HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

i think it’s fitting that the jewish new year begins (for me, at least) with the release of a new record, so, once you’ve eaten your apples and honey and thrown bread crumbs into the river, spend part of your day on TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 14, picking up a copy of SILVER AND ASH!!!  you will find it anywhere music is sold – digitally or physically!!!!

while you wait in anticipation for the clock to strike 12 on the 14th, grab a wedge of your favorite cheese to nibble on, and read the following articles, which pave the way for the release:

THE NEW YORKER

BILLBOARD

THE FORWARD

and, if you are in LOS ANGELES on 9-13-10 or NYC on 9-16-10, come out to my cd release shows at the HOTEL CAFE and JOE’S PUB!

early reviews of the album are quite glowing:

“a softly devastating suite of songs that reveal themselves with the slow grace of an antique music box.”

“finely polished, profound and must hear record…with good arrangements, great songwriting, intellectual lyrics, beautiful tone and true inspiration, this is storytelling at its best.”

“crystalline, immaculate.”

“elegantly arranged and genuinely affecting.”
