"In a Big City" - Album Release (Aug 25th, 2020)
About the project:
I moved to the U.S. from Israel in 2011, completely changing my professional career and life course. For the past nine years living in New York and Los Angeles, I had a privilege to perform with many great artists and to compose/arrange music for commercial projects such as films, TV, Broadway shows etc... As much as it feels very fulfilling contributing your art and craft to other people's visions,
it is important to every artist to develop their own voice. I've been constantly working on my own music throughout the years and now’s the time to release my first jazz album as a bandleader!
The music in this album includes nine original compositions written at different periods and reflects my personal journey for the past nine years living in NY and LA. I’m sure it will speak to others, as we are all constantly moving in our lives, either physically or emotionally, changing places, phases of life and life's perspectives… This recording features some of the great LA jazz musicians and a special guest nine-time Grammy Award nominee incredible jazz vocalist Tierney Sutton!
Recording an album is a big challenge for an independent artist, both artistically and financially. Especially nowadays, as we are all going through difficult times due to the global COVID-19 pandemic, many musicians including myself have lost our sources of revenue from public performances, recording sessions, live shows and concerts. It is very important for us to stay engaged with our audiences and to continue creating a valuable content. The cost of such a project comes to around $8,500 which goes towards renting a recording studio, paying to musicians and engineers, mixing, mastering, CD manufacturing, publicity and distribution. As long as I’ve been working hard to take care of the artistic part (developing musical ideas, composing, arranging, finding the right musicians, rehearsing, recording, mixing and mastering the music), this project still needs financial help to cover the expenses involved in the process. Every little will help and I will very appreciate your support! By contributing to this project, you are not only helping to bring more positivity and love to the world through the art, but you will also receive a FREE SIGNED COPY of the album (please fill out your details here) as my thank you!
