Album Notes
evën sh'siyah blends original music with lyrics taken from an array of classic Jewish texts as well as their own English lyrics. The band's influences are eclectic, and include folk, rock, Mid-Eastern, and jazz. They have integrated these genres creating their own cohesive and unique musical soundscape in the world of Jewish music. The band has been playing together for over ten years and released three CDs, "...through your gates, Jerusalem", "The Way Jews Rock", and "Wake Up". Their songs have enjoyed radio airplay here in the U.S., as well as in Israel and Europe.

evën sh'siyah is composed of seven musicians from Chicago: Elisha Prero (guitar), David Margulis (bass), Ely Cooper (guitar), Mitch Jacoby (guitar), Matt Kanter (drums), Zev Goldberg (percussion), and Mark Freedman (keyboards).

evën sh'siyah is Hebrew for "foundation stone." According to Jewish tradition, the original element of all Creation was this primordial stone, from which the entire world came into existence.

Love this band and this CD
I love this band as I was looking for Jewish Rock music and they rocked me alright. I listen to it every day and enjoy it more and more. I wish they would ncome to Baltimore so I could see them live.
