My name is Jeff Berman and this is Divided Heaven.
On Pacific Avenue: The songs were about my new experiences: topics such as office politics, marriage pressure, surfing, adapting to Los Angeles, living thousands of miles from where I grew up, looking into my thirties, seeing my friends climb the ladders of success while I just sat there on that number 7 bus crawling down Pico Boulevard wondering what the hell I was doing with my life…. I just kept writing songs and I haven’t stopped. My journal, in many ways, became my best friend, my sanctuary and my weapon.
When I hear these songs I hear a different side of Divided Heaven: I hear the buses, I hear the doldrums, I hear the evening waves crashing on the beach, I hear my vibrant Venice neighborhood, I hear Ben and I working through ideas in his shoebox apartment, I hear myself wading through the complications of adulthood, I hear myself struggling to love and be loved, and I hear a part of myself that was longing for more and achin’ to be. I hear myself trying to be friends with Los Angeles and feeling nothing but indifference in return, and yet these songs could’ve only come to be in Los Angeles.
