Today’s “Featured Artist and Song of the Day” showcases northern California’s own, Jackie Greene, with his song, “Gone Wanderin,” off his album, Gone Wanderin’, through DIG Music. He has released a number of records since this album, and songs off those will be featured in future articles of The Troubadour’s Road. Greene has tour dates throughout California and in New York in March, and will be playing a show in Berkeley, CA, in June with the Avett Brothers.
Greene is also apart of a super-group, Trigger Hippy, which is composed of Steve Groman (Black Crowes drummer), Audley Freed (ex-Black Crowes guitarist), Joan Osborne (singer), and Nick Govrik (bassist). They spend last month at the Mission Bells Recording Studio, located in San Francisco, where they are rumored to have recorded tracks for their upcoming debut album.
Whether solo, or in the group, Greene is a true troubadour, and his performances are must-see shows.
These words begin the song, “Gone Wanderin’,”
“Another day has come and gone,
and I can’t figure what went wrong.
Mockingbird, is mocking me
She locked me out and lost the key
And I’ve gone wanderin again I’m out the door
I’m walking by myself, down the street, like the night before
And I should be home in bed, but the notion in my head is
Telling me to ramble on…
Everyday is just a dream:
Stuck inside the Great Machine
You work your job, spend your pay
And no one hears the prayers you pray…”
