Called "a musical poet" by the San Francisco Chronicle, Santa Fe based songwriter and author David Berkeley comes to Houston armed with his guitar and "a voice sweeter than incense and peppermints," according to Rollingstone.com. Berkeley was a guest on "This American Life" and has performed with artists including Adele, Mumford and Sons, Rufus Wainwright, Dido, Billy Bragg, Don Mclean and Ray Lamontagne.
Berkeley has released 5 albums and authored a book. The book, "140 Goats and a Guitar" tells the stories that inspired the songs on his last album "Some Kind of Cure." His concerts are both emotional and funny, as he weaves his often hilarious stories into his moving songs. He'll be performing this concert with his ambient guitarist Bill Titus.
His new album, The Fire In My Head, started with Berkeley's move to Santa Fe with his family in August of 2012. Santa Fe (and new friend, fellow musician, Jono Manson) ignited, yet, another brilliant poetic masterpiece that sings beautifully. In his own words, Berkeley says, "There is a spontaneity and spirit in these recordings that I'm not sure are in any of my others. My voice, I believe, is more relaxed, a testament to the vibe in Santa Fe."
"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." Jon Pareles, The New York Times
