An expert at blending musical genres, Citizen Cope (a.k.a. Clarence Greenwood) tells stories with music while incorporating hip-hop beats, quiet piano melodies, a hint of pop and more than a hint of blues. Click the link above to hear Greenwood's brand of self-styled "urban poetry," live in concert from WXPN and World Cafe Live in Philadelphia.

Citizen Cope has released a string of albums in the past decade, when Greenwood wasn't busy contributing to other projects as a DJ, singer, songwriter, keyboardist, guitarist and producer. In March, his own label will put out The Rainwater LP, which carries on Greenwood's tradition of inventive, empathetic blues-rock.
