ALASTAIR GREENE – BLUES ROCK GUITARIST & VOCALIST ALASTAIR GREENE BAND FORMER GUITARIST FOR ALAN PARSONS

Alastair Greene’s musical journey has been anything but traditional. His combination of Blues, Southern Rock, and Jam Band sensibilities has been thrilling audiences for nearly two decades. With recent performances at the Chicago Blues Festival and the Big Blues Bender in Las Vegas as well as a recent tour filling in on guitar with Starship featuring Mickey Thomas, and many guest appearances with such luminaries as Eric Burdon, Walter Trout, Coco Montoya, Savoy Brown, John Nemeth, and Debbie Davies, it’s crystal clear,….. Alastair Greene's star is on the rise. 

Alastair recently plunged headfirst into a full-time solo career, stepping down after 7 years touring the world as the guitarist for Rock legend, Alan Parsons. Alastair is philosophical about his time playing with Parsons, saying, “I’ll always be grateful for the opportunity Alan gave me to handle guitar and vocal duties in his band. It was an honor to play the music created by the Alan Parsons Project to Alan’s fans around the world. After 7 years, the time has come for me to truly pursue my own musical dream.”

The culmination of Greene’s musical experiences, influences, and passion is his new record, Dream Train. The album was produced and mixed by David Z, whose production credits include Buddy Guy, Gov’t Mule, Kenny Wayne Shepherd and Jonny Lang. Dream Train features 13 new songs, 12 of which are Greene originals. The sole cover is a previously unreleased song written by none other than Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top called Nome Zayne, which was recorded with Billy’s blessing. The songs on Dream Train range from the hard driving Blues Rock of the title track, to the sensitive Curtis Mayfield tinged instrumental Iowa. Big Bad Wolf finds the band in familiar Boogie Blues Rock territory while DareDevil takes listeners on a more traditional Blues shuffle ride.

Dream Train features an impressive array of special guests including: Walter Trout, Debbie Davies, Mike Zito, Mike Finnigan, and Dennis Gruenling. Alastair is supported on Dream Train by his touring band, Jim Rankin on bass and Austin Beede on drum
