The Green Leaf is about classic rock and roll music and being free.  The music I listened to and influenced The Green Leaf music ranges from the early days of punk rock, 60’s psychedelic rock, blues, pop, and even classical music. Some of my favorite bands and artists are Jimi Hendrix, Black Flag, The Exploited, Ted Nugent, The Doors, Agent Orange, Suicidal Tendencies, Bob Marley, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Elvis, Motorhead, Beethoven, Link Ray, The Rolling Stones, Eazy-E, The Stooges,  Iggy Pop, Sid Barrette, Siouxsie & the Banshees, The Beatles, The Cramps, The Smiths, Nirvana, Dick Dale, The Violent Femmes, and The Ramones. Recently I have been listening to a lot of contemporary pop and rock music like Rihanna, Cold Play, Lana Del Rey, The White Stripes, The Strokes, Calvin Harris, Tame Impala, and whatever else is new and interesting beaming over the satellite radio. I am into sonic diversity and always enjoy the classics. The Green Leaf has a mix of acoustic and electric songs which are all original music with a gritty aesthetic that I find compelling and enjoy sharing with other music enthusiasts and fans of the genre.

There are a lot of different ways people might have come across The Green Leaf, from our early days as a touring and recording three piece rock and roll band, to recording and playing music out of the back of Big Time Surf Shop and Hot Rod Surf in Mission Beach, to the soundtrack music from the Hot Rod Surf art movies. I have finally got around to setting up our new official website where we can post events and projects from the past, present, and future.
