An artist that will perk your ears up... Album release at Project Lodge.

David Berkeley was named one of WXPN's “Artists to Watch,” wrote his song “Fire Sign” for the CBS series Without a Trace and has performed on World Café, Mountain Stage, XM’s Loft Sessions, WFUV with John Platt and radio and television stations across the country. He received ASCAP’s Johnny Mercer Songwriter Award and, perhaps most notably, performed on PRI’s ‘This American Life’, telling the awkward and hilarious story of a private serenade he was hired to perform to help a guy win back an ex-girlfriend.

Here's what the press is saying about this new voice on the block:

"Berkeley sings in a lustrous, melancholy voice with shades of Tim Buckley and Nick Drake...As his melodies ascend to become benedictions and consolations, the music shimmers and peals." --The New York Times

"The best of the young American songwriters, a voice full of feeling and a big, big heart. And the balls to say what he thinks." - Boston Phoenix

"Emotional story-telling lyrics, charismatic stage presence, and hilarious anecdotes" - Boston Globe

“Often compared to Nick Drake, Tim Buckley and Donovan due to his emotive, airy vocals and pensive qualities, Berkeley crafts his songs like watercolor paintings. Intimate and introspective, his gentle yet colorful melodies are graceful and resonate long after the last note fades.” —Hal Horowitz, Creative Loafing

“He’s a musical poet.” —San Francisco Chronicle
