Green River Ordinance
Over the decade-long journey from their first incarnation as 13 and 14 year old kids in Fort Worth, Texas to the upcoming release of their latest EP, “Chasing Down the Wind,” Green River Ordinance has evolved steadily.
“Chasing Down the Wind” features the continued growth of Green River Ordinance’s honest, hopeful songwriting, and soaring harmonies. Written on the banks of the Caney Fork River in rural Tennessee, “chasing down the wind” captures the spirit and freedom that comes from escaping the rush of the big city and rediscovering the simple things in life.
GRO’s intensity and strong fan connection prompted EMI to sign them to Capitol Records and in 2009, the band’s debut album, “Out of My Hands,” shot to the top of the Billboard charts and catapulted their two singles “Come On” and “On Your Own” into the top 40. GRO has shared stages with acts like Bon Jovi, Train, needtobreathe, Zac Brown Band, Counting Crows and the Goo Goo Dolls, among many others.
GRO has had their music played on 56 network and cable shows, in three films, and had their videos featured on MVP, VH1 and CMT. GRO’s independent follow-up record, “Under Fire,” propelled by the success of the singles “Dancing Shoes” and “Heart of Me” in both Country and Hot AC formats, continued to push the band’s national success reaching the Billboard top 100 chart.
Walking the lines of country, rock, pop, and folk, Green River Ordinance is a band that constantly challenges the boarders of genre. However as their music continues to mature and change, GRO still holds true to the pursuit of music that speaks to the soul and moves your feet.
