The album is finally here! The battle to get it on iTunes is finally over and Unbroken is now available EVERYWHERE! Stream it on Spotify, download on iTunes – listen however you want. The songs speak to the freedom of discovering Judaism and the joy in choosing to be Chosen. Written after conversion to Judaism, these songs are deeply personal and I hope they inspire others in their own connections to GD and each other. We are whole, unbroken, and loved by unending love.
Going from scratch notes in a notebook to fully realized album is the result of serious teamwork. Thankfully, I had an amazing team of folks who left it all on the studio floor. Produced by dear friend and Jewish blues pioneer, Saul Kaye, and recorded at the famous Fantasy Studios in Berkley, CA and Barron Studios in Houston, TX, Unbroken features some incredible talent doing what they do best.
To everyone who added their gifts to make the music come alive, to everyone who supported the Jewcer campaign, to everyone who brought me to their communities, to everyone who believed in this and gave me the push I needed, to the communities that have shared their time and voices, to my son for always reminding me why, to my Rabbi who has been a constant source of strength and guided me through conversion, to my wife for loving me more than I could have ever hoped and leading us here, and to Gd – Thank you. Finding Judaism changed my life and my family’s life. I’m so proud to be making this music and I hope it lifts you up, brings you smiles, and makes you feel good.
