"Berkeley is one of my favorite singer-songwriters of the past decade. His fourth studio album has "Parachute," "Homesick" and other shades of restraint. Take a car trip with me and end up in a ditch." YAHOO! Music, Rob O'Connor (25 Essential 2011 Albums that should be in Every Home)

"[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

"Emotional story-telling lyrics, charismatic stage presence, and hilarious anecdotes."”- June Wulff, The Boston Globe

"Singer-songwriter David Berkeley follows in the sweet-voiced, melancholic tradition of James Taylor." The New Yorker

"Berkeley'’s wine-dark voice and penchant for dramatically textured minor-key ballads recalls Cat Stevens at his introspective best." - American Songwriter

“There's a quiet beauty in David Berkeley's voice that carries a strength with it. He's a storyteller. He's a heart breaker. He's at once a gusting tornado and an elegant whisper."- San Francisco Chronicle

"As emotionally disarming as Nick Drake, and intellectually fascinating as Andrew Bird, David Berkeley is a standout in the new wave of indie-folk singer-songwriters." San Jose Metro

“You could call what David Berkeley does folk-pop, but it's really a kind of musical alchemy - a profound sensibility that's somehow radio-ready."- Philadelphia Inquirer

"David Berkeley'’s new album is some kind of wonderful for fans of the written and recited word.- Driftwood Magazine

“his unparalleled ability to capture passion and channel it through harmoniously arranged melodies make David Berkeley one of the best young musical poets this country has to offer.” Martina Danelaite, UR Chicago

"Often compared to Nick Drake, Tm Buckley and Donovan due to his emotive, airy vocals and pensive qualities, Berkeley crafts his songs like watercolor paintings. Intimate and introspective, his gentle yet colorful melodies are graceful and resonate long after the last note fades." Hal Horowitz, Creative Loafing

"If you're into literate soulful singer songwriters, Berkeley is the Gabriel García Márquez of beautiful-voiced troubadours." James Moore, KRUU

"His style is often called a mix of James Taylor and Cat Stevens, but David Berkeley gives his music an emotional depth that is all his own. He's a musical poet with degrees in literature and philosophy from Harvard."San Francisco Chronicle

"Berkeley's a sixties-esque troubadour with songs to swoon by and a voice sweeter than incense and peppermints. He's a double fantasy of Nick Drake and Donovan." Robin Aigner, Rolling Stone.com

"The best of the young American songwriters, a voice full of feeling and a big, big heart. And the balls to say what he thinks." - Boston Phoenix

"From the very first second I played this record I was immediately drawn to its magic. ... David Berkeley is a singular new voice to arrive on the music scene." Bruce Warren, Music Director WXPN (Philadelphia)

"[Berkeley's music] showcases his voice's broodingly romantic qualities, introspective yet emotional lyrics, and sumptuously dramatic melodies that allow ballads and mid-tempo numbers to have the swing and crackle of tasteful rock. Steven Rosen, Blurt

"David Berkeley has an easy way with a melody and writes richly detailed songs that lend themselves to repeated plays. Berkeley is part of a singer-songwriter tradition that includes players like Paul Simon, Nick Drake, James Taylor and Elliott Smith. Armed with just his voice and guitar, he lets the songs do the talking." Andrew Dansby, Houston Chronicle

"...soft and subtle as a summer drizzle falling lightly on your shoulders. Some Kind Of Cure is mellow and beautiful..." - A Thousand Guitars
