THE HEAVY SOUND OF ALASTAiR GREENE
AND HiS NEW CD THROUGH THE RAiN
DECEMBER 21, 2011 - Guitarist, Singer, and Songwriter ALASTARI GREENE has been a mainstay of the Southern California music scene for over 2 decades. ALASTAIR was born April 18th, 1971 in Santa Barbara, CA. He discovered music through his mother's piano playing at home and whose record collection included classics by THE BEATLES, STEVIE WONDER, and ELTON JOHN, while his father's tastes at the time leaned toward BACH and BEETHOVEN. Alastair was inspired to pursue music as a career by his grandfather, the late CHICO ALVAREZ, who played trumpet as a member of the STAN KENTON in the '40s and '50s. Growing up, Alastair took piano lessons and played the saxophone before discovering the guitar in High School. He received a scholarship to the Berklee College of Music in Boston, where he studied for two years before returning to southern California to begin playing with Blues and Rock bands in the early ‘90s. Alastair is best known for his blues-based, soulful, and melodic guitar playing (as well as one of a rare-breed to play slide guitar), ALASTAIR can be heard on CDs by ALAN PARSONS (2006 Grammy Nominated ‘A Valid Path’); AYNSLEY DUNBAR (2008 SPV Records release ‘Mutiny’); Blues singer, harmonica legend, and former member of WAR, MITCH KASHMAR (2005 ‘Wake Up and Worry’ on Delta Groove Records), as well as French Blues Guitarist FRANCK GOLWASSER’s 2007 release ‘Bluju.’ ALASTAIR has put out 5 of his own CDs and has also appeared on countless independent CD releases ranging from Blues to Southern Rock. Alastair's song 'The Long Way Home' appeared in a 2007 episode of the TNT hit TV series 'Saving Grace'. The Hard Rock CD 'THROUGH THE RAIN' is scheduled to be released in November 2011 on LeRoi Records following the release of the single 'BY THE WAY' which features a guitar trade-off solo between Alastair and TY TABOR from King's X.
