North Forty is a guitar based band from Southeastern Pennsylvania formed around the songs of singer songwriter Dave Berdoulay.
In 2004 Dave and his brother Alan were in Target Studios with producer Marc Moss recording the basic tracks to what would become North Forty's first C.D. titled "Raised On Reverb" . There they were introduced to drummer Brad Fish who soon expressed his interest in Dave's music and suggested getting bass player Sharon Gould to join them and practice the music for a few months before returning to the studio to complete the album together.
Dave and Alan soon realized they had found two musicians who shared their vision of how Dave's songs should sound. With Alan on lead guitars, pedal steel guitar and dobro, they returned to the studio and were able to capture twenty plus songs done in a live set up. Out of these, eleven were selected for the album. Only two of these have any over dubbing.
The band's sound has been described as Americana, Roots Rock and Alternative Country. The album has been well received locally and has had local airplay . North Forty Is always working on new material and will return to the studio in 2009 to record their second album of new songs.

If you like songs in roots/rock,with a little harder edge, check out "Without A Net" or "Firin' Line' and "Don't You Love Me".
"Leave It Alone" is more alternative/country with nice pedal steel." I Know What Love Was", "Sounds Good", "New Thing Comin'" and "Scene Of The Crime" are also a bit more mellow and singer/songwriter style.
"All Your Heart" is a love song kinda country /blues, a bit folk/rock. "Friends" is more traditional country.
