Hello everyone! A brief update to let you know that I am busy in the studio, working on my second solo CD, this time with a great producer and good friend, Ken Rich.
About a year ago, Mike and I heard our friend, the fabulous John Putnam, playing with William Hart Strecker down at the Rodeo Bar in NYC. I really liked their intact band sound and asked John if he thought this band could come record my songs with me. From there, the wheels were in motion. What I didn't know was that Ken, the bass player in the band, was also a studio owner and record producer!
We are working on ten original songs of mine, some with strings, some with backing vocals, some horns and even a few woodwinds! I will post music on my website as soon as possible. I do hope you will enjoy the music as much as I have enjoyed making it for you!
My album will feature: Deborah Berg on vocals and acoustic guitar Ken Rich on bass John Putnam on guitar Andrew Sherman on keyboards Frank Vilardi on drums
P.S. Counting the three Eye to Eye albums, this project will be my fifth CD!

News from Julian:
Hello from England! I'm pleased to share with you news of my new endeavor: The London Song Company (formerly the Songwriters Collective).
The passionate core of The London Song Company is in recognising the value of the song, song writing and performance for its potent, unique, means of expression, its musical poetry and powerful story telling power - a window into a world in a few minutes.

We're offering four 12 Songs intensive weekends in 2011, designed for those already engaged in songwriting and performance, and who relish the opportunity of an intensive, focused, and fun weekend ending with a BIG GIG:
March 25-27, 2011 (London)

"Better than Joni Mitchell and Patsy Cline!"
--Heather B. (Jersey City, NJ)
"My six-year-old daughter loves the tunes, sings along as best she can to the words, and I join in with her. Honestly, there's no other music in my library I've heard more often and never get tired of."
--Buzz C. (Burnsville, NC)
"I first heard "Nice Girls" on the radio as a 19 year old...it was one of those magic moments that stays with you forever...You still sound as fresh as you did over 20 years ago and I'm really looking forward to future albums."
--John C. (Auckland, New Zealand)
"I love Eye to Eye music and have for 20 years...because it makes me smile."
--Gary Katz, Steely Dan producer
"You put my favorite song on MySpace: 'Love Is Not Blind.' You made me cry again, Deborah."
--Tony L. (Brooklyn, NY)
"I've been searching for this song, "Nice girls" for 25 years. I was 15 years old when when I first heard it... I was a young boy from Alabama who'd never been outside of the state... Deborah's voice perfectly framed the summer of that year - exciting, clear, and full of optimism. The last time I heard this song was that summer, long ago in 1983. I was never able to find it again and believe me I tried!... I had resigned myself to the possibility that I would never hear it again.
Well, I'm 40 years old now and I've traveled all over the world... I just rediscovered this timeless song... Deborah's voice still makes me hopeful... as hopeful as that ruddy little boy milling about under the vast night sky 25 years ago."
--Reggie (Seattle, WA)
I'm so glad that Eye to Eye is back. Love the new album (Deborah's voice is wonderful; one of those life's pleasures). Hope there's more to come!"
--Randy N. (Shelton, CT)
"This is the best new, old music that I have heard in a long time...Just as all of the reviews that I have read reflect - Great Work!"
--Jim O. (Shreveport, LA)
"Sometimes, when you haven't heard from someone in decades, you wonder 'what would they have to say today?' 'Scenes From A Wishing Well' is a pleasant answer to that question--You guys still have it."
--George S. (Pasadena, CA)
