"CD Review"

Chasing Clarence's "a tempo" is the latest project from singer-songwriter Eric Bervig. A natural artist, Eric feels the pulse of the world we live in and makes his goal to express that in lyric and music. He is willing to stop and wonder why we live the way we do and ask whether or not we should. This honest receptivity and insight gives flavor and hope to his music. Rather than canned pop with a hip-swaying beat, Eric's heart is to write and play music that expresses a profound depth to life that will move more than just your bones. His latest project, under the name Chasing Clarence, “a tempo” (musical terminology meaning simply: ‘return to the original tempo’) spells a return to motion and a new beginning for Eric.

Having lived in the north country of Minnesota most of his life, Eric now hails from Park Rapids where he and his wife Jennie live with their five children. Eric has been creating music for over ten years, recorded an album, and toured with several bands. Stylistically, Chasing Clarence is a new chapter in Bervig's musical history. In "a tempo", Bervig adds banjo, keys, mandolin, and other delightful instrumentation to his foundation of acoustic guitar resulting in a fresh, intriguing style that defies genre.

Chasing Clarence is about finding the groove in your life, not just a self-satisfying funk, but living for all that we were meant to be. This summons is universal and sets a hopeful challenge to each listener. Join Eric in “a tempo” – you’ll be glad you did. - Park Rapids Enterprise
