"Whalebone is a confirmation of a true talent and an amazing artist."-Remo Ricaldone, The Long Journey Magazine, Italy.

“Whalebone is a highly polished personal collection in the tradition of many clever songwriters of the past that forged songs like short stories. These songs are on the delicate trapeze of poignancy with suave rhythms, cool as an icy summer drink back-up vocals, lots of presence and personality."-John Apice-No Depression Magazine.

"Berardo's music is like a warm breeze in March when hopes are high for a thaw."-Toledo City Paper.

Eagles meet Jackson Browne meet Neil Young
This artist really grows on you, with some pretty cool arrangements and storytelling that remind me of John Gorka, Levon Helm, and Liv Taylor. This album has some great vocals, with evocative harmonies, (The Eagles) and Marc's voice is unique & soothing. It's like listening to your best friend tell a great story, or bare his soul, or drink. Great harmonica parts, and his guitar playing is impressive. I wasn't sure I was going to like it as much as I do, but it's tough not to keep it on all the time right now. I will definitely get some more of his music. My favs are "You Are Already Gone," "My Friend," "Lightening," and "Another Song." The changes in tempo are perfect on this recording.

Purely Awesome
Another fabulous creation from MDB!! I have not stopped listening since I got it! Rarely do you find a collection that is relaxing, fun, thought-provoking, and just downright enjoyable. This may be my favorite yet, and I've worn out each one I've purchased. If you haven't listened yet, do yourself a favor! If you're already a fan, MDB has done it again. Enjoy!!! I know I am.....;)


Whalebone CD by Marc Douglas Berardo
This cd is definitely his best ever! Amazing and touches your soul .


Food for the soul
This CD has been in heavy rotation in the car and another copy in the house since it arrived. I love MDB's music and have loved all of his CDs but Whalebone has taken his music to a completely new level. The songs are heart felt and pure, the production is spot on with great arrangements and beautiful production quality and the combination of the two feed the soul. I think this is MDBs best effort to date and makes me even more excited to see where he will go in the future. My soul has been enriched, please give it a listen, you won't be disappointed.

Push Repeat!
Whalebone is a rare gift to anyone who loves music. The songs are beautiful to the ear and deeply moving to the heart and soul. One of the best CDs I've ever heard - and I hear a LOT of them. I can't stop playing it. I don't want to. Push repeat!


Whalebone, Whoa.
Marc Douglas Berardo has outdone himself this time with his new cd Whalebone. This is a record that you will play over and over again. I carry my copy wherever I go.


Whalebone is brilliant
It is rare to find a CD where you love every song - Whalebone is that rare bit of magic. Marc Douglas Berardo lets us into his world and it is a place that you will want to stay awhile. The songs are well written gems about life, love, and friendship. In a word - brilliant.
