The Dig are a rock band from NYC. Their music, written by the bands’ three main songwriters, is often based on early rock n roll song forms layered with synths and delivered by alternating lead vocalists. Singers Emile Mosseri and David Baldwin have been making music in various bands together since they were 11 years old. They met up with keyboardist/guitarist Erick Eiser while still in high school, and after writing music together throughout college they eventually moved to New York CIty and formed The Dig.
The Dig got their start in the lower east side of NYC in 2008, and spent their first summer handing out flyers on the street, meeting new people and slowly building up an audience one fan at a time. After 8 weeks of residencies at Pianos and a handful of support shows at Bowery Ballroom, they began to sell out shows on their own.
2009-2010 saw the band touring constantly around the U.S., opening for a wide range of bands including The Walkmen, The Antlers, Portugal. the Man, Thrice, The Editors and Here We Go Magic.
