ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Reborn as Bees" (1999) - Created out of family tragedy, this is an eloquently dark and sometimes angry record. Although deeply personal, this searing album is universal in its hard-driving and melodic psychological study of loss, unfulfilled love, and the struggle to find second chances. Backed up by a full band, Kaplan opens the album quietly and gently with cautious hope in his voice: "I know the end is near but so is the beginning". He sings about unanswered prayers in "Deaf Ears", of a numb rebounding in "No Matter What", and with paranoid and helpless rage in "Many Times Over" and "Great Disguise". "Reborn as Bees" is a true concept album- a profound, gallant, and mystical work.

REVIEWS of REBORN AS BEES:

"Owing a hats off to Michael Stipe, Paul Simon, and Elliott Smith, Kaplan presents a collection of tunes that reeled this listener in without a struggle. Melody, lyrics, arrangement, production... it's all here... The lyrics stand on their own as poetry, unique and compelling in its imagery... this guy's no lightweight."
-THE INSIDE CONNECTION / Long Island, New York

"Kaplan originals... resound with a thought-provoking consciousness."
-THE ISLAND VOICE / Long Island, New York
