In contemporary popular music, vocalist JD Green is a seeming anomaly. She explains her approach to making music by discussing ‘musicianship’ and ‘craft,’ ‘improvisation’ and ‘integrity.’ Her voice is described as ‘clean’ and ‘fresh’: the vocals are natural and un-manipulated, skillful, lovely.

In contemporary popular music, vocalist JD Green is a seeming anomaly. She explains her approach to making music by discussing ‘musicianship’ and ‘craft,’ ‘improvisation’ and ‘integrity.’ Her voice is described as ‘clean’ and ‘fresh’: the vocals are natural and un-manipulated, skillful, lovely. JD Green is a classically trained vocalist with a love for all things funky, soulful, and free. A Detroit native and Louisville transplant, JD is a performing songwriter from the old school of spirituals and roots music, stomp-yo-foot blues, of the pocket and a funky groove; sweet ballads; jazz standards, something to make you pop your fingers and shake your head. She loves to explode and recombine musical categories while always holding onto the essential kernels of a song, seeking always to connect to folk on the level of soul.

Diurnal Movements, the debut album by JD Green, is a robust and eclectic soul offering, containing elements of African American spirituals, jazz, funk, soulful RandB, and a cappella music. This album concerns itself with time and seasons of our lives and our relationships. In the opening songs, JD’s vocal improvisation is bold and refreshing. “Photosynthesis,” “Day,” and “Crush Pt.

1” tell their stories through scat, riffing, and melodic movement as they playfully experiment with form. The songs that round out Diurnal Movements build on this foundation of vocal flexibility, intricate harmony, and a serious groove. JD Green is a musician’s musician, a lover of music, and a student of musicmakers as diverse as Take 6, Sly Stone, Betty Carter, Stevie Wonder, Sweet Honey In The Rock, Joni Mitchell, Shuggie Otis, Bilal Oliver, Judy Garland, Donny Hathaway, and Bill Withers. She loves to explore the nuances of sound and appreciates the power of the unaccompanied voice.

In session recordings, as in live performances, JD Green uses soul music to engage, encourage, and transform. Though the sweetness of her voice may be what attracts, it is her thoughtful lyrics, her “quirky, yet funky” ability to tell the truth and cut to the marrow of our experiences that makes JD Green’s brand of soul music necessary and timeless.
