Green Man

Green Man is an American band based in southern California and formed in 1992 by core members April Theriault, Martin Morrisey and Ken Eros. Dark, beautiful, layered, hallucinogenic, smart -- think 1 Giant Leap, Portishead, and Massive Attack filtered through Celtic, Appalachian and Middle Eastern sensibilities.

The palette of sounds is large and varied, combining acoustic instruments (silver and wooden flutes, tin whistle, accordion, cittern, sitar) with Eastern percussion, electric bass, thunderous drums and guitars, all tied together with rich male and female vocals and lush harmonies.

Often blending world and trip-hop beats, Celtic melodies and contemporary, pop and electronica elements, the band frequently blurs the lines between genres -- whether it be an original composition or an unexpected arrangement of a traditional song. The result is a dynamic and cinematic soundscape that is unique, exciting and fresh.
