DM and the Expats
DM and the Expats was founded by Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter DM Salsberg in 2018. Influences of Joni Mitchell, Regina Spektor, 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 upholstered, alternating between softly soothing and soulful angst.
DM and the Expats have played 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, Sculpterra).
Currently, DM hosts a monthly Songwriters in the Round at The Local in LIC and she is in pre-production on a series of music video accompaniments for the release of the next EP, recorded remotely during the pandemic.
