5th annual Tulsa Roots Rocks the Green
Green Corn Rebellion
Sunday, September 11, 2016 | 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm
Green Corn Rebellion weaves through genres and styles past and present: from swampy backwoods grooves, lush choral harmonies and jazz-infused chords couched within ragged, dirt road Okie tunes, to experimental indie rock shot through with Stax-inspired soul…with an easygoing accessibility and tunefulness. –Tulsa People.
Green Corn’s expansive roots rock is the brainchild of songwriter-picker-pianist Chris Foster (formerly of indie outfit The Mantras and various Tulsa combos). Foster told Tulsa People magazine that a few years ago, he got a hankering to “write every stupid song that came to my mind. Within three weeks I had 12 good songs. I was surprised.” Those songs led to an ever-expanding new band made up of various Tulsa musicians and formed the basis for GCR’s 2013 debut, -2 is the New Zero, followed by the lively POP and Halftime recordings–all exemplary, celebratory examples of the New Tulsa Sound.
