ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Larry Fogel and Mindy Burns are a popular part of the American folk music scene in Israel. Both Floridian born, they immigrated to Israel with their families in their teenage years.

During his mandatory military service in the late seventies Larry was a self-appointed "one man band" with a guitar always ready for social entertainment. After his army duty, Larry began performing in clubs in Tel Aviv doing songs by Simon & Garfunkel, Don McLean, James Taylor, Bob Dylan, Jim Croce, Dan Fogelberg, Gordon Lightfoot, Crosby Stills Nash & Young and more. Afterwards, Larry dropped performing for many years to build a management career and to raise a family. In 2003, he returned to the music scene, and started performing at Folk Clubs around the country, where American folk music is played and sung, including performing regularly in the prestigious "Jacob's Ladder" annual folk music festival.

As a teenager Mindy was a lead singer in a Jewish music group that performed all over the USA and Canada. Throughout her adult years singing remained her love and she performed at parties and functions of friends and colleagues, doing songs by Simon and Garfunkel, Carole King, Bread, Harry Chapin, Barbra Streisand, and more.

Mindy and Larry met at the beginning of 2006 and happily combined their musical and song-writing talents to create original compositions in a folk rock style uniquely theirs. From the fun loving "Let's Grow Young Together", where you just can't help but smile and tap your feet, the gorgeous acoustic guitar solos and heartfelt lyrics of "Words, Words, Words", the haunting "Preacher", the lovely Brazilian sound of "Our Love Will Burn", the rambunctious “Fan Song”, to the peaceful walk through nature of "Waterfalls of Diamonds", "Two Hearts One Beat" is a journey of the heart and soul not to be missed.

For Larry Fogel and Mindy Burns it was "love at first listen" - you are sure to feel the same upon hearing this heart warming debut album!


CD Review of Larry & Mindy's "Two Hearts, One Beat"
By Harold Jacobs, "Folk Notes"

Barreling straight through Miami and Ft. Lauderdale from where Larry Fogel and Mindy Burns hail, I-95 also known as Interstate Highway 95, is the same airport road that launched them both onto an Israeli “collision course” trajectory whose impact blossomed into a rainbow of love and music. Upon first listen to this refreshingly unique CD “Two Hearts One Beat” you will easily recognize a rare duality of intensity and softness that projects from this couple’s lives and music; it’s indeed a passionate gift to the listener and about 98% schmaltz-free too. “Two Hearts, One Beat” makes you feel that it’s Valentine’s Day on every listen except for a song called “Preacher” that has about four times more rage and retribution than Carly Simon’s “You’re So Vain”. It’s so painful that I (an incorrigible softie) often skip the track just to stay upbeat, but it is such an intense indictment of a relationship gone wrong that is only fully recognized through the eyes of the healing process of today’s subsequent rehabilitative true love. On those other days when I’m in combat mode, “Preacher” will evoke an encouraging and cathartic “yo girl”!

There is something so naturally tight, smooth and subtle about the instrumentation (all arranged and played by Larry) and the vocal harmonies that are sometimes multiple overdubs reminiscent of my all-time favorites: Marvin Gaye and CSN&Y. The CD opens with driving good CSN&Y-type harmonies in “You Can Come to Me” which is a song of love and support even when things are bad. Larry and Mindy also have a knack for taking commonplace environmental sounds like their dog howling or the ceiling fan clicking and incorporating them into their music in such a unique manner. Truthfully I like to listen to music at great volume and I wasn’t prepared for the sudden canine howl in “The Fan Song” - it sure got my adrenaline pumped. What best expresses what is going on here is a joyous duet “Let’s Grow Young Together” that goes: “When I met you, couldn’t forget you, yeah you set my heart on fire.”

The whole album was recorded in Larry and Mindy’s idyllic home studio named “Heaven” and the song “I Want Heaven to Be Perfect” invites us for a guided peek into their personal attic living/work space. The great keyboard-based arrangement is so exhilarating that during the instrumental solo I could only dream of joining-in on harmonica. The good news is that once you’re hooked on this CD, you won’t have to wait too long because Larry and Mindy are already working on their next album, and if you still can’t wait, I warmly recommend you catch their next live performance of “Two Hearts, One Beat” somewhere at a folk venue near you.

I guarantee that their music will put a smile on your face and will warm your hearts.

A great first album, I can't wait for their next collaboration.
This is an album that we have all been waiting for. Ever since Larry Fogel hit the Israeli folk scene, we have been a richer community. Initially winning over the crowds with covers from the 60's and 70's, Larry started sharing a part of himself through the songs that he wrote.

After performing with a number of partners, Larry hit the jackpot with Mindy Burns. They play off of each either as if they were playing together all of their lives.

With Mindy's strong vocal's and talents as a lyricist this a great listen.

Love is the inspiring drug, this CD - a cool summer breeze
Two Hearts One Beat – Larry Fogel and Mindy Burns.


What’s more wonderful than two people who meet, fall in love and start making music together?
Larry Fogel – an extremely talented singer, guitarist and songwriter – hear his voice and melt – and Mindy with her love for music and special velvety shaded voice, who started to write lyrics with Larry’s encouragement.
A union of love and music in which two people inspire one another and this union presents us with a superb CD which is no doubt the first of many more to come.
In this CD there’s lightness, romance (I just love “Our Love Will Burn”!), humor, but also a sad, angry and powerful song which refers to a painful past experience – “Preacher”. After hearing this song, it’s comforting to listen to “Words, Words, Words” and discover that love and healing have come to stay, a promise of hope to those who still await it.


I liked the songs very much - the melodies are lovely and catchy and Larry embellished them with great musical and vocal arrangements. The two voices meld so smoothly and pleasantly and fill the listener with ease and contentment.


A perfect CD for summer-time – light, easy going , flowing pleasantly like a lovely evening breeze – just like the last song – “Waterfalls of Diamonds” – says :

“Breathe in the morning, with a cup of coffee.
Smell the buds of the flowers, sucked by bees.
Taste the sweetness of life all around you…”

…and listen to Larry and Mindy’s sweet melodies.

Mindy and Larry – may you keep inspiring each other for many more songs and years to come .

Each song a gem
Two Hearts, One Beat review

Larry and Mindy have created a beautiful album, in which every song is a polished gem. In some songs I hear the influence of some of the best music of my youth (Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young come to mind) while in the song Our Love Will Burn there is even a hint of Jobim. But musical influences aside, these songs are completely, brilliantly unique. Larry and Mindy are each gifted but together make magic. This is an album that I listen to over and over again, each time enjoying it like the first time, while still discovering new things.
