The fourth installment of David Berkeley’s Studio Sessions series (pop up concerts by internationally acclaimed musicians in local artist studios) features LA-based Americana-soul duo Freddy & Francine, whose songs blend soul, R&B, folk, and Americana.  The duo has released two EPs and three full-length records since 2008.  Their latest, Gung Ho, featured members of Ryan Adams’, Rufus Wainwright’s, and Andrew Bird’s touring bands. Freddy & Francine have performed at the Telluride Bluegrass Festival, Rocky Mountain Folks Fest, and many others.  They are recording a new EP in Nashville this fall” with producer Dan Knobler (Rodney Crowell, Roseanne Cash, Lake Street Dive).

Praised for his lustrous, melancholy voice, Santa Fe-based songwriter and author David Berkeley will open the show with a short set. He has been a guest on This American Life, and won the Kerrville New Folk competition and ASCAPs coveted Johnny Mercer Songwriter Award.  His most recent project is a novella of intertwining short stories and an accompanying album of songs, each sung from the perspective of the stories’ main characters.

A portion of the proceeds will go to Everytown, a movement to end gun violence and build safer communities.
