New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Last night, supergroup August Greene performed their single "Black Kennedy" on Late Night with Seth Meyers. The band is comprised of Golden Globe, GRAMMY, Academy Award winning activist, actor and artist Common, four-time GRAMMY Award winning pianist/producer Robert Glasper, and drummer/producer extraordinaire Karriem Riggins.

August Greene's recently released self-titled Amazon Original album has been praised by NY Times, Pitchfork, XXL, Stereogum, Vibe, Consequence of Sound, Billboard, Rolling Stone, and The FADER, who said said of "Black Kennedy" "Riggins' drums feel like the human body as metronome, a sturdy backbone for Glasper's dreamscape piano and Common's sharp storytelling." NPR Music also featured the band in their Tiny Desk and First Listen series.

In 2017, Common, Glasper, and Riggins collectively won the Emmy for Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics on the strength of their song "Letter To The Free," which was recorded for Ava DuVernay's documentary 13th. The longtime friends and musical collaborators felt the time was right to release music from August Greene, which has themes of optimism and black excellence. They have found a sound that does not solely fit into one genre, but is truly an invigorating hybrid of R&B, hip-hop, and jazz.
August Greene is available to stream and for digital purchase on Amazon Music. Pre-order the album on CD and vinyl at Amazon: http://amazon.com/augustgreene
