A 28-year-old veteran of the Gainesville, Florida music scene, Berg blends acoustic roots, folks and alternative rock with crafty lyrics and a pinch of pop sensibility - a recipe for engaging songs with artistic flare. This formula for success is readily evident on Berg's latest release, Somewhere Between - a collection of upbeat songs with melodic hooks, recorded live, solo acoustic in one four-hour session at Rec Room Recording Studios in Gainesville. Somewhere Between captures an intimate, in-your-living-room feel that makes Berg's music so personal to the listener. The tenor of Somewhere Between ranges from the feel-good, upbeat 'Things Remembered' to the reflective, somber 'Goodbye.' In between, 'Here's To Hoping' offers a sense optimism amidst indifference, while the title track 'Somewhere Between' takes the listener on a journey through the catharsis of songwriting. 'All I Want' follows a stream-of-conscience glance at the psyche of a typical 18-24-year-old male, while '1989' takes a fun look back at a time where little else mattered but getting caught up in life. A energetic version of 'Letters From Picasso' is the crossroads of Somewhere Between, fusing together Berg's passionate lyricism and the core of his musical influences.
