Home: USA   

Singer/songwriter Craig Silver has compiled an impressive track record writing and performing songs on everything from politics and pop culture to love and the universal quest for spiritual fulfillment. Silver has performed on CNN, National Public Radio and the Sci Fi Channel and has been heard on dozens of radio and TV stations in New York and throughout the country. Based in New York, he's also performed in Europe and Latin America.

PLANET DANCER, Silver's second CD, offers up more of Silver's songs of social and political satire, including his stinging comment on


the energy crisis, "Gasoline is the Heroin of America." He takes listeners on a mystical musical journey with songs like "Have You Seen The World?" and weighs in on the difficulties of romance in "Love, Sex and Madness." Silver's song about Sept. 11, "How Do You Tell The Children?," was presented on Bob Sherman's folk radio show, Woody's Children, on New York's WFUV.

Billboard magazine has compared Silver with legendary folk troubadour, Phil Ochs.

PLANET DANCER was produced by Nick Holmes, who has contributed to albums by such music luminaries as Jerry Jeff Walker, Carly Simon and Bette Midler.
