Clarence Greenwood, who goes by Citizen Cope is an American songwriter and producer.
In 1997 he was signed to Capitol Records. Later, he was signed to Dreamworks and released a self-titled album. The album was instantly noticed. The song ‘Let the Drummer Kick’ has been featured on series such as CSI and entourage, as well on movies like Accepted and Coach Carter. In 2004 he released ‘The Clarence Greenwood Recordings’ which was also self-produced, and in 2006 he released ‘Every Waking Moment’. In 2010, he released a ‘The Rainwater LP’, however, this was done after he had founded his own record label called, Rainwater Recordings.

Since then, his music has been used in so many series. The difference is, it’s rather memorable, when you hear the song, you’ll instantly remember that you heard it in the background of some scene. This happened to me with ‘Sideways’, all I could picture was a Vampire Diaries Elana and Damon scene. After googling it, turns out I was right. His music is background music, and I don’t mean that in a degrading or bad way. What I mean to say is that it creates a mood, or a vibe, which perfectly suits many experiences and therefore, could be a backtrack to your life.
I’d go see him, should he ever make it to South Africa
