Bio

Straight from the college town of Norman, OK, foursome Berkeley To D.C. is no easy band to label. Combining experimental writing and instrumentation with their acoustic indie-rock roots, they create an impressive synthesis of their many influences that is very easy on the ears, and perfect for your next long road trip.
Currently hard at work, tucked away writing for their debut release, Berkeley has toured for the past four years throughout the state and are poised to see their way across the state line this winter, in a jaunt through the Midwest. Earning support by playing live at every opportunity given to them, be it a living room, or a large concert hall, Berkeley has obtained a closely-knit group of devoted fans and friends.
Formed all the way back in 2004, by only frontman Eric Massey and keyboardist Jordan Doerful, what began as an acoustic coffee shop duo blossomed into a full band. Averaging over one hundred plays on myspace per day, this group shows no sign of slowing down anytime soon. To quote Chris Lusk, keyboardist of local band Hush Hush, Commotion, and veteran of the OKC music scene, "Berkeley to D.C. is a deceptive band. The first time I heard their music I was overtaken by the brilliance of their songs. They resonated such a calming beauty but at the same time, captivated me. I didn't want the music to end. However, my experience seeing Berkeley to D.C. left me with a different feeling altogether. Yes, they were playing the same enthralling songs. But instead of that peaceful feeling I got listening to their recordings, I found myself lost in the energy pouring from the stage. This group, which seemed so tranquil in record form delivered such a forceful blow, it caught me completely off guard. Berkeley to D.C. is fascinating. The passion and talent bleed out of its members. By far one of the best new bands I've heard in a long time, period."
