Greene Is  Announced As New Full-Time Guitarist For Renowned Progressive Rock Group, The Alan Parsons Live Project; Upcoming Shows In Israel, Czech Republic, Poland, & Russia

 Santa Barbara-based guitarist Alastair Greene has just been announced as the new full-time guitarist for the Alan Parsons Live Project. The famed progressive rock band fronted by multi-instrumentalist Alan Parsons is known for such mega-hits as “Eye in the Sky,” “Time,” and “I Robot,” among others. Greene kicked off his guitar duties in the Alan Parsons Live Project March 7th with two shows in Tel Aviv, Israel.

 Greene is receiving great reviews for his just-released CD, WALKING IN CIRCLES. “You will be hard-pressed to find another young guitarist whose work demonstrates a better example of both from where the blues has come as well as to where it may be headed,” raves BLUESROCKERS. “Alastair Greene and his band aim to please as they dish out a swingin’ session of five feel-good covers and six originals…Greene sings with spirit and tells it like it is while his electric guitar adds a stimulating sizzle that punctuates hard,” writes SOUTHLAND BLUES. “Walking In Circles is anything but a rehashing of the longtime S.B. stalwart’s multifaceted musical past,” states the SANTA BARBARA INDEPENDENT.

Since his 2002 debut CD A LITTLE WISER,  Alastair Greene (known as ‘AG’ by friends and fans) has released two live CDs and a collaboration with French blues guitar hero Frank ‘Paris Slim’ Goldwasser on Riatsala Music. Greene also played guitar on recent releases by the aforementioned Parsons (2006 Grammy-nominated ‘A Valid Path);  Aynsley Dunbar (2008 release ‘Mutiny’); as well two CDs on the Delta Groove Record Label: Frank Goldwasser’s 2007 release ‘Bluju’ and Mitch Kashmar’s 2006 release ‘Wake Up and Worry’. The Alastair Greene Band has been performing live for over 10 years in various incarnations. Greene still performs regularly with Mitch Kashmar, Frank Goldwasser, and other blues and roots acts.
