About the Musician:
I''ve been shouting into a mic and breaking strings since the mid 70s in varying situations, from accompanying other local vocalists, to rock and blues cover bands as well as original combos throughout New England. I''ve been writing tunes for about as long.
Im difficult to work with, I am told. Be advised that the people telling me that are the same individuals who couldnt simply get it together and just do things exactly as I commanded them to. After several attempts at creating a decent band to cover my original stuff, I quit the idea and started just doing it myself.
About the Music
These guitar-propelled tunes are typically tinted on the blue side, musically speaking. Elements of Blues, R&B and the occasional Twang are hybrid with a Rock sensibility, the recipe calling for light on experimentation and introspection, and heavy on the pulse and groove of the song.
Influences include BB King, Elvis Costello, John Prine, Cake, Chili Peppers, T Rex, Little Feat...but some of this mess I take full responsibility for.
Here are some excerpts from recent reviews of my material:
DEMORAMA''S TOP HONORS "KICKERS OF ASS" LIST FOR 2002, REVIEW BY LUIS FISKE: "Bergeron deftly carries both the bluesman look and the sound. With a solid voice that''s a combo of David Clayton-Thomas, Springsteen (sans the pretentiousness) and his own stylings, Bergeron nimbly handles a variety of sounds, touching on jazz, blues, folk, country and intelligent pop."
SPARECHANGE MAGAZINE''S LADY K, LIVIN IN THE VALLEY REVIEW: "Vocally and musically, he fits this (blues) genre like a key into a lock. If you like bands like the Fabulous Thunderbirds, be sure to give this guy a listen."
MUSES MUSE REVIEWER STACEY BOARD: "Guy''s bio says he is a native of Massachusetts but someone must be UPSing him some grits and gravy. This east coast man has more than his share of twang and blues in his music."
