Citizen Cope is a band led by Clarence Greenwood, keyboardist, guitarist, singer, DJ, and record producer for the group. Citizen Cope is now based out of Washington, DC.

Born in Memphis, Tennessee, Greenwood started his musical career as a DJ for the hip hop act Basehead, a group that would have a significant impact on his style as a solo-musician. Citizen Cope blends many genres of music, such as folk, blues, hip hop, rock, and R & B.

Greenwood first released a demo tape under the name Cope Citizen in the late '90s. He would follow up the release of the demo by donating songs to several independently issued compilations, movie soundtracks, as well as appearing on several fellow artists albums.

In 2000 Greenwood signed with the DreamWorks Records label, which released his second album in September 2002, Citizen Cope. Greenwood toured to promote the record as an opener for Nelly Furtado. He performed at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in Indio, California, in 2002.

After the release of Citizen Cope, Greenwood felt the label "mishandled" the record, creating tension between the two. The tension prompted Greenwood to buy out his contract with the label, using the advance he received from his next label, Arista and RCA Records, to do it.

In September of 2004, Citizen Cope released his second record, The Clarence Greenwood Recordings, which earned him much critical success as well as minor touring success as an opening act for a popular touring band, Robert Randolph and the Family Band.

In 2005, Cope continued to tour the United States promoting his second major label record. In April, his song Son's Gonna Rise began appearing in a Pontiac commercial and was distributed as the album's second single « hide
