Hello and welcome to Discovery Corner on BTR!

Imagine if a character from your favorite novel leapt from the page and into a recording studio…

Ishmael–fresh off the docks from seafaring afar–might bawl and bellow into the microphone with the gusto of a drunken sea song. Jay Gatsby would croon smooth velvet from the vocal booth, and Holden Caulfield’s pre-adolescent sneers of indifference might be well-suited for an angsty punk rock verse.

Short of our imaginations, the world will never hear these moments. Singer-songwriter David Berkeley, however, is bridging the marriage between fiction and music into a reality. His newest record, Cardboard Boat, is slated for release on September 25th, and will be accompanied by a book of short stories titled The Free Brontosaurus courtesy of Rare Bird Lit.

In the meantime we’ll check out some songs from David Berkeley’s most recent release, The Fire In My Head.

And don’t forget to check out the Discovery Artist feature on David Berkeley!
