Genesis Green
Genesis Green

Genesis Green is bassist/lead vocalist for Asteria Lux, which debuted at #7 on the itunes Jazz chart this year and was picked twice as a featured artist on Reverbnation. She has sung on records by Eric Heatherly and in a choir on a Stevie Wonder CD. Her smoky tone has been compared to Billie Holiday and Amy Winehouse. Her debut at the legendary Bluebird Café sold out in less than a minute. Genesis was one of only 12 exceptional singer/songwriters to earn a spot at the invitation only “2012 Young Writers’ Conference”, held at ASCAP Nashville. Watch for her on the pilot of ‘Feeding the Starving Artist’, coming to TV soon and on Season 2 of ‘Nashville Unleashed’ with Asteria Lux.
