David Berman, a singer-songwriter who formed the 1990s indie group
Silver Jews as well as creating poetry and cartoons, has died,
according to music label Drag City. He was 52.
He was due to start a tour with his new project Purple Mountains on
Saturday in New York. The tour had set dates across the country,
concluding in Los Angeles on Sept. 23. After Berman had taken a break
from music for several years, Purple Mountains had released an album on
July 12, which features songs including “All My Happiness Is Gone” and
“Maybe I’m the Only One for Me.”
Drag City called him “a great friend and one of the most inspiring
individuals we’ve ever known.”
