Mike Greenhaus (born July 16, 1981) is an American journalist, editor and blogger. He currently serves as the Editor-in-Chief of Relix magazine and the Vice President of the Relix Media Group,[1] [2] the parent company of Relix and the Here & There network. Greenhaus also hosts the bi-monthly Friday Night Jam speaking series, which explores the intersection of music and spirituality.[3]

Early life

Greenhaus was born in New York City and grew up in Westchester, NY.[4] He graduated from Skidmore College in 2003[5] and currently resides in New York with his wife Amy (born June 1, 1984),[6] managing editor of PRSA Tactics,[7] and their son Jackson Buckley (born July 26. 2018). While he college, he was Managing Editor at the Skidmore News; the issue published immediately after 9/11 received the tAssociated Collegiate Press award for a four-year college weekly's special coverage of the community reaction to the September 11 attacks. He formed the Incidental Animals,[8] a supergroup featuring members of ALO, The String Cheese Incident and Trey Anastasio Band, for his New York wedding reception. He is Jewish. [9]


Greenhaus started writing for Relix in college[10] and joined the editorial team full-time in September 2003. He's held several posts on the masthead during the past 17 years and currently serves as Relix's Editor-in-Chief,[11] a position he shares with Dean Budnick. [12]

In addition to his print publication responsibilities, Greenhaus oversees the site's daily newswires and a series of in-office videos that has featured Bill Frisell, Bob Weir, the Doobie Brothers and Khruangbin's first Manhattan appearance

His cover story and major profile subjects for Relix include: Neil Young, Bob Weir, Gregg Allman, Phish, MGMT, The National, Wilco, The Beach Boys, My Morning Jacket, Tame Impala, Chris Robinson Brotherhood, Grace Potter, Art Garfunkel, Lenny Kaye, Cat Stevens, Interpol, The War on Drugs and the Disco Biscuits, among others. Greenhaus has a particular interest in the intersection of the jamband scene's grassroots approach with popular culture,[13] [14]especially the post-jam indie-rock world,[15] and has explored the subject at length through profiles of Vampire Weekend, Joe Russo and Marco Benevento, Bon Iver, Real Estate, Woods, ALO, Justin Bieber guitarist Dan Kanter and Broad City's Abbi Jacobson, among others.

In 2005, Greenhaus launched Relix's official podcast, Cold Turkey, with Deal author Benjy Eisen.[16] Cold Turkey was one of the first official magazine podcasts [17] and featured in depth-interviews with acts like The Flaming Lips, Art Neville, Jack Antonoff, Dr. Dog, Page McConnell and many others at festivals across the country. Greenhaus and Eisen produced over 150 episodes of Cold Turkey through 2009, at which point the podcast morphed into Relix's in-office video series [18] He has also appeared on podcasts including Long May They Run, Under the Scales and The What Podcast.

In 2009, Greenhaus was part of a team of longtime Relix employees to purchase Relix magazine from Zenbu Media.[19] Teaming with noted concert promoter Peter Shapiro, Greenhaus, fellow editors Dean Budnick and Josh Baron and sales executives Rachel Baron and Cole Boyle formed the Relix Media Group to oversee the publications. [20] Soon after, they formed the Here & There music network,[21] which sells across sites including Brooklyn Vegan, Consequence of Sound and This Song Is Sick, among others. He currently serves as Relix Media Group's Vice President.[1]

Greenhaus has played an active role in Relix's custom publishing business, which producers onsite daily newspapers at festivals across the country. He has served as an editor for the Bonnaroo Beacon, the event's official newspaper, since 2004 and an editor for all Phish's official onsite festival newspapers since 2004. [22] [23]

Greenhaus has produced a series of events for Relix over the years, including working as a producer on the Jammy awards from 2004-2008[24] and the producer of the Brooklyn Is Dead event at New York's Brooklyn Bowl in 2014.

Relix is the second longest running print music magazine after Rolling Stone. [25]

[27] Previous guests have included: Chris Robinson, Matisyahu, Craig Finn, Sinkane, Lisa Loeb, Lenny Kaye, Antibalas, Twisted Sister's Jay Jay French, Rubblebucket, Dr. Dog's Erik Slick, Sonya Kitchell, Ace of Cups [28] Santo, Orli and Jeremiah Lockwood, among others.[29] The afro-beat band Armo formed out of the series.[30] From 2015-18, Rabbi Dan Ain cohosted the series with Greenhaus; Rabbi Daniel Brenner has served as cohost since 2018. The Friday Night Jam originally took place at New York's LPR but has been held at Rockwood Music Hall more recently. [31] [32]

As an extension of the Friday Night Jam, Greenhaus helped launch a non-profit that produces other spiritually driven Jewish holiday events that explore the intersection of pop music and religion.[33] He has produced High Holiday services at New York's Brooklyn Bowl,[34] Nublu, The Cutting Room, Roulette and ShapeShifter Lab. Rabbi Brenner leads the services alongside musical director and Antibalas trumpeter Jordan McLean and producer Wendi Weinman. [35]
