Citizen Cope Hits the Stage Once More, Promoting His First Studio Album in Seven Years

Ask him how he knew it was time to record his first new studio album in seven years, and Clarence Greenwood, the trailblazing artist and producer better known as Citizen Cope, has a simple answer: "It was time."

Citizen Cope is a grassroots songwriter/producer who has released six studio LP’s and sold over 1M records in the US, despite never being embraced by most mainstream media. Raised in Washington D.C., his music career took flight after moving to Brooklyn, NY. In 15 years of touring, he has built a devout following and his music has become the soundtrack to the lives of those who have embraced it.

His first album in seven years, Heroin and Helicopters (March 2019), tackles personal and cultural themes based around societal struggles, political manipulation, relationships, self-awareness, and spiritual enlightenment. It’s named after an encounter with rock ‘n’ roll icon Santana. Now, he is headed to The Rant Concert Hall & Saloon for a live performance on Thursday, June 27th at 7 pm.

This show is for ages 18 and up. Tickets are $26 and can be purchased at the venue. $1 from every ticket will be donated to Mimi Woods Foundation in the US that support enriching youths in need through arts and education. For more information visit
