Biography

From their first down-beat in 2002, through tours with Bob Dylan and Willie Nelson, The Greencards have won hearts and acclaim for their multi-dimensional Americana vision.

Their new album, Sweetheart of the Sun produced by Gary Paczosa (John Prine, Alison Krauss, Sarah Jarosz) is filled with songs that reference water, along with the often-related concepts of motion and travel. The ... Read more in Amazon's The Greencards Store

Editorial Reviews

The Greencards are an acoustic phenomenon who have toured with Bob Dylan and Willie Nelson, Rosanne Cash, Kasey Chambers, Robert Earl Keen, and more. They're one of the most tested, versatile, and mesmerizing live acts on the road today and took Best New Band at the Austin Music Awards in 2004. Although they create some of the finest Americana around, they're not American. The band consists of one Englishman and two Australians. "Viridian" bridges the gap between traditional bluegrass, newgrass, and the jamband world.

If anyone needs proof that two Aussies and a Pom can play great bluegrass just listen to The Greencards.

They blend their superior individual talents to produce a unique sound and engaging performance.

Playing Time - 44:04 -- Warm, comforting and as smooth as suede, "Viridian" has shimmering music that is like rays of sunlight reflecting from a serene lake on a breezy summer day. From Australia and Great Britain, the spunky trio that now makes their home in Nashville (via Austin, Tx.) previously released two albums and toured with Bob Dylan and Willie Nelson in the 2000s. More than emerging troubadours, the mysterious and fascinating Greencards have arrived with an electrifying neotraditional alt-folk sound. They used to be more rooted in bluegrass, but their music is evolving into their very own sumptuous contemporary Americana styling. Perhaps that is why they call the album "Viridian," a durable bluish-green pigment. Because the trio has endured, they also display added cohesion these days.

Nominated by CMA Australia for "Best Female Vocalist," Carol Young has a torchy voice with seductive charm. She also plays electric bass. "River of Sand" and "I Don't Want To Lose You" are mesmerizing and crowning moments on this album. From Adelaide, Kym Warner has won four consecutive Australian mandolin championships from 1994-1997. He also plays bouzouki on this project. Warner's "All The Way From Italy" documents his family's emigration from Italy to Australia. From London, red-headed fiddler Eamon McLoughlin was classically trained at London's Royal School of Music and has toured with the Austin Lounge Lizards. McLoughlin based "When I Was In Love With You" on a English poem by A.E. Housman, and the song melds punk-era simplicity with the magic of classic folk traditionalism.

The first two CD's were wonderful ( Five star ), but on a scale of 1 to 10, I would rate this CD a 11+. The Greencards just get better and better. This CD has about everything an album could ask for. Just enough slow material and then they crank it up with some great picking. The vocals are as perfect as you can get. Carol Young is one of the best female vocalist out there today, bar none. Emmon and Kim join in for great harmony and lead singing, plus their playing is incredible. This band is fast becoming the best of New Grass since the New Grass Revival split up. Buy this CD if you love great music. It will have you patting your foot and singing along.

Another solid album from this young and talented group. Delicate vocals with matched harmonies, driving bluegrass coupled with Americana roots folk music. The Greencards continue to evolve and attract new audiences, but this CD will continue to satisfy their dedicated fans around the globe. Hard to pick a favorite, but rest assured, you might find it eventually, but in the meantime keep listening to this great CD in its entirity...it's hard to imagine that anyone could get tired of listening to this CD over and over.

Format: Audio CD
I first heard them on a folk station.

I found them under "Rock and Pop" at the record store where I bought the CD.

When iTunes pulls up the CD, they call it country.

A local venue where they're coming in concert (yes, I have tickets!) is calling them newgrass.

Confused yet? I'm calling them eclectic. Honestly, if you like the music of Alison Krauss and Union Station, Nickel Creek, and Fairport Convention, you're going to probably thank me for suggesting this CD. At least give the tracks a listen and make a decision for yourself.

Carol Young, the lead vocalist, has a light, sweet voice that some folks have likened to Sandy Denny, the late Fairport vocalist. The instrumentation is acoustic and flowing.

As for the tracks, "Who Knows" sounds like alternative country with the tight harmonies, swirling fiddle, and solid picking.

"All the Way from Italy" is a sweet tribute to an immigrant ancestor.

The Irish feeling instrumental, "Mucky the Duck," was nominated for the Grammy for Best Country Instrumental Performance. I challenge you to listen to this particular song without wanting to get up and dance a jig. Instrumentals don't usually get a lot of replay around here, but this is one happy tune that sees a lot of play here.

All the rest falls all around this basic matrix in varying speeds and keys. "Viridian" is a lot like Texas weather--if you don't like what you're getting, stick around, it'll change--and some of it could literally blow you away!

So many fine artists get lost or shortchanged because the powers-that-be feel the need to file all artists within narrowly defined categories. Are The Greencards a Bluegrass band? A Country band? A Folk band? How about Americana? (whatever that is) As you search the music racks around the U.S. you'll find them filed under all of these labels. Whatever kind of music you feel is your "style" go and buy this CD.
Two Aussies, a Brit and (recently added) a young guitar phenom from Atlanta make up the best band to come along in a long while. Comparisons are drawn between The Greencards and several current groups but they truly defy comparison and categorization. Buy Viridian and you'll also want their previous two. Then go see them live. They tour nationwide.
