David Berkeley – Strange Light & Other Mysteries

We heard Mr. Berkely last week at Daytrotter.com from his showcase concert on May 16, 2010.  What a nice find.  Soulful acoustic storytelling with a voice never grating nor aggravating.  Some Sufjanic style trumpet flourishes here, and over there a voice with pacing not unlike Damien Rice.  Did I hear a banjo?  Wow.  This is cruising to the lake-in-the-woods music with the love of your life scooted over close on the front bench seat of your faded blue 63′ Chevy Bel Air.
