    Still glowing from 2019's sold out performance, Payomet is gearing up to welcome back Citizen Cope for another stellar evening of live music on Saturday, August 21!

    Ask him how he knew it was time to record his first new studio album in seven years, and Clarence Greenwood, the trailblazing artist and producer better known as Citizen Cope, has a simple answer: “It was time.”

    Cope has built an entire career on trusting his gut and following his muse, and if his new album is any indication, his instincts are sharper now than ever before. As technically innovative as it is emotionally resonant, the record arrives at a uniquely challenging moment in modern American culture, when profound political polarization and social divisions seem to grow deeper by the day. Rather than dwell on our differences, though, Cope tunes in to what unites us here, drawing on everything from Chuck Brown and The Beatles to Randy Newman and Bill Withers, aiming his unique brand of urban‐folk inwards to reflect on the personal journeys we all undertake to embrace ourselves despite our flaws.

    *$1 from every ticket will be donated to an organization of the artists choosing.
