Liv Greene is an Americana singer-songwriter, guitarist, producer and educator based in Nashville TN, whose music “envelops a forlorn loneliness that’s at once poignant and crushing”– American Songwriter. Inspired by the Americana records her parents played in her childhood home in Washington D.C., Greene’s passion for songs started in early childhood, and took off the moment she taught herself her first guitar chords at age 12.
A graduate of the New England Conservatory’s Contemporary Improvisation program, and Interlochen Arts Academy’s songwriting program, Liv is also a student of the rich New England folk scene, where she has immersed herself since first attending “fiddle camp” in the region in 2013. Greene is an award winning songwriter, and in 2019 was the winner of the Kerrville Folk Festival’s New Folk Competition for Emerging Songwriters, as well as the first alternate in the Telluride Bluegrass Festival’s Troubadour Contest. In 2020 she released her debut album, “Every Bright Penny,” produced by Isa Burke (Aoife O’Donovan, Lula Wiles). When not on the road or collaborating with other artists in her current hometown of Nashville, Greene loves teaching. She has been teaching songwriting for 4 years, both in private lessons and in classroom environments at the Passim School of Music and Interlochen Arts Camp. She is currently hard at work on her second record, of all original music, which is being self-produced and engineered by Matt Andrews (Gillian Welch, O Brother Where Art Thou?).
