Alastair Greene Band & Todd Wolfe Band sign with the Tina Terry Agency for exclusive world-wide representation.
Blues and rock have met at many different crossroads. From Cream and Johnny Winter to Stevie Ray Vaughan and Gov’t Mule these blues rock recipes are often boiled down to a simple trio. Such is the melting pot of influences and presentation of the Alastair Greene Band.
Not only is Greene a blues rock guitar slinging and singing front man, but he has also served many years as a side man to some legendary musicians. Currently, Greene is the touring guitarist with Alan Parsons and has been touring internationally with the English pop/ progressive rock veteran since 2010. After Greene played on Parsons’ 2004 release A Valid Path, Alan was quoted as saying, “Alastair should be out playing guitar with the biggest bands in the world. I believe it’s just a matter of time.” Heady praise indeed coming from the man who engineered Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon, served as second engineer on the last two albums by the Beatles, and has also sold millions of albums with his own Alan Parsons Project. When the guitar slot for Parsons’ band opened in 2010, Greene got the call. Alastair has also appeared on albums by high profile artists such as drum legend Aynsely Dunbar as well as Toad the Wet Sprocket front man Glen Phillips.
Alastair Greene Band is touring worldwide in support of “Trouble at Your Door.” (Eclecto Groove Records).
The Todd Wolfe Band recall the days when “men were men and amps were amps,” real tubes crackling with a blues-adelic sound reminiscent of the best rock and roll bands of the ‘60s. This band jams and rocks, but their music is deeply soaked in blues. Todd Wolfe, Roger Voss and bassist Justine Gardner have established themselves as one of top power trios by relentless international touring and spreading their legend from coast-to- coast and beyond.
In the ‘80s, Todd formed Troy & the Tornados, and they opened for many acts constantly performing in the New York metro area. Todd also met two women in this time period that would eventually play a part in his guitar playing experience: Carla Olson of the Textones and Sheryl Crow, who at the time was an unknown back-up singer. By the late ‘80s, Sheryl had sat in several times with Todd in New York City after being introduced to him by the man who would eventually manage both of them. Todd decided to fly out to Los Angeles and write with Sheryl and showcase their new band in hopes of a record deal. Nothing came of this particular venture, but these two would find each other again on the same stage. Todd decided to re-locate to Los Angeles with revamped line-ups and began to perform in small clubs in southern California while also scoring music for the Playboy Channel and eventually joined up with old friend Carla Olson and her latest band. But it wasn’t long until Todd was back with Sheryl Crow, as she had just completed her soon to be released debut album, the multi-platinum Tuesday Night Music Club. Crow needed a touring band, including a lead guitarist that could add some extra excitement to the live shows and Todd filled that role for almost five years, touring the world!
After Todd left Sheryl’s band he had a varying lineup of players including Eric Massimino, Michael Lawrence, Rich Pagano, Dave Hollingsworth and other players of merit to where he settled in with the current lineup of Roger Voss on drums and Justine Gardner on bass. Todd’s eighth release since leaving Sheryl’s band, “Miles To Go” in a short time has garnered much praise and great reviews are still rolling in. The band has kept busy with constant tours of Europe and across the USA and Canada.
