"City Pages (Central WI), Green Tea"

"This band is a frequent performer in the Wausau and Stevens Point areas, bringing a large crowd to every lively performance scattered across the Midwest. We now have certifiable evidence why: They recently were named finalists in the worldwide John Lennon Songwriting Contest, juried by seasoned musicians like Natasha Bedingfield and Lamont Dozier..." - City Pages (Central WI)

"City Pages (Central WI), Wake the Conscious CD review by Editor, Tammy Stezenski"

"Wake the Conscious is full of almost symphonic richness... And of course, that's always what we loved about Green Tea..." - City Pages

"Fanrealm, Wake the Conscious CD review by Jane Woods"

Green Tea is a genre defying band from Wisconsin. They will blow you away from the first note you hear. From the sheer musicianship of the band you would expect them to be a lot older than they are. They have made a name for themselves in the Midwest and are beginning to conquer the rest of the world. - Fanrealm

"The Green Tea quintet played with the confidence of patriots from county Sligo before one of the largest crowd at the Heyde. The music was Celtic and hot." - Tom Chisholm


Still working on that hot first release.



As a Finalist for the John Lennon Songwriting Contest 2012 Green Tea is turning heads with their songwriting, indie roots rock sound, and high energy shows. Their song "Run" was recently chosen by a top music industry panel of judges including Fergie, The Veronicas, Natasha Bedingfield, Jesse Harris, Lamont Dozier, Matt Pinfield, Bob Weir, Ryan Shaw, The Bacon Brothers, or Ken Komisar. Among other career accomplishments, Green Tea has also opened for Rusted Root 3 times, Family Groove Company, My Dear Disco, Tommy and the High Pilots, & That 1 Guy, and supported Richie Havens, Gaelic Storm, John Hiatt, Alejandro Escovedo, Trapper Schoepp and the Shades, & Wookiefoot, received 2010 & 2011 WAMI nominations, and showcased at NACA - Northern Plains 2009 leading to 15 different college shows throughout the Midwest.

To share the unified soul that is music through songs that drive bodies to move, inspire the conscious observer, and enchant the intellectual spirit is the main substance of Green Tea's music and performance. In a live show review, Dino Corvino of the Central WI City Pages said “It takes just one experience hearing Green Tea to become a fan… Perhaps that’s why, when weather pushed their Concert on the Square show into the Great Hall last year, the place literally overflowed with people frantic to hear the music.”

"They will blow you away from the first note you hear." -Jane Woods, Fanrealm

Sonic diversity flows rampant within this group whom originates from New York, Washington State, Illinois, and Wisconsin, yet combining these various backgrounds is the natural fusion of Green Tea. The 2012 album release “Wake the Conscious” summarizes this fresh perspective in songwriting and ultimately an energized stage performance. Mixing original indie hooks and lyrics with driving progressions is the band’s modus operandi, catalyzing original inventions behind the scenes and on stage. Not to mention, John (flutes, whistles, vocals) is most likely “THE WORLD’S BEST” hands player (it has to be seen to be believed).

Yet, the band has played the same stages as Melissa Etheridge, Nickel Creek, Indigo Girls, Blues Traveler, Guster, Richie Havens, Violent Femmes, & more…
