Citizen Cope — aka Clarence Greenwood — is a storyteller who uses music as his medium. Born in Memphis and growing up primarily in Washington, D.C. (with additional periods in Mississippi and Texas), his itinerant upbringing informed his all-encompassing style, which references the country of Willie Nelson one moment and the soul of Al Green the next. His official bio describes Citizen Cope’s sound as “Southern rural, big-sky lonely, concrete urban, and painfully romantic.” Now imagine all that combined with a radio-friendly sensibility. Citizen Cope plays an acoustic set with no backing band at the Lensic Performing Arts Center (211 W. San Francisco St.) on Monday, April 21, at 7:30 p.m. Tickets, $30 to $50, are available by calling 505-988-1234 and visiting www.ticketssantafe.org.
