Singer/Songwriter Dave Berg has signed a worldwide co-publishing agreement with Los Angeles and New York-based Downtown Music Publishing, and his upcoming full length album Not Quite So Alone will be released by Downtown imprint Mercer Street Records.
Berg’s credits as a country songwriter include the No. 1 hits “Somebody” by Reba McEntire, “If You’re Going Through Hell (Before the Devil Even Knows)” and “These Are My People” by Rodney Atkins, and “Moments” by Emerson Drive. He has received Songwriter of the Year honors from ASCAP, Billboard, and NSAI. In 2007, his co-written song “Stupid Boy” recorded by Keith Urban, earned a Grammy for Best Country Vocal Performance. Recent activity includes “Wine After Whiskey” which appears on Carrie Underwood’s latest album Blown Away, and “While He Still Knows Who I Am,” which Kenny Chesney cut for Welcome to the Fishbowl.
“Dave is simply an extraordinary talent,” said Justin Kalifowitz, President of Downtown Music Publishing. “In addition to writing some of the biggest Country hits of the past five years, Dave’s latest album is a testament to his craft as a true singer/songwriter. We are excited to be working with Dave and his management team of Martha Earls and Mike Molinar at Big Machine.”
Earls and Molinar will continue to represent Berg locally in Nashville.
