Bravery. The new song The Hard Part from Marc Douglas Berardo forthcoming album inspires you to be brave in the darkest time. With a folk-rock groove, he takes you to a place within yourself to make changes you want to see in the world. Compassion is one of Berardos superpower ingredients in his songwriting. - MarySue Twohy, SiriusXM Program Director, SiriusXM Satellite Radio
Singer-songwriter/performer and keen observer, Marc Douglas Berardo combines songs that mine the deep feelings and lesson gleamed from real life characters and situations along with an onstage presence that uses humor and deft storytelling to rally an audience and lead them into a deep and almost spiritual experience. Its an adventure that brings to mind James Taylor, Jimmy Buffett, Guy Clark or Steely Dan with a touch of Twain or Hunter S Thompson for good measure. Its a night of laughter and tears that sends an audience home with a dollop of hope.
Rhode Island based Marc Douglas Berardo's songs have been recognized at many prestigious national festivals and events such as the The South Florida Folk Festival and The Wildflower Art and Music Festival Song Contest where he won The Performing Songwriting Contest and The Michael Terry People's Choice Award in 2014. He was a finalist in the legendary Kerrville New Folk Contest at the Kerrville Folk Festival.
In early 2015, Berardo's interview and live performance featured on Sirius/ XM Satellite Radio's, The Village was voted one of the best of the year by listeners. No Depression Magazine called his last CD Whalebone: sincere, fluid, charming and above all gripping. Berardo's 2016 interview and performance on Sirius/ XM's The Village was voted one of the best of the year by listeners. Berardo was nominated as Best Americana Vocalist by readers of Motif Magazine in early 2017.
