The Green – Black & White (Easy Star Records, 2019)
Successful Hawaii-based reggae band The Green has recreated some of its most iconic songs in an acoustic format. Their new album Black & White showcases a totally different version of the popular band, with acoustic guitars that add a blues and folk music element to their otherwise reggae sound. However, The Green still stands out with its rich vocal harmonies that are so popular with its fans.
Black & White features a different, yet captivating side of reggae, incorporating acoustic soul, pop and blues. Guitarist and singer JP Kennedy explains: “We really liked the idea of taking a previously recorded song and stripping it down to a few key elements. Less is more.”
