ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
So a Muslim, a Christian, and a Jew walk onto a stage...

It's no joke. Abraham Jam is a trio of internationally-renowned musicians who have teamed up to create music that is strengthened by the differences they bring to the table. Abraham Jam believes in the healing power of music to dissolve the illusion of separateness, song by song.

Billy Jonas, David LaMotte, and Dawud Wharnsby are three 'brothers' from the three Abrahamic faiths. Individually, they are well-respected and well-loved artists, cumulatively performing over 10,000 concerts in all fifty states and almost every continent, and releasing more than thirty-five albums over the last few decades. When they join forces, the sum is even greater than its individual parts.

“Harmony is even better than unity,” says LaMotte. “We don’t have to sing the same note to create beauty, we can sing different notes that draw out the beauty in each other.”

The band launched a successful Kickstarter campaign to raise the funds to record not one, but two CDs. The first, Abraham Jam Live, was taken from a concert in Asheville, NC, and the second, White Moon, is a studio album, released in 2019. The campaign raised over $48,000 from 555 backers.

The band realizes that their choice to record both albums within a year is unusual. "A live record is basically a photograph," Wharnsby says. "You can manipulate it a bit afterward in the darkroom, but basically it is a record of what happened. A studio album, on the other hand, is a painting. There are infinite options for aural colors, textures, contrasts and combinations in order to craft the art you envision. They are extremely different, and we really wanted to offer both."

Abraham Jam has performed at the Parliament of the World's Religions in Toronto, Ontario, at the Michigan Festival of Sacred Music, at several universities and peace conferences, and at public concert halls such as Asheville, NC's Diana Wortham Theatre. A short documentary about the band is currently in production.

“At a point in history when divisions loom large, it is important that we not only stand in the way of actions that separate us, but also that we create those things that bring us together,” according to Jonas.

On the way, they are creating music that is complex, beautiful, joyful, honest, eclectic, and inspiring.
