Described as “passionate, electrifying, and innovative,” international, Billboard-charting recording artists, Chelsey Green and The Green Project, break down stereotypes of traditional string playing. By fusing traditional classical technique with popular songs and original pieces in various genres – including R&B, Pop, Soul, Funk, Jazz and more – The Green Project brings vibrant violin, viola and rich vocals to audiences in a whole new way.

 

The Green Project has toured around the world and performed many prestigious venues and events including the Strathmore Music Center, the opening of the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture, BET Honors Awards Dinner, Capital Jazz SuperCruise, The John F. Kennedy Center, Port-Au-Prince International Jazz Festival, The Citadel in Cairo, Kuwait National Opera House, Bahrain Spring of Culture Festival, Boise State University and more!

 

The Green Project released their debut EP, Still Green: The EP in April 2012 to rave reviews. Their second release and first full length album, The Green Room, debuted on the Billboard Contemporary Jazz Album Chart at #22 and #7 on the iTunes Jazz Albums chart! The group has also released a holiday single, “Sleigh Ride” (2015) and a hot summer single, “Summertime” (2018) which features talented multi-instrumentalist, Warren Wolf.

 

Most recently, The Green Project has released “ReEnvisioned” (2020). This 4-track, genre-bending EP acts as both palate cleanser and preview to their new musical direction. Released in July 2020, this special project features new instrumental and vocal originals and a fresh interpretation of a classic jazz standard that features jazz trumpet great, Sean Jones. ReEnvisioned reached #4 on the iTunes Jazz Chart on the day of its release and has continued to chart worldwide. ReEnvisioned has also received acclaim in many notable written publications including The Hollywood Digest, SoulTracks.com and more!

 

Dedicated to educating our youth, Chelsey Green and The Green Project spend time devoted to the community by providing a wide range of educational music workshops to city and county schools, after school programs, educational groups and more through their TGPEduOutreach program. Committed to spreading the love of live music to younger generations, Chelsey Green and The Green Project work with students from all backgrounds and expose them to the possibilities of what music can be.
