With a British-influenced timbre that emerged in many garage bands of the late '90s, the Greenhornes have an almost jam-like quality to their unperturbed tempo.

Maintaining the simplicity of a 3-piece rock group, the band deceptively weaves in more complex sounds with its affable melodies and freewheeling rhythms. Led by vocalist and guitarist Craig Fox, the band also includes bass guitarist Jack Lawrence and drummer Patrick Keeler, both of whom perform and record with Jack White in the Raconteurs.

Formed in Cincinnati originally by 5 high school friends, the band, now a trio, put out its first LP in 8 years last year, Four Stars (sometimes written as ****). Marked by an esteem for the legends of the past, such as the Who and the Zombies, the Greenhornes elaborate on their rock of foundation with an unassuming air. Their clean instrumentations, paired with the breeziness of Fox's vocals, generate a backyard-show appeal that migrates into the venue of relaxing alone with a glass of lemonade on a warm spring night, letting them be the soundtrack to your life. And don’t forget the danceable beats they don’t mind throwing in now and then. Mix it all together, and you get a Midwest-based group that can wake you up in the morning or spruce up an evening out.
