About Craig Greenberg

Craig has been called this generation's "troubadour piano man" (Jambands.com, Jan 2011), combining the pop sensibilities and greatly skilled musicianship of Billy Joel and Ben Folds, with the lyrical smarts of Randy Newman. His voice brims with soul and personality, coming from his strong native New Yorker identity, and also from his experience getting his start while living abroad, performing in the bars and on the streets of Chile and Spain from 2001 to 2003. Since moving back to his home city in 2004, Craig has been a mainstay on the downtown and Brooklyn music scene, and as well has toured nationally and internationally. Craig's songs, in content and feel, run the gamut from light-hearted and tongue and cheek, to quite dark and edgy. It's his range as a songwriter that sets him apart. In November of 2007, Craig co-produced and released his debut EP, entitled "The World and Back" and in August of 2010 released the follow up EP, entitled "Spinning In Time". He is currently working on his first full length record, which is slated for release late 2012/early 2013. **MORE STUFF ABOUT CRAIG** -Craig has had the privilege of performing with industry greats such as Chris Barron (Spin Doctors), Mike Gordon (Phish), Steve Conte (NY Dolls), Alex Skolnick (Testament), and has accompanied Jackson Browne on several occasions, ecently on piano in front of a crowd of over 6,000 people, as part of Steel Bridge Songfest 4-a benefit concert in Sturgeon Bay, WI, hosted by veteran songwriter Pat mAcdonald (Timbuk 3).
