About this event

David Berkeley

THIS SHOW WILL REQUIRE PROOF OF VACCINATION TO BE SHOWN AT CHECK IN FOR ENTRY.

We are thrilled to welcome back Eddie's Attic veteran, songwriter and author (and co-founder of the ATL Collective) David Berkeley. Berkeley writes songs capable of both breaking and mending the heart. His music manages to both reveal the sorrow and the blazing beauty of the human condition. It’s a duality that audiences experience at all of Berkeley’s shows as well, as he tells uproarious stories between cathartic songs. The San Francisco Chronicle calls him a “musical poet,” and the New York Times praises his “lustrous, melancholy voice with shades of Tim Buckley and Nick Drake.” He was a guest on This American Life, and he’s won many songwriting awards and honors including ASCAPs Johnny Mercer Songwriting Award. Berkeley has released six studio albums, one live album, and authored two books. In 2017 release was a never-before tried concept: a novella comprising ten intertwining stories and an album of ten accompanying songs (one for each story). His 2018 comprises some of his most relevant music yet, a set of political love songs called The Faded Red and Blue. Berkeley is back with his most intimate and important album yet, Oh Quiet World, written during the lockdown after his family escaped Spain due to Corona.

In ordinary times Berkeley tours extensively all over the country and world both solo and with his theatrical Trans-Atlantic duo Son of Town Hall. He has opened/toured with Dido, Don McLean, Ben Folds, Billy Bragg, Ray Lamontagne, Nickel Creek, and many more. He was a Kerrville New Folk winner, a New Song and Rocky Mountain Folks Festival Finalist. He’s performed on Mountain Stage, The World Café, the Sundance Film Festival, South by Southwest, XM Loft Sessions, Acoustic Café, to name a few. Berkeley lives with his wife and two boys in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

“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.” – Creative Loafing, Atlanta

“If you're into literate soulful singer songwriters, David Berkeley is the Gabriel García Márquez of beautiful-voiced troubadours.” – KRUU
