Singer/Songwriter aus Santa Fe, New Mexico
„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
Berkeley’s doleful baritone and vulnerable falsetto, called „lustrous and melancholy“ by the New York Times, is up front in the mix, showcasing his profoundly elegiac lyrics. Indeed, Berkeley cites Yeats and Melville among his greatest influences. For his unique way with words, the San Francisco Chronicle dubbed Berkeley „a musical poet.“ He seems even more reflective and more mature than usual in this collection, though, confronting themes of aging, mortality, and the enduring and redemptive power of love.
„I went out to the hazel wood because a fire was in my head.“ – W.B. Yeats
