"Shoutout from One Pelham East (Newport, RI)"

"Yea, they`re a bunch of white boys that rap, but we`re telling you,
these guys are rig-god-damn-diculous.

Boston based GLI is re-defining the sound and style of the American cover band scene. Could we call it a nitch market, a market thats long since chosen the pisser over listening to another brown eyed girl cover. NO it`s not a nitch market you idiot, it`s the future and these guys are on the frontier. Besides writing and producing a ton of their own material they are dominating the cover scene by playing songs that chics love to dance to and dudes love to vibe to. Classic throwbacks by Biggie, Snoop and Dre are destroying the local college scene and curbing the less-than competition, these guys are building a strong portfolio of opening for big headliners, taking over college cities, and setting up national tours.

Long story short, these guys are showman and innovators and you don`t have to love rap to to dig what these guys bring to the table. One Pelham East is banking on that bet and has booked them every Thursday for the 2012 summer." - One Pelham East

"Interview with YourMusicNews (Canada)"

Interview with Green Line Inbound

How did the band members meet?

It's kind of a wild story in terms of how we all met…J(.)(.)$E and Rare Breed were friends since kindergarten, while Husky J, B-Mac, and DJ GBLOK met while in line for their dorm keys the first day of college freshman year. Coincidentally, J(.)(.)$E, Husky J, and B-Mac were dorm roommates. We all became friends from hanging out, and after countless nights of Nintendo 64 binges we realized that we had the proper instrumentation to set up a few jam sessions. After playing together a few times, we decided for formally start a band together and the rest has been history.



Green Line Inbound
How did you decide on a band name?

We decided on the name Green Line Inbound because it's rooted deeply in Boston. Our college, as well as our old Band house were located along the green line in Boston, so Green Line Inbound just kind of stuck.

Who are some of your major influences?

We all come from different musical backgrounds, but share a lot of the same "favorite" artists and influences. We are mainly influenced by the Hip-hop mainstream of the past few decades, with specific artists being Notorious B.I.G., Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre, Wiz Khalifa, and a couple other oddballs like Lil' Wayne or LMFAO. Other than that, we pretty much enjoy listening to anything that's good.


Where do you draw inspiration from?

Most of our inspiration in our own writing comes from the above influences, and we try to bring the elements of that sound to our own music. Over the past couple of years, our sound has evolved and we've sort of "re-formatted" our songs and sound to its current configuration.


What is your favourite song that you have written and why?

All of them! (Haha). Well, it's tough to say that we have one favorite, so the most recent four off of our Mixtape have pretty much been the current favorites. We'll be releasing our own take on a Boston tribute song late this summer with a few special guests on the track, so that just might become our favorite!


What do you hope listeners take away from your music?

Whether they're listening to a recording or seeing us live, we hope that our listeners feed off of the energy that we put out and feel good. We want them to have a good time, and basically just want to make people feel like partying!


Any advice for bands that are just starting out?

Keep on keeping on. There's new things that we're learning every day about being in a band. If you work hard and believe in yourself & your craft, people will notice and have no choice but to take you seriously. Some days you might be playing your biggest show yet, and other days you might be broken down in your van on the side of the Jersey turnpike. All of it is part of the big story, and each band tells their own in time.


Where can people get a hold of your music?

Google us. We're on most social networks (so go and Like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter), and have a strong YouTube presence of both Cover & Original songs. You can download all of our tracks for Free off of our website as well!


Finally, is there anyone you would like to give a shout out to?

We'd like to shout out to friends, family and fans - thanks for the continued support. Also shootouts to our CA$HFORD crew, our Photo/Video director Steve at Mindlessphotos.com, and all of the amazing artists in our local Boston community for creating such an awesome scene to be a part of. - YourMusicNews

""The Mixtape" EP Review"

One thing that will last for sure, is the house that GLi is building on sound. This band tunes in to their listeners, yet keeps their own dreams and creativity close, so that their set never gets boring or dated. All the while they are planning and moving forward with their own musical vision. Real musicians playing real instruments, writing their own songs and pushing the genres they love forward to blaze a trail of their own. Take them to the stars, Mars awaits! - Bluebird Reviews

"Lansdowne Pub Show Review"

Last night I went out to the Landsdowne Pub and these guys, Green Line Inbound, were the band playing. Their set included covers of hip hop/dance songs and let me tell you - they can spit and they can get the crowd moving. Very impressed by these dudes -- a bunch of white guys covering Snoop (and actually playing their instruments)?? Love it. - Welcome to the G Spot blog

The band playing that night was called Green Line Inbound, and they were AMAZING! The lead singer was rapping like he was born with a mic in his hands–his flow was ruthless! - Stop, Breathe, Listen blog

"IAtv Review"

It's one thing for digital beats to be tight -- you wouldn't expect anything less. But for a full band to translate them perfectly live? That's something to take note of. Boston's Green Line Inbound does just that, and stopped by the studio last week to demonstrate. - Indie Ambassador Blog

"Music Monday"

First I want to warm your ears up with some wild beats from our buddies at Green Line Inbound out of Boston, MA. Their sound is so unique it is impossible to classify, but if you need a classification here it is:
Green Line Inbound combines funk, dance/pop, and rap with Barry White and hot sauce to make something you have truly never ever heard. They use a keyboard, base, guitar, drums, a disk jockey and even a talk box. They carry two lead singers with other band members also making contributions and bring everything together nicely.

The covers these guys do are absolutely killer – from Snoop to Cake – and they add their own flavor to each while also doing justice to the original version. Unfortunately, YouTube has yet to truly capture their brilliance as peoples’ phones aren’t precision sound instruments. Their original songs are also sick and unique and you should definitely check them out on their website, (I personally recommend the studio version of “Give it Up”). You can download their EP there for just $3! - LacrosseAllstars.com

"Green Line Inbound"

his past weekend I took the Bus down to Beantown (Boston for those who are unaware) to visit some friends. It was a nice getaway from Maine, especially since i’m a city dude! Once the bus arrived at South Station, I put my iPod on, headphones in and hit the streets to find the nearest T for the Green Line Inbound--destination, Brookline!

Finally arriving at my destination, my friends and I started pre-gaming (duh) before we set loose on the town. It was a relief to be in the good hands of both my friends, Leah and Emily--they know all the hot spots! We ended up posting up at a place called “Landsdowne Pub” right across from Fenway Park and had a BLAST!

The band playing that night was called Green Line Inbound (ironic haha) and they were AMAZING! The lead singer was rapping like he was born with a mic in his hands--his flow was ruthless! I had the chance to speak with Harrison (lead singer) during one of their intermissions and let him now how impressed I was with their set.

I video taped two of their songs during their set (Music bloggers, gotta love us) with my iPhone. The first song is a cover of “Forgot About Dre” by Eminem and Dre, followed by a cover of “Ms. Jackson” by Outkast. Definitely, peep their website and support this dope ass band!

With swagger like P-Funk and the punch of Michael Jackson, Green Line Inbound delivers to you the pleasure of sex in your earbuds mixed with a live show that you’ll never want to leave.

P.S. Big shout to my girl Emily for the unbelievable weekend!

P.P.S. Sorry for zooming in on the guitar players shoes for awhile on the Outkast video--I just thought they were PIMP! I may, or may not have been drinking too haha--sorry for partying! - Stop Breathe Listen

Bio

GLi brings its 90s style to modern pop by blurring the line between electronic music and hip hop. Husky J, BMac, Rare Breed, GBlok, and J(. )( .)$E started out as 5 kids hailing from Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Sacramento, and Cape Cod that all met their first day of college in Boston. Realizing they had similar tastes in music, the group began playing together several times before formally starting a band. Since forming in 2008, the group has set out to emulate the sounds of popular music in the mainstream, all while maintaining their own creative influence and style.

Green Line Inbound got their start performing in basement keg parties around Boston,and have since been the recurring weekend soundtrack to student parties and campus events at more than 10 schools along the east coast. Deciding to take their performance to the next level, the group began performing at local clubs and concert venues in the New England area ranging from 100-2,500 in capacity. With two extended residencies, a number of headlining shows, festival performances, and several shows opening for acts of national acclaim, Green Line Inbound is quickly gaining exposure with their catchy songs and in-your-face live presence.

The band currently boasts a 4-song mixtape released January, 2012, with music videos accompanying 2 of the songs. Having been described as a mix between LMFAO and Wiz Khalifa, their music has the right balance of dance, hip-hop, and energy to keep any party going. With a full tour schedule always on their plate, GLi aims to bring their music to colleges and clubs across the country.
