Green River Ordinance Debut February 24th!

Guest Author - Peggy Eldridge-Love

I don't do news releases, but this one of those rare, rare, rare occasions where I am! Check out Green River Ordinance! Here's why:


Green River Ordinance is Out of My Hands and into yours...
Texan band to release EMI/Virgin debut February 24, 2009
(New York, NY November 19, 2008) In the mundane world of local law, a Green River
Ordinance prohibits door-to-door sales without a homeowner’s prior permission. Fortunately, the band Green River Ordinance needn’t rely on such pedestrian peddling to sell its wares—its catchy anthems have drawn listeners on their own. The only door-to-door action is purely word ofmouth, as one fan tells another what they’ve found.

Now, listeners everywhere will be able to discover what people in Fort Worth, Texas — the band’s hometown—already know, as EMI/Virgin releases Green River Ordinance’s Out Of My Hands on February 24, 2009. The major-label bow follows independent debut The Beauty of Letting Go, a record that sold well online (reaching #2 at retailer Awarestore.com) and firmly put the band on the map.
Following its release, Green River Ordinance won Artist of the Year, Rock Album of the Year and Song of the Year (for “Piece It Together”) at the 2006 Fort Worth Music Awards, winning Artist of the Year a second time in 2008.
Regional fame landed the band opening slots with artists such as Bon Jovi, Collective Soul, Bowling For Soup, Simple Plan and many others, earning this young band (which formed in high school) the onstage experience and poise of a veteran act.

Out Of My Hands builds on the strengths that got the debut album noticed, with
accessible, hook-laden songs suitable for cruising—windows down and radio blaring. Reminiscent of arena-ready, larger-than-life rock bands, Green River Ordinance expertly blends emotive vocals, guitars-to-11 and anthemic choruses to deliver moments certain to move crowds,with lighters (or phones) inevitably waving in the air. Whether the song is a slow build (“On Your Own”), a propulsive rocker (the title track), or a driving sing-along (lead single “Come On”), Green River Ordinance apparently are incapable of writing anything without a huge chorus that will stick in listeners’ heads for weeks.

The band is composed of singer/guitarist Josh Jenkins, brothers Jamey (guitar) and Geoff Ice (bass), Denton Hunker (drums) and Joshua Wilkerson (guitar). For Out Of My Hands, the band teamed up with producers Mark Endert (Natasha Bedingfield, Maroon 5, Gavin DeGraw), Jordan Critz and Paul Ebersold (Sister Hazel, 3 Doors Down, Third Day) while still keeping the songwriting in-house. The resulting album will be familiar to the band’s hardcore fans while
reflecting the additional time and expertise that went into its creation.
And despite the members’ youthful appearance and debut status, as the years in the Texas trenches demonstrate, this band is anything but green. “We’ve always had a vision about what we wanted to do musically, and we’re still getting it done,” Jenkins reflects. “We’ve stayed true.”
