ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Shelter came about after my father died. While saying Kaddish every day, I found myself drawn to certain passages in the Morning service. One day, I came home and the title song came out when I sat down at the piano. Over the next few months, I wrote music for many more prayers and texts. All of the songs are a direct result of saying Kaddish for my Dad, going to synagogue twice a day for a year.

I have been singing and playing the paino since I was a kid, but this is my first attempt at making an album. At the age of 57, I'm pretty old to start making an album, but these songs led me to try and document this time in my life. Recording the eleven songs on Shelter has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. It's never too late.

My musical heroes are James Taylor, Elton John, Billy Joel and David Wilcox. I hope that you can hear their influence on the songs of Shelter. All of the songs were written on piano, and recorded with amazing studio musicians during the summer of 2019 at Wellspring Sound in Acton, Massachusetts. Eric Kilburn and Sue Horowitz produced Shelter and the music has their imprint.
