Album Notes
Mendel Singer used to write country music and pitch tunes on Music Row in Nashville, TN. After a long detour to do medical research, he is back with original, spiritually motivated music. Some of it distinctly Jewish, most of it the universal experiences of a person struggling to grow and find his own unique spiritual voice.
Kosher Symbol Blues, originally released as a 5-song EP, is now being re-released as a full-length 12 song CD. The powerful English lyrics and strong melodies are front and center, backed by a simple production with only a few instruments. No drum tracks or synthesizers here. From tears to laughter, from introspection to observation, this album is an emotional and intellectual experience with a touch of humor.

"Mendel Singer's unique musical approach to Jewish themes reflects his formidable songwriting skills and incorporates his passion for Jewish life and observance. This is not the music you learned in Hebrew school or Sunday school, it is a refreshing contemporary interpretation of Jewish themes presented with a modern, Nashville-influenced sound." Shawn Fink, Shalom America!

“Mendel Singer’s music is very inspirational and well written. I enjoyed the folk-country inflection in the music. Kosher Symbol Blues is a real classic, very funny lyrics with a great tune.”
Leslie Lutsky, host of Jewish Digest, Radio Centre-Ville, Montreal

“Kosher Symbol Blues is a hoot and his song ‘The Bible’ is lovely. Singer's guitar playing is also quite good and carries his voice well.”
Jack Zaientz, Teruah Jewish Music

When not playing or writing music, Mendel Singer is an Associate Professor of Public Health at the Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine in Cleveland, Ohio. He is also the founding director of the Jewish Community Health Initiative.
