David Berkeley Returns to The Backyard Sessions
The Backyard Sessions
Albquerque, NM
Share this event:

Celebrated singer songwriter/author (and our friend) David Berkeley is coming back to our house on Sunday April 7th. If you have seen David before at our house then you know, but if you haven't yet, trust us, this will be a beautiful and moving evening of songs and stories in the most intimate and serene settings. Cut out the noise and drink minimums and parking hassles of bars and venues. Tear down the stages and lights that separate artist from audience. Remember the salons of 1920s Paris? This is the model. Space is limited, so get your ticket now. In the spirit of community, bring your own drinks (and possibly your own chair). David will be joined by his outstanding multi-instrumentalist from Atlanta, Will Robertson. Doors at 6:30. Music will start at 7.

More on David:
Santa Fe-based songwriter/author (and our friend) David Berkeley has been called "a musical poet" by San Francisco Chronicle, "a double fantasy of Nick Drake and Donovan" by Rolling Stone, and praised for his "lustrous, melancholy voice" by The New York Times. Berkeley has released seven albums and authored two books. He's been a guest on This American Life and has won the Kerrville New Folk Competition and ASCAPs coveted Johnny Mercer Songwriter Award.  Berkeley has opened/toured with Adele, Mumford & Sons, Ray LaMontagne, Billy Bragg, Ben Folds, Don McLean, Dido, Rufus Wainwright, Joseph Arthur, Duncan Sheik, Colin Hay, Nickel Creek and Guster. He has performed on Mountain Stage, World Cafe, WFPKs Live Lunch, XM/Satellite Loft Sessions, Daytrotter, KCRW, WFUV, WXPN, KPFA and many, many more. His most recent project is a novella of intertwining short stories and an accompanying album of songs, each sung from the perspective of the stories main characters. Its an incredible combination that, like most of Berkeleys art, manages to both break and heal the heart.

In the midst of touring with his duo project Son of Town Hall, Berkeley has been busy writing and recording a batch of political songs that speaks to our divided and troubled times.  "The Faded Red and Blue" comprises five songs covering the central topics that have filled the airwaves and newspapers for the past two years: Trump, gun violence, immigration, the environment, even suicide. "I have two young sons, Berkeley explains. "These past two years have been particularly tough for me not only as a songwriter but also as a father. Though I found it easy to write about what was angering me, I wanted to do more than just rant. I didnt want to widen an already gaping divide. Thats not really why I write songs." Berkeley has managed to find hope, despite the subject matter. "So Ive tried to find some common ground, maybe even some shared humanity, he continues. I wrote them as much for me as for you. And I wrote them for my boys. To remind us all that we still live in a world that is worth loving, that is still worth holding dear." The release comes at a time in our national history where we so need a voice that can spread compassion and encourage unity.
