Click HERE to listen to listen to Greene Girl's newest EP, Little Rooms!
Greene Girl features Lauren Smith and Alex Schechter, who sing twangy, sparse numbers that suggest a more harnessed version of the Dresden Dolls. The pair have just launched a fine new EP, Little Rooms" - Time Out New York, 2011
Brooklyn based songwriting duo Alex Schechter and Lauren Smith are part of the folk pop group, Greene Girl. They sing catchy, heartfelt, party-electronic songs that center on themes of love, Brooklyn and ghosts - though not necessarily in that order. They have played at many well known NYC venues, including The Living Room, Southpaw, Glasslands, The Mercury Lounge and were given a showcase at New York's legendary music festival, CMJ.
A standup lineup of musicians went into the making of their newest EP, Little Rooms --most notably, the Grammy- winning producer, David Seitz (REM, Moby, Natalie Merchant, Suzanne Vega). The album also features cellist Dave Eggar (Coldplay and Evanescence), drummer Jared Schonig (Wynton Marsalis, Fred Hersch, Wycliffe Gordon) and bassist Mike Visceglia (Bruce Springsteen, Suzanne Vega, Dar Williams).
"What we love doing the most, "explains Alex Schechter, "is singing these songs for our friends. The Little Rooms story is about us, but also about other people, living in Brooklyn, and looking for ways to celebrate each other.
