"From incidental and unplanned beginnings, St. Paul de Vence has emerged out of one genuine step after another into the band they are today.  Indeed, they bring forth a sound that grows so directly out of who they are, weaving together their multi-instrumental and vocal-harmony talents with a natural ease and joy reminiscent of Crosby, Stills, and Nash.  When band member Benjamin Doerr began to write songs about his grandfather's early life fighting with the Free French Forces in WWII, it was uncertain, as well as unplanned, how quickly they would be received.  From first listen, friends were raving about how the demos of these nostalgic songs were some of Doerr's finest and truest work so far.  Soon after, long-time collaborators joined the journey to expand the work into something ever grander.  Upon a story of youth, war, love and life that sits so close to Doerr  and, indeed, most of humanity  was built an artistic structure that continues to drive this group to new creative places."


"Santa Fe-based songwriter and author David Berkeley writes songs capable of both breaking and mending the
heart. 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's released five studio albums, one live album and authored a book. Berkeley's current project comes out September 25th, 2015. It's his most exciting and ambitious yet: a novella comprising ten intertwining stories and an album of ten accompanying songs (one for each story). "
