heart. Born Clarence Greenwood, a child of the seventies, Citizen Cope is the radically mashed-up product of Greenville, Mississippi; Memphis, Tennessee; Vernon, Texas; Austin, Texas; Washington, D.C.; and Brooklyn, New York. These locations are felt everywhere in his stories. His sounds are southern rural, big sky lonely, concrete urban, and painfully romantic.
