"Press Clips"

"Could Brian Bergeron be Lowell's answer to Damien Rice?"
Kathleen Deely, Music Reporter, Lowell Sun (of The Closer EP)- "The title of the EP is a good indication of what's to come--revealing, up-close & intimate vocal, writing, and singing style..."

Metronome Magazine: "Brian Bergeron is a young musician with a very promising musical career ahead of him." “His gifted songwriting talents lead him to catchy pop hook after hook. Take a snapshot of where Brian is today as a folk pop artist; he's destined to do more with his career than just rock out the local coffeehouse."

"Northeastern University News"

"Bergeron, the show's organizer, played second. A veteran of afterHOURS, Bergeron confidently played through an intense and dynamic set of songs, several of which appear on his new CD.

He enjoyed an enthusiastic reaction from the audience between his loud, emotional songs, and several moments of comic relief made Bergeron's set a good segue into the (rest of the night). - NU News

"The Glory EP Review"

"This is another impeccably produced songwriter pop record with a lazy rootsy twinge."
- The Noise (Boston)- July 2008

"The Glory EP Review"

"Brian Bergeron has an engaging voice, seemingly unadorned by studio excess or, for that matter, double tracking, harmonies and the like. It is his voice that is the high point of this five song EP" - Metronome Magazine- August 2008

"The Glory EP Review"


"Brian has a very distinct voice comparing favorably to Damien Rice or Jay Clifford of Jump, Little Children fame. This unique combination is enduring enough to appeal to the post-Phish, bobbing-head, college crowds as well as the more mature, music-minded coffee connoisseur."
- The Muse's Muse- June 2008

"The Media Room Review--We've Got To Find An Easier Way"

(April 24, 2009)

“This first full-length is exploding with talent, culminated from several EPs under his belt that had him searching for this very sound…It succeeds with what feels like an effortless transition into the growing up he’s done musically and lyrically. With tinges of alt-country and summoning the likes of Ryan Adams, Wilco and Josh Rouse, Bergeron bounces from tune to tune and fills them with a bittersweet-but-upbeat mood."
- The Media Room
