ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
A gentle organ, swirling and building. Crisp guitar, added on in layers. And finally a gentle poet voice calls out "L'David Mizmor." In his debut album, Jewish indie-pop musician Ben Epstein has done something rather magical. He's taken Tehillim (Psalms) written millennia ago by David Ha-Melech (King Davd) and, once again, given them life as intensely personal and intimate songs. Because this is how they started, right? David, warrior and king, conflicted and embattled, pouring out his fear, hope, love and longing in the best way he knew...song. Epstein's flawlessly crafted pop flows effortlessly, one memorable melody tumbling out after another. This is an album to be sung along with, jumped up and down with, and, on a clear starry night like tonight, cried along with. In releasing this album, Epstein has joined the ranks of Orthodox Jewish musicians like Matisyahu, Y-Love, Blue Fringe, and Stereo Sinai, who are both devout in practice and able to translate their religious experience into music that is approachable and meaningful to a wide audience. Seriously folks. This is a fantastic album that's been in heavy rotation lately. I have every expectation that given some time and promotion, that Epstein will take the Orthodox pop world by storm in the same way that Blue Fringe did. I have every hope that the wider Jewish community embraces him, too. This is some seriously good music. Here are some clips of a couple of my favorite tracks, and you can hop over to CD Baby to hear the rest.

Esther

beautiful
I have listened to this CD many times since I bought it and I can only say it's beautiful. It's gentle, sung from the heart with sincerity, calming but with character. Most slow, some faster beat which I like too. I find Monday really soul-stirring and reminds me of the beauty of Jerusalem and the longing for it. The CD really brings out the beauty of the words and enhances them. Thank you for this gift, Ben, I hope many more people have the chance to listen to and be moved by these songs.
PS. There's a good interview on Israel National News with Ben about this CD which is worth listening to.

Soulful and passionate Singer - King David's Psalms Like You've Never Heard Them
This album is beautiful. The artist, Ben Epstein, a rabbi and psychologist, did something very novel here. He took the original Hebrew words from the Psalms used as the "Song of the Day" in Jewish prayer books, and turned them into soulfull and modern songs that would make King David proud. Some songs are slow and rythmic while a few have a bit more range. If you like meditative music with a nice electric guitar and precussion sound, you will not regret getting this album. Two thumbs up.
