Garrison Starr and David Berkeley: May 5 at Urban Standard

The music of Garrison Starr and David Berkeley can only be accurately described as sincere. Each song is a statement, a story, a conversation with itself.

Garrison Starr, a country-tinged songwriter from Hernando, Mississippi, is set to release her seventh studio album, Amateur, on May 1st. Garrison’s music Between the Devil’s Rain and a Dying Language, the first single released from the album, hints at a more relaxed and experimental vibe for the album, with less of a country influence than some of her other work.

David Berkeley is a soulful songwriter that reaches the highest level of sensitivity without sacrificing his manhood in any way. Berkeley is proof that there is still room for beauty in music. His song The Blood and the Wine showcases his emotional, minimalist songwriting as well as his mastery of the English language itself. He has released four studio albums and a book titled 140 Goats and a Guitar, which acts as a literary supplement to his latest album Some Kind of Cure.

Together, the duo is a match made in heaven. Or maybe it was just made in a dusty hole-in-the-wall bar somewhere. Whichever way you like to think of it, the pair just makes sense. They are currently on tour throughout the US and will be stopping in Birmingham on Saturday, May 5 to perform at Urban Standard (2320 2nd Avenue North). This ALL AGES show starts at 7 pm. Tickets are $12 in advance or $15 at the door. Tickets can be purchased in advance at
