Berkley the Artist is that passionate voice that silences a room. He is a sensational songwriter and professional vocal coach. The New Orleans bred artist grew up singing gospel and soul in his father’s church. Berkley’s superpower is seamlessly merging classical, pop, r&b and hip-hop music into fresh, sexy and emotional records. He fills up the space in his music with striking vocals, golden melodies and a charm that makes you feel flirty. Berkley is the champagne of the modern American soul-pop movement. A true musician and entertainer.
