New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Pale Green Things (Jack Traynor) is a solo alt-folk act from Manchester, UK. After becoming disillusioned with the music industry, Traynor took time out becoming a long distance van driver for two years. Travelling across the UK and Europe carrying anything from Motorbikes to Library exhibitions, Traynor found the time being away from music studios with nothing but a guitar and a toothbrush was the perfect writing environment.

"In the last two to three years I've written several albums worth of material. There's not much else to do in a crappy hotel or service station in the middle of nowhere, and no pressure to write the music you feel expected to make.'"

In September 2017 Traynor parted ways with the transport business and got to recording his new songs. The first collection being the debut album The Beast In The Hearts Of Men.

"I wanted to arrange the songs by which ones had similar themes and told similar stories. I felt The Beast In The Hearts Of Men told stories trying to escape but also being chanced and dragged back to where you came from. Given the past few years I thought this would make a good introduction to Pale Green Things."

Named after The Mountain Goats track, "Pale Green Things", Traynor goes for a similar alt-folk approach with additional influences from Sufjan Stevens, Bright Eyes, Belle & Sebastian and Iron & Wine. Out on 6th April 2018 on Just Maybe Records is the debut single, "The Islands", and is an alt-folk tribute to the places that feel so far away from the world.
