David Gergen / Press

““The Streets I’m Walkin” is an upbeat number that sounds like the desert. I can imagine cowboys, Marlboro cigarette ads, canyons, red sand, heat and a saloon somewhere along the way as the song plays. “Thru a Fairy’s White Cloud”, sounds like Nick Drake if the guy ever went electric (and remarkably creepier).”

“For a solo artist to garner comparisons to greats like Nick Cave, Nick Drake and Leonard Cohen is quite a tall order, yet Los Angeles native David Gergen manages to do just that with his self-released fourth release, The Nearer It Was…The Farther It Became”

“David Gergen takes acoustic indie rock places it rarely goes, especially on one record. Bending ambience on Seven Miles to Sunset, throbbing electronics on Ore De Electro, along with bluesy slide guitar on The Streets I’m Walking, there’s a taste of everything on Gergen’s latest solo release (his fourth), The Nearer it Was…The Farther It Became. His voice, though consistently deep and resonant evokes the spirits of Nick Cave, Nick Drake and Leonard Cohen”

“What I like most about the music is its sheer unpredictability & amazing originality. Song for song you can never really predict what’s waiting for you around the next corner.”
