"Downhauler's sound has an affinity with the Californian folk-rock of the 1970's. The CD targets a mature audience.Narrative simplicity in the best sense of the word.-Johnny's Garden Magazine, Netherlands-Rein van den Berg
"Stunning, sharply drawn Americana song portraits."
"Downhauler just blew me away. What a great collection of songs!"
"Berardo sounds like a fishing-town Bruce Springsteen (in Nebraska mode), a soft-toned Don Henley, or a James Taylor with a literary side. The comparisons to singer-songwriter greats are infinite. They're also apt."-Fairfield County Weekly, CT. -4.3.08
"Berardo’s most recent CD, “Harbor”, is arguably his finest work to date and the best acoustic album I’ve heard in years."
"Harbor is an explanation in tone poem... Hollywood could make a movie based on this song alone. A few listens to Harbor might have you wondering if this praise is high enough."
