**Now including David Berkeley's 'Fire Sign,' recently featured on the CBS-TV show 'Without a Trace.' 'From the very first second I played this record I was immediately drawn to it's magic.' --Bruce Warren, Program Director WXPN in Philadelphia. Berkeley's second CD, After the Wrecking Ships, has overtones of Coldplay, Grant Lee Phillips, new Beck, Ryan Adams. It debuted as the 6th most added record to Non-commercial and Triple A Radio nationwide. It is already being played on WXPN in Philly; KCRW in Los Angeles; WFUV in New York; WXRV in Boston; WTMD in Towson MD; WCBE in Columbus, OH; KTBG in Kansas City; KSLU in Hammond, Lousiana; KSUT in Ignacio, CO; KUWR in Laramie, WY; KVNF in Paonia, CO; Maine Public Radio; WERS in Boston; WFCR in Western Mass; and XM Satellite Radio. Recorded in a basement in New Paltz, Berkeley's talented band (Adam Buchwald--mandolins, mandola, banjo, dobro; Alex Weinstein--guitars, Rhodes, baritone guitar; Tyler Gibbons--electric and tenor bass; Dave Richards--upright bass; Jon Natchez--alto and bari sax; Frisbay--piano, flute and trombone; Greg Beyer--percussion; Andy Eggers--drums; Dan Vonnegut--drums; Rebecca Fanya--background vocals) is brighter and more powerful than ever. The songs on this new collection are grittier than those on The Confluence. The emotional pallette is broader. If the Confluence is perfect for a Sunday afternoon, After the Wrecking Ships is perfect for a Saturday evening. Berkeley's voice is rich and warm as ever. His lyrics take on an ever-widening subject matter with passion and grace. There is poetry here and dramatic melodies that will stick. 'He 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 'He's a double fantasy of Nick Drake and Donovan.' --Rollingstone.com 'With a warm tenor voice, tightly controlled delivery and quietly restrained guitar, Berkeley evokes the work of Ralph McTell, Donovan and Nick Drake.' --SingOut! 'It is reminiscent of Simon & Garfunkel doing something pretty serious with Natalie Merchant and makes the likes of poor old David Gray seem laughable in terms of sheer absence of charisma and songs.' --Americana UK.
