"[Berkeley] sings in a lustrous, melancholy voice with shades of Tim Buckley and Nick Drake. As his melodies ascend to become benedictions and consolations, the music shimmers and peals." Jon Pareles, The New York Times David Berkeley's fourth studio album Some Kind of Cure is rich with the images and tales from Corsica, a Mediterranean island where he lived for a year in a remote mountain village of 35 people. Earthy, tender, intelligent and unpredictable, his lyrics are full of reflective moments, enticing details, and emotional impact. Simultaneously he is releasing a companion book of 13 charming and funny short stories 140 Goats and a Guitar:The Stories Behind Some Kind of Cure that inform each song. These stories are always an integral part of his on hilarious on stage banter. His original song "Fire Sign" was featured on the CBS TV series Without a Trace. Career highlights include performances on This American Life, Mountain Stage, Daytrotter Session, World Cafe, Live from the Loft on XM Satellite, KCRW, WFUV, WXPN and many more. David was the recipient of ASCAP's Johnny Mercer Songwriter Award and a finalist in the Mountain Stage New Song contest 2010.
