Rhode Island based Marc Douglas Berardo is a hardworking, fast moving, adventure seeking, keen
observer who lives for the story and the song. He has been nationally recognized for his music and performances (Rocky Mountain Folks Fest Song contest, Telluride Troubadour Contest, Sisters Folk Festival, 2013 RamsHead Onstage Rammie for Show of the Year). He has a gift for powerful lyrics, haunting melodies and polished story telling. His music is classic and timeless.
When not playing his songs all over the place, MDB lives in a heavily secluded and fortified compound on a river near the ocean in Westerly, RI.
Douglas Berardo’s Whalebone is a supremely crafted collection of songs about change, reemergence, strength and survival. Written with a poet’s eye for detail and an undeniable wisdom, Whalebone probes the deep feelings and struggles that accompany a life in revision and carry the listener out of darkness and into a place of hope and joy. Produced by Brother Chris Berardo (Chris Berardo and the DesBerardos) guests include Jon Pousette Dart (The Pousette Dart Band), Abbie Gardner (Red Molly), Lincoln Schleifer (Rosanne Cash, Richard Shindell, Donald Fagen). This
is an album of goose bump inducing lyrics and melodies with rich harmony vocals and masterful musicianship.
