Since our show at Argo Tea last week, we have been busy working out the details of our upcoming benefit concert at Southpaw in January. Basically, Sing for Hope “Street Pianos” will be a reprisal of the massively successful “Street Pianos“ 2010. Last time, there were 60 pianos distributed around the city. This year, they are working on getting 88 pianos spread across all...
Argo Tea in-store performance
Back in October, a haphazard tweet led us to the possibility of performing at Argo Tea, an increasingly popular chain of tea cafés based in Chicago. Argo sells specialty tea drinks (bubble tea, hot chocolate tea, tea smoothies) and has NYC locations in Union Square, Columbus Circle, and the Flatiron Building. On Dec 18, we will do a set in the Union Square location, right in the storefront...
Pics from another afternoon spent dutifully in the studio, watching David tweak and twiddle. Can’t wait to share some finished work with everyone in the coming months…this whole thing has been such a journey! When we listen, it makes us think of ocean waves, and trains, and moons rising over brownstones, and mailing addresses, and email addresses, and hearts, and closeness, and...

Our set included “Famous Blue Raincoat,” “Scout,” and a new version of...
So many exciting things these past few weeks—enough to get me back on Tumblr for the first time in a while, at least. After I helped out a wonderful, but struggling, East Village cafe and jazz performance space by giving them some press to raise awareness, the co-founders kindly let us perform there last Thursday. We had a warm, magical evening there, goofing around on the piano, and then...
SONGS TO ORDER
Starting Wednesday, October 13, Greene Girl will be looking for song requests. And by “song request,” we mean we write the song for you. So don’t go sending us pleas for Leonard Cohen covers, or Billy Joel, or The Supremes, or anything like that. Here’s how it works. You send us a description—of a person you have a crush on, or a memorable dinner party you recently...
