I’ll try not to make my fan girl too obvious here, but Greensky is LIFE. 

I wanted to make designs for the band forever, and finally got the chance when they hired me for a tee design in 2014. Since that project, I have gotten to make some really fun stuff for the band and some of their side projects. 

They have a great style as a band, and have never opted for anything too obviously bluegrass. They stayed open to great progressive branding and merch, which kept them from being labeled as “just” a bluegrass band. To me, they are like punk grass with a jam band light show. Any way you describe them, it’s been really fun to make them custom, off the wall, non bluegrass designs over the years.
