OXFORD – Saturday, at 7:30 p.m. 6 On The Square (6OTS) is proud to present, recording artist Marc Douglas Berardo. An award winning singer-songwriter, Marc has a powerful voice and a painter’s eye for detail. He writes what amounts to song-length works of fiction, imbued with the emotion that inspired them. With music firmly rooted in the great American sound, you are invited to take a virtual journey with Marc Douglas Berardo.
Marc Douglas Berardo lives on the river near Westerly, R.I. His wanderlust has taken him to warm and exotic locales, both real and invented, which has inspired him to pen portraits of unusual and beguiling characters and places for his music. Berardo sings about circus retirees, expatriates in Florida rum bars, union iron workers, old poets, near death car crashes, hard nosed fishermen and of course, the changes that experience brings to everyone. He does this “simply and well” with what Rambles Cultural Magazine calls: “careful images and great tunes.”
With five CDs under his belt and another on the way, Marc wrote, “I try to write about people and situations that interest and entertain me. At the same time, I need the music itself to take me somewhere… to make me feel something. The words have to sing and the music has to work. The kind of song that does those things is my idea of a good time.”
Marc’s songs have been recognized in many of the Country’s biggest song contests and awards from across the U.S. Most recently, in 2011, he was a nominee for the Best Male Vocalist from Motif Magazine, and this year he was named DJ’s “Best of Top 10” Year End Pick by The Village-XM/Sirius Radio.
Motif Magazine of Providence, RI, writes “.....Marc Douglas Berardo writes stunning, sharply drawn Americana portrait-like stories that are excellent.”..
