Hobbies are important! Singing is one of my favorite ways to create and collaborate. Here are a few projects I’ve been working recently.

I set out to record one song in the studio to see how I liked it, but I ended up falling in love with the whole creative process of recording. This is my first album, On the Other Side. Each song relates to vulnerability, working through fear, claiming your voice, and coming out stronger on the other side.

I recorded this song for a dear friend whose father passed away the previous year. He was a fisherman from the Azores, and the cover shows a picture of his boat. The original song has a Spanish verse, then we added in a little Portuguese to honor the family’s native language.

I sing in a trio called The Mamalehs with my friends, Shana Cohen and Amy Robertson. We recorded this song for Rosh Hashanah 2020, and I love how our voices weave together. We hope it brings you a sense of much needed peace and calm.

Emet is a cover of an original song by Rabbi Josh Warshawsky about Truth. We recorded this for High Holidays 2021. Will Robertson wrote and produced this arrangement for us that includes the Jeffers family saxophone quartet!

The Mamalehs love this beautiful song by Rabbi Micah Shapiro about returning to yourself. We were inspired to create our own version in early 2021 through a combination of improvisation and experimentation in the studio.

We’ve sung this song for years, and we finally recorded and released it officially in 2021. I love how our voices weave together in these beautiful melodies by Rick Calvert. You’ll hear Will Robertson on guitar, who also produced this song for us.

We recorded this song in our respective homes in Summer 2020. You’ll hear Shana’s beautiful voice as the lead. We hope this song can serve as an uplifting message to anyone feeling trapped or stuck.

I am a proud alto in the chorus of my synagogue, Congregation Bet Haverim. We recorded this song over the summer of 2020, all from our own homes. I am so proud of our work together on this song.

We started recording our new album in the fall of 2019, and this was one of the last songs we recorded before Covid hit. I think this is one of the most beautiful songs we’ve done, and I hope you enjoy it too.

I love this whole album, released by Gayanne Geurin. I was so excited to get to sing on this song written about a beautiful tree in our friends’ yard. This song is brimming with joyous energy, including the delighted coos of Gayanne’s grand babies.

This song has become a favorite among my synagogue chorus friends, and I’m honored to sing some fun harmonies here. Will recorded this song shortly after Covid hit, and it’s a great reminder to keep looking around us to find the beauty in the world.
