Singer/songwriter David Berkeley channels the earthy spirit of Donovan, Nick Drake, and Elliott Smith with his fusion of finger-plucked guitar ballads and tastefully arranged pop/rock. After setting up shop in Brooklyn, Berkeley made his proper debut in 2002 with The Confluence, followed by a string of releases that highlighted his tenor vocals and nuanced, autumnal songwriting. Outlets such as KCRW and Rolling Stone championed his work, and Berkeley continued issuing material as the decade drew to a close, with Strange Light appearing in 2009. ~ Andrew Leahey
