There's a warmth and immediacy to David Berkeley's music, which comes through all the more vividly in this live rendition of "Shelter".

“Shelter” comes from singer-songwriter David Berkeley’s 2013 album The Fire in My Head. According to Berkeley, the original version of “Shelter” was recorded in one take, which “lends the song and the whole album an intimacy that is hard to preserve when you spend too much time trying to make things perfect.” This live rendition of “Shelter”, captured by videographer Ehud Lazin backstage before a NYC date, might feel even warmer and more immediate than the original.

  
The performance video of “Shelter” premieres here on PopMatters; The Fire in My Head is out now on Berkeley’s own Straw Man label.
