Craig Gerber - About

biography

It’s all about the song. After years of playing in various bands in the US and Germany, the native Minneapolis singer / songwriter Craig Gerber launched his solo career in 2010 with his much acclaimed debut album „Time Has Come“ (BSC/Rough Trade). Three years later, Gerber is an established solo artist dedicated to songwriting in the finest American tradition. His influences range from Bob Dylan to Neil Young, John Hiatt to Johnny Cash, Tom Petty to Elliott Smith or even Hank Williams. But Gerber’s own remarkable songs, distinctive vocals and passionate stage presence make him a truly original and unmistakably authentic artist in his own right. With the release of his second album “Leaving Tonight” (2014) Gerber continues his journey toward his own, very original sound, taking him one step closer to making his mark as a great songwriter.
