Nothing like some sweet Americana for the soul. No frills, no fluff, just a catchy melody and wholesome lyrics. Los Angeles singer-songwriter, Eddie Berman has shared a pleasing DIY video for his latest track reveal “Easy Rider.” The song is the lead single off Berman’s forthcoming album Before The Bridge, which will be released by Nettwerk Records this summer. Watch Berman’s new video for “Easy Rider” below! Get ready for this lovely gem to get stuck in your head.
Writing songs since he was a California teenager, Eddie Berman’s bedroom demos quickly grabbed the attention of KCRW 89.9 FM where his music began to play. Not too long after, Berman performed across North America and Europe. He even sold out a residency in London, performing for thousands of people alongside Laura Marling. It was in 2013 while making a live EP with Marling that Berman realized the way he wanted to make records was to completely strip the process down. That right there is the exact beauty and charm of “Easy Rider.” You can hear that same alluring simplicity all throughout his debut album, Polyhymnia.

There’s going to be a creaking chair here and there. A solo isn’t going to be perfect. You’re not going to sing that line the way you’d planned it. But I love that,” says Berman. “Why overcomplicate these things?”[/perfectpullquote]
