I play acoustic folk, rock and Jewish spiritual music.
Do you play live?
Check out the Mishkan www.mishkanchicago.org in Chicago on Friday nights, and Aitz Hayim Center for Jewish Living www.aitzhayim.org on Saturday mornings.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
Many of these songs will help people out there looking for new music to incorporate into their prayer experiences, so it's great not to have to produce a CD to be helpful to them.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
Sure, if the circumstances were right. I wouldn't want to be taken advantage of just so that I could say I signed a contract with some big name company. I'd rather be taken seriously by a small indie label and have a better work experience. Halavai.
Indigo Girls, Dar Williams, Ani DiFranco, Murmurs, Oldies of all sorts, The Beatles, Blues of all sorts
Chicago, Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, Sun Valley, Idaho, San Francisco and the Bay Area, or any place in the world with at least one very good friend.
Acoustic guitar. If I'm lucky a friend will bring a drum and another voice to create harmony. That's really all I need.
Feel free to share the music, particularly to use any of the liturgical tunes to spice up your Jewish ritual experience.
