Some kind words:

“(Critics’ Pick) A beautiful tapestry of folk, indie and glam rock, grounded by his engaging vocal capacities. Do yourself a favor and check out his Be Brave debut.”
-Time Out New York

“Completely alluring…as if he polished Bowie’s uncertain shrieks and hollers into a marbled, intrepid sheen. A feat in and of itself, Berger recorded the album entirely by himself while still producing something as grand, spacious and ambitious as Be Brave tends to be… theatrical, multi-layered vocal harmonies shine throughout the album, telling stories of love, nature, cities and people in a remarkably engaging way. Auditorium is beginning to make waves in LA and beyond – get on board now before your friends are barking at you about it in a few months.”
-I Guess I’m Floating

“I had one of those thrilling “tell all your friends about this band immediately” moments that leads to a series of mass gchat and facebook linking…there’s an inherent and unrelenting beauty in Be Brave that is impossible to ignore.”
-Crawdaddy

“Gentle pop bliss.”
-You Ain’t No Picasso

“There’s delicacy in his deft approach, with his sweeping vocals and ornate acoustic settings rekindling memories of Mike Love and the Beach Boys.”
-M Music & Musicians Magazine

“A one man terror…he played all the parts, the most striking of which is his opera-trained voice, layered and woven into indelible harmonies and tucked neatly into velvety production…full of whismy and wit.”
-Kevin Bronson, Buzz Bands

“Genius.”
-Music Vagabond

“Be Brave comes on like a Bowie/Mercury lovechild, reminding the world that it once was cool to be grandiloquent, and could be again…This is bold music, and a bold statement for a debut LP, effortlessly rising to its own titular challenge.”
-Melophobe

“One of the freshest releases of the year…Wonderfully engrossing.”
-Culture Catch

“Unique as hell…Berger creates a sound unlike anything else…Across all its tracks Berger imbues Be Brave with a sense of elegance and panache.”
-Glide Magazine.

“The work of an introverted genius…A rich tapestry of heroism, hope and ultimately beautiful music…After five days of listening to it on repeat I’m still not bored.”
-The Justin Wayne Show

“Part theatrical, part angelic…Rests itself comfortably on a higher plane.”
-Sick of the Radio

“A genre-defying stunner.”
-Best New Bands

“I reckon that it was genius.”
-Recharged Radio

“Among the most creative [music] being produced today- a truly engaging sound that can’t be categorized by a genre.”
-IndieMuse

“With little more than an acoustic guitar and his own multi-tracked vocals, Berger evokes such glittering space cadets of yore as Bowie, Donovan, Marc Bolan & Freddie Mercury.”
-Metromix

“Four Stars…Extraordinary…Berger’s got a knack for making the most out of his minimalism…A most impressive first album, by any standard.”
-Masslive

“Quivering, unearthly…variety to spare, from the glammy ‘Girls Will Love Your Lips’ to the folksy dirge of ‘New York Sky’.”
-Modern Tonic

“Entirely wonderful.”
-John Shelton Ivany’s Top 21

“It’s like seeing something that gives you a better appreciation of life. Listening to Be Brave…you do end up feeling brave & uplifted.”
-Critiqulous

“It only takes 2:03 to realize how perfect this all is.”
-32ft/second

“Probably one of the best male vocalists I’ve ever heard in my life.”
-California Diner

“Gorgeous…This is an album for sitting by the fire, drinking hot cocoa and making out. Fantastic music for fantastic things.”
-Slacker Sounds

“This will be award-winning.”
-The Justin Wayne Show

“A ‘vocalist’s vocalist.’ It’s just incredible.”
-Twirl Radio

“The best music of ’10 that first appeared in ’09.”
-1000x/minute

“Full of open spaces and possibility. It’s sincere without being syrupy and intimate without being self-conscious. It’s also subversively funny…watch his video for “I’m The Enforcer” as Berger (torso only) walks through the streets of L.A., enforcing kindness everywhere he goes. He’s a one-man-bedroom-band-musical-stimulus package.”
-Shawn Amos, GetBack
