Smart Bets: Citizen Cope

Clarence Greenwood (aka songwriter/producer Citizen Cope) released his fifth album, One Lovely Day, earlier this year. Filed under "urban folk," acoustic guitar melodies, island-y rhythms and Cope's trademark gravelly/tender vocal underscore themes of love, existentialism, love, sentimentality and love. One Lovely Day sways and ambles through 10 easily digestible tracks that, even at their most socially edgy, are still sonic comfort food. Citizen Cope plays The Orange Peel on Tuesday, Nov. 6. Kenny Roby opens. 9 p.m., $25 in advance or $28 day of show. Photo by Danny Clinch.
