Lustrous, Melancholy Singer David Berkeley Confirms US Tour Ahead Of New EP The Faded Red And Blue, Out November 2
Berkeley follows in the sweet-voiced, melancholic tradition of James Taylor – THE NEW YORKER
He’s a musical poet – SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE
Acclaimed songwriter and author David Berkeley has confirmed his US Fall/Winter tour. See below for confirmed dates. The run of dates kick off just before his November 2 EP release, a hopeful collection of politically minded songs, The Faded Red and Blue. The release will mark Berkeley’s first new music since his widely praised 2015 album Cardboard Boat and his accompanying novella The Free Brontosaurus.
“I actually began writing this batch of songs just after the American presidential election in November of 2016,” says Berkeley. “I was in Washington, D.C., on tour with my new duo project Son of Town Hall. My bandmate Ben Parker and I wandered into the National Museum of American History and found ourselves standing in front of the American Flag that inspired the writing of the Star Spangled Banner. That beautiful old flag was profoundly and surprisingly moving. It looked particularly fragile. Like our democracy itself, it was worn and weathered. It seemed to be nearly falling apart. I felt both a great love and a great fear for our union on that day. I still feel that. I finished these songs in the spring of 2018 shortly after the Parkland shooting.
His new release is perhaps even more powerful, coming at a time in our national history where we so need a voice that can spread compassion and encourage unity.
