"Whalebone is a confirmation of a true talent and an amazing artist."-Remo Ricaldone, The Long Journey Magazine, Italy.

“Whalebone is a highly polished personal collection in the tradition of many clever songwriters of the past that forged songs like short stories. These songs are on the delicate trapeze of poignancy with suave rhythms, cool as an icy summer drink back-up vocals, lots of presence and personality."-John Apice-No Depression Magazine.


"Berardo has a magical way of bringing you into the story. You don't want the song to end."-Jane Falvey, Host, Kingston Coffeehouse, WRIU-FM.

"His lonesome, clear voice easily carries an aching beauty." -Minor Seventh Magazine

 

Wildflower Arts and Music Festival, Richardson, TX May 16-18. 















I am very honored (as well as "primed" and "stoked") to be a finalist in the 2014 Wildflower Art and Music Festival in Richardson, TX, May 16-18.
When you make up songs, this kind of recognition gives you the fuel to carry on. I was at Wildflower in 2006.
Glad to be asked again. It might even feel like a comeback. (This is my first use of the words "primed" and "stoked.")

A review of Whalebone at Minor Seventh 

Here is a review of Whalebone in this month's Monor Seventh by Jamie Anderson.





Full review herehttp://www.minor7th.com/shorttakes2_14.html

"This soulful singer-songwriter with the gritty edge offers a solid collection of originals with an interesting look at life, from ruminations about a relationship ("Our Troubles") to a poignant story about a counter-culture character named "Lightning," always with his acoustic guitar at the center and a full band on these rock/folk songs."
