Citizen Cope Biography

Clarence Greenwood, better known as Citizen Cope, is a multi-talented sonic auteur that, in addition to providing lead vocals and production, plays a variety of instruments including guitar, keyboard and drum machines; Greenwood was born in Memphis, Tennessee USA; relocating to Washington, D.C. for high school, in 1992 he became a member of the arty Hip-Hop crew Basehead.

Citizen Cope got its start in the second half of the '90s by recording an indie-disc and some compositions for a series of compilation albums and a couple of movie soundtracks; he caught the ear of Capitol Records, signed with them in 1997 and made an album, "Shotguns", which was never released.
Cope then moved to New York and was signed to DreamWorks who issued "Citizen Cope" in early 2002. About that time, a demo of a new Cope song, "Sideways", was passed to Carlos Santana, who was enchanted with it and asked Cope to produce and sing it for his multi-platinum "Shaman" album.
Booking time at New York City's famed Electric Lady Studios and Central East Studios in Washington, D.C. Cope assembled a crew of musicians to record the band's second album, the RCA debut "The Clarence Greenwood Recordings", an eclectic collection of modern-Rock, Blues and Hip-Hop tunes; the CD included the single "Bullet And A Target", although never embraced by mainstream commercial radio, in 2004, he was seemingly everywhere.

In September 2006 Citizen Cope released his next record, "Every Waking Moment"; by far his most personal recording yet, the album shows Cope continuing his deep exploration of the world that confronts all of us everday. The album, which included the radio-single "Back Together", reached the #69 position on The Billboard 200.

Nearly four years later, in July 2012, the artist scored his first top 40 album with "One Lovely Day".
