THE GREENE HOUSE EFFECT is an album with powerful compilations of production, style and music and artistically delivered by one Bay Area artist, Calio.Songs like, “Take ‘Em to the West” and “I Run the Block” are just a tease of explosive tracks with genius metaphors and great production.


Raised in San Jose, California and residing in El Paso, Texas, Calio (James Greene) is an amazing artist. He personifies an enticing flavor that is a mixture of creativity, style and Hip-Hop. He always had a great interest in music and he learned a lot from his uncle, Lee Anthony Reynolds. Artistically, he will mesmerize you, but the combination of his business savvy and artistic aura has determined his destiny.

His destiny has taken him from California to many places in the world, including serving our country in Iraq for 13 months. Even on foreign soil the familiarity of Hip-Hop embedded his soul and he wrote song after song. He never questioned his place in the world, and when he was planted in El Paso a great union was patiently been waiting for him. The union of 720 Records and Calio’s, Big Business Entertainment is a universal gift to the world.

“I want to give something unique to people in every aspect of entertainment. I have big dreams and I understand big business. The name of my company says it all and my vision is clear,” says a serious Calio. He also understands people and working with CEO of 720 Records, La Forest Gray fits “like a hand in glove.” The production of his debut album, THE GREENE HOUSE EFFECT is just that, like a phenomenon on another planet. When the listener gets into THE GREENE HOUSE, something will happen to their soul and they will embrace the music and the culture of Hip-Hop..

The production of THE GREENE HOUSE EFFECT and producers, Volatile and Rocwilder are explosive with tracks like the first single, “Step Yo’ Game Up“, “I Run the Block” and “Take ‘Em to the West”. There is a mystique about Calio and he will keep you wondering what is next. He wants you to vibe with Calio, but connects with James Greene, the man. Calio is a prolific writer and through is writing, he shares a part of him and releases the chronicles of his SOUL.

In 1988 he was a fan of Hip-Hop but in 1999, it became his life and he is inviting millions to embrace his delivery, and share his lyrics, passion and love of Hip-Hop. This is Calio, and a reflection of his Life!
