Yoel Weiss - Esa Einai in stores

It’s not often an album is released featuring eleven songs, all composed by someone who isn’t even old enough to vote, but Esa Einai, due to be released shortly by Aderet Music, isn’t your typical album.

Featuring the vocals and compositions of fifteen year old Los Angeles yeshiva student Yoel Weiss, Esa Einai has been two and a half years in the making. It features a variety of musical styles, some more upbeat, some more heartfelt, but all written in Yoel’s unique trademark style.

Yoel displays an uncanny maturity as his songs run the gamut, ranging from the upbeat Mi Haish, originally written in part as a lullabye for Yoel’s baby sister, to the tranquil Asher Bara, composed in honor of an aunt’s wedding to No Goodbye, originally written as a tribute to Yoel’s grandparents who were making Aliyah at age ninety and then rededicated to the Holocaust generation.

The album, produced by Naftali Schnitzler, with arrangements by both Schnitzler and Ruli Ezrahi, began originally as a keepsake when Yoel recorded his first composition, V’Haya, a catchy tune that has become a family favorite. As Yoel continued composing, he continued recording his songs and in time, Yoel and his parents decided to put the songs together into an album.

In another unique twist, Sruly Meyer’s outstanding artwork was done with Chroma Depth technology, adding an extra exciting dimension to the graphics when viewed with the Chroma Depth 3D glasses that are included with the album.

“We tied the name of the album, Esa Einai, in with the unique artwork,” explained Yoel’s mother, Chani Weiss, who wrote the lyrics for the three English songs on the album. “When you put on the glasses, it takes 3D to a whole new level and the graphics are an activity on their own.”

Rounding out the album is choir work by Moishei Krausz and Shloime Kaufman with orchestration by some of Jewish music’s best including Yaron Gershovsky, Gal Gershovsky, Avi Avidani, Nachman Dryer, Larry Gee, Moishie Fried, Yossi Farkas and Shloime Cohen.

Nochi Krohn Releases A Capella Version of Banai

Almost a year ago the Nochi Krohn Band released the long awaited follow up to the critically acclaimed debut album “Ananim”. The new album entitled “Banai” was a robust album filled with life and raw emotion. ALL of the songs and arrangements are very musical and diverse. The album connected with people in more than just an entertaining way. The title track “Banai” featured special guest, R’ Yosef Karduner. This song was so special with a positive message that we needed Reb Yosef to convey it to the listener. Now as Tisha Bav approaches, is the perfect time to re-release the song as an A Capella single. The song speaks about Hashem talking to us telling us that every mitzvah and action counts, no matter how small. The new Bonai Vocal Version is available as a FREE download

Believers Official Music Video - By Moshe Hecht

Singer-songwriter Moshe Hecht just released his first music video, featuring the hit song “Believers” from his debut album “Heart is Alive.”
The video, directed by New York/Miami based filmmaker Ferrel Goldsmith of Yeoville Productions, features a young woman who is trying to return a lost item and ends up finding herself. “This video is all about the idea that faith is an inheritance passed down from generation to generation,” says Hecht. The video features the heartbeat of Moshe’s firstborn son while he was still in the womb, and is, in his words, “A reminder of our pure source.”

Moshe says he chose “Believers” for his first music video because, “It’s the one song that truly defines what I hope to convey through all of my music.”

Moshe is currently in his early stages of working on his follow-up album and, as always is on the lookout for some great inspiration.

Lipa "Hang Up The Phone" (Official Music Video)

In a futuristic take on his hit song Hang Up The Phone from his blockbuster album Leap of Faith, superstar Lipa Schmeltzer teams up with producer and director Danny Finkelman to tackle our generation's ever growing infatuation with gadgets head on, in a music video that is equal parts science fiction and practical advice for today's technologically obsessed society. In an almost other worldly dream, Lipa becomes one of a group of newly delivered high tech robots that come to life after hours at the Boro Park branch of the The Buzz, an appliance and housewares superstore. The robots' fascination with electronics is evident as they test out gadgets, both large and small, and dance their way through the store. Hang Up The Phone is an original Lipa composition and the sixth track on the newly released Leap of Faith album, with hard hitting lyrics in both English and Yiddish, written by Lipa. At just over six minutes long, the video offers a light hearted look at what we become when we spend more time interacting with our electronics than with our families and the people around us. A SparksNext Production, Finkelman and cinematographer Mauricio Arenas breathe life into Hang Up The Phone, creating a presentation that will inspire viewers to strike the necessary balance, enabling them to take advantage of today's technology in a responsible manner.
