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. READ MORE
