The Green was formed in 2009 on the island of O‘ahu, Hawai‘i. The group originally began as a vehicle for these six members of Hawai‘i’s tight-knit music scene to record a few songs and have fun. Their self-titled debut album, released in 2010, earned both critical and commercial acclaim, and was awarded iTunes Best Reggae Album of the Year. Their sophomore album, Ways & Means, their first with Easy Star, hit #1 on the iTunes and Billboard Reggae charts, launching the band into more intense touring, supporting acts like Rebelution, Iration, SOJA, and Damian Marley, as well as performing at acclaimed festivals including Vans Warped Tour, Wakarusa, Sierra Nevada World Music Festival, and California Roots Festival. The band’s second full-length album on Easy Star, Hawai‘i ’13 (2013), produced by Danny Kalb (Ben Harper, Jack Johnson), the band’s first outside producer/engineer, went to #1 on both Billboard Reggae Chart and iTunes Reggae Chart, and also charted on the Billboard Top 200, as well. The Green went on to win three prestigious Na Hoku Hanohano awards in 2014, including Group of the Year, Reggae Album of the Year and Entertainer of the Year. After heavily touring that album for a few years, The Green returned with Marching Orders in 2017, which again put them at the top of the Reggae Chart. In 2019, the band released Black & White, which had them doing new acoustic versions of some of their biggest hits and deep cuts. A new album is in the works for The Green in 2020.
