Well its been a busy winter so far. I have officially moved into my new digs – RavenTape Music room, Had my first solo piano show and am deep in the throws of working with my good friend Mo Glazman in New York on a new project involving three jewish cantors from 3 different jewish factions (Reform, Conservative, and Orthodox). Heres the latest and greatest:
This monday Jan 22 2017, I will be playing another solo piano show as part of The Brudock’s piano fest. This is the 3rd annual festival at one of Toronto’s best live music venues. They bring in a grand piano and book a piano centric program for a week in January every year. I will be sharing the bill with Bryce Kulak. Details on the event including ticket purchases can be found here.
After several months of demolition, painting, wiring, testing… I’m happy to announc that my new studio – RavenTape Music room – is operational. This is my new home base in the East end of Downtown Toronto. Its a creative space for me to make music by myself and with others. Feel free to get in touch with me if you want to come by and check the place out.
Now that the studio is up and running its back to work. Lydia Persaud is back in the studio with me. Following the succesful release of her EP Low Light we are getting straight to work on a full length record. So far things are sounding sweet. So keep your eyes and ears open for that later this year. I’ve also been working on a major project involving 3 New York city based cantors – Mo Glazman, Azi Schwartz, and Chaim-Dovid Berson. We have been working together for the past 6 months developing repertoire for an album that will bring together 3 Jewish Cantors from different backgrounds (Reform, conservative, and Orthodox) to make an album and concert to represent unity and celebrate the Cantor and jewish culture. Its been quite an experience working with these guys and having the opportunity to spend some time working in New York City.
Coming up in the near future I’ll be hitting the road with Donovan Woods to support his new Album which will be released in the next few months. Keep your eyes open for that. If you are interested in seeing me play in the future, check in here for updated tour dates. This will be getting updated in the next few weeks.
