    For the last two decades Jeff Berkley and Calman Hart have been entertaining audiences with their natural down-home humor and masterfully-crafted songs . In 2018, they celebrated their 20th anniversary with a live performance of their debut album, “Wreck ‘N Sow”.  Released in 2000, “Wreck ‘N Sow” was a critical success out of the box, winning the San Diego Music Award for Best Local Recording and helping Berkley Hart take home the coveted Best New Artist trophy as well. SLAMM magazine said of it, “Sometimes an album surfaces that is so emotionally and musically authentic that it crumbles resistance to its genre.”  In the years since, they’ve played festivals, performing arts centers, and house concerts all over the country,  recording  another 10 albums and winning several more awards along the way.  In 2016 alone, they put out three albums: “BHST” (with Eve Selis and Marc Intravaia), “A Berkley Hart Christmas”, and “Fleur De Lis”, a powerful collection of 20 songs combining their trademark vocal harmony and unique acoustic style to create a listening experience that is, as one critic put it, “warm and peaceful as a summer evening on the bayou”.  They have also become well-known for their theme-shows, most notably their productions of “O Berkley Where Hart Thou”, an old-timey tribute to classic Americana,  and their recreation of "The Last Waltz", a passionate homage to The Band’s 1976 farewell concert.  In 2019 Berkley Hart are still doing their best to live up to that SLAMM review of 20 years ago. Their latest release "While The Night Is Still Young" recently won the SDMA for Best Americana Album.  If early reviews of it are any indication, their reputation for performances that are “emotionally and musically authentic” is alive and well.

    2019 Songwriters Hall of Fame Inductee Jack Tempchin was briefly featured in the 2013 'History of the Eagles' documentary. You may have also heard his name referenced from the stage on the final 'History of the Eagles' World Tour by the late, great, Glenn Frey...

    Jack Tempchin is a legendary hit songwriter whose two compositions, "Peaceful Easy Feeling" and "Already Gone", are now synonymous with the Southern California Sound. Both songs are on 'Eagles: Their Greatest Hits 1971-1975', awarded *Best-Selling U.S. Album of the 20th Century* by the RIAA.

    Tempchin has five Eagles contributions total, including "The Girl From Yesterday" from the 'Hell Freezes Over' reunion release, plus "It's Your World Now" and "Somebody"​ ​both on th​eir​ final studio effort, the​ double disc release 'Long Road Out Of Eden'.

    Tempchin was first signed by Clive Davis to ​the original ​Arista Records​ label​ along with Jules Shear and Richard Stekol in a band known as The Funky Kings​ in 1976​. Retro-rocker Johnny Rivers heard the Funky Kings' Jack Tempchin track, "Slow Dancing (Swayin’ To the Music)" recorded the song and made it a Billboard Top 10 in 1977. That same year, country crooner Johnny Duncan took it Top 10 on the Country charts.​ Jack released his eponymous solo debut on Arista Records​.

    In the 1980s, Tempchin co-wrote a dozen radio hits for Glenn Frey's solo career including "True Love", "The One You Love", "Sexy Girl", "Party Town", "I Found Somebody", "Soul Searchin", "Livin' Right". More Top 40 hits are Tempchin/Frey co-writes "Smuggler's Blues" & "You Belong to The City" for the original 'Miami Vice' TV show soundtrack. These two songs were later sampled in the 90s by platinum rappers Coolio (Nature of the Business) and Jay-Z (City Is Mine), respectively.

    Famously, Tempchin's tune "Peaceful Easy Feeling" was featured in a notorious taxi scene in the Cohen Brothers cult classic, 'The Big Lebowski' starring Jeff Bridges as 'The Dude', who is unceremoniously tossed from a cab.

    "Part Of Me, Part Of You", another Tempchin/Frey classic, was the official theme song for the Oscar-award winning film 'THELMA & LOUISE'. In 2015, a Tempchin/Frey co-write was featured in David O. Russell's 'JOY" starring Jennifer Lawrence.

    Tempchin & Frey songs have also been featured in hit TV shows ​NCIS, ​7th Heaven, HBO's 'Entourage' & 'Hello Ladies', and most recently in a 'new' Hawaii 5-0 finale.
