Written, recorded, and performed by Aaron Berg, these seven songs represent volume one of the podcast ‘Love and Coffee’. Although he toured over 15,000 miles in 2007 from the East Coast to California and back, ‘Love and Coffee’ is recorded in a two-room garage apartment in Berg’s native South Carolina. On the song, ‘Behind Closed Doors’, a chorus of crickets can be heard roaring through the windowpanes from the garden outside. The piano used throughout is a 19th century carved upright grand passed down as a family heirloom.
Because of the simple recording setup the music is largely folk-based, but also draws from blues, rap, and country. Berg’s live performances are not to be missed blending bizarre tales of the road with comedic quips and mysterious one-liners. Critic’s have described the live show as “riveting and uplifting from one hypnotic twist to the next...” and “...another Dylan on the cusp of something else very big.” Volume two of ‘Love and Coffee’ is due out in March. Berg’s second full length studio album entitled ‘River Taxi Man’ will be released in the Fall of 2009.
