is a friend of a friend. he was the manager for my friend (from high school) tyler’s band, “the humming”, whom he met at harvard. tyler plays bass on berkeley’s albums, and robin macarthur (who also went to high school – and brown – with me) sings backing vocals. jakob charkey (also of my high school) plays cello on the first album. robin has her own album out on berkeley’s label, “ten good records”, and i believe that her father made berkeley’s mandolin. great people, all of them.
last i heard from robin and tyler, they were living in a cabin with no electricity or running water.
