Craig Greenberg has been hailed as NYC’s most acclaimed post-millennial piano man. Over the past 15 years, the native New Yorker has been a staple on the city’s music scene, capturing and building on the spirited ivory traditions of greats like Billy Joel, Ben Folds and Randy Newman with sparkling, soulful new musical twists, a larger than life personality and his insightful, dramatic sense of storytelling.
Craig has independently released 4 albums (his most recent full length Phantom Life released in Dec 2020), and has performed upwards of 1000 shows, since his start playing in bars while living in Chile, and later Spain, in the early 2000s. His songs have received praise in American Songwriter, the Huffington Post, Relix Magazine, and have been played on radio stations all around the country and internationally (as well as locally on WFUV). In 2021, his song “Oh Caroline” placed in the semifinals of the International Song Competition. He has performed everywhere from Lincoln Center in New York, to Israel and Cambodia, and with esteemed musicians such as Jackson Browne, Chris Barron (Spin Doctors), Jane Wiedlin (the Go Go’s), Louise Goffin, and Jerry Joseph.
Craig’s new EP “Between the Sea and the Sky” is set for release in Dec 2022.
DM and the Expats
DM and the Expats was founded by Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter DM Salsberg in 2018. Influences of Joni Mitchell, Fiona Apple, and Ann Wilson come through in her confessional lyrics and effortless vocal gymnastics. The band's acoustic sound is new yet familiar, like an antique chair that has been freshly uphosltered. Alternating between soft and soothing and impactful angst, their performances keep audiences entranced.
DM and the Expats' enthusastic local following has packed intimate venues in and around NYC (Pete's Candy Store, Rockwood Music Hall, Cornelia Street Cafe, Drom) and made instant fans on tour in CA (Harvelle's Santa Monica, The Virgil).
