What New Music is Coming?

Shua Kessin – Lo Lahityayeish – Produced by Ozer Babad. Coming in September.

Benny Friedman – Benny’s CD has been in the works for quite a while now, they had to take some time off due to Benny’s recent wedding but the CD should be finishing up very soon. (I’m told it’s “pretty much” done.)

Shloime Gertner 2 – Yossi Tyberg, Yossi Green, Gershy Moskowitz and Shloime Gertner equal Jewish music gold. This CD is in the production stages and word on the street says it should be in stores sometime between October and December.

YBC LIVE 3 – The goal for this album is to be in stores in time for Chanukah

Shades of Green II – Yossi Green’s Much Anticipated sequel to Shades of Green is now in production! As you know the first SOG had 24 songs presented in 12 different styles which besides expressing music in a new and very exciting way, was also a tremendous value. Being that all the songs were composed by Yossi Green, the choices of songs on the CD were breathtaking!

Mendy Wedyger – Mendy Werdyger is working on an all new album, featuring songs from some of today’s hottest composers! No release date set.

With the HUGE success of Lev Tahor 4 they will once again astound and thrill audiences with an all original all new MUSIC album. The album should be available at the end of next summer.

Miami Boys Choir- Yerachmil would not confirm if he started on his new album yet but he seemed to imply it. In his own words “it’s too early to give any details and let’s not let any of our any cats out of the bag just yet”.

Yosef Chaim Shwekey 2 – Yosef told us a second album is planned and he might be starting to work on it after Sukkos.

Also he wants to let people know he is looking for 4 more songs for the album and anyone who has ideas for songs should e-mail him at

Yoni Zigelbaum – Yoni told us he is at the begging stages of his debut album and expects it to be a long process. He already has a few songs and is working on collecting many more. He said we probably wont see an album for about two years down the road.

Kol Noar Boys Choir 2 – Mo Kiss and Bentzi are writing and formulating ideas for a follow up album, also working on the concept of the album, where they want to go with it.

AKA Pella 4 CD Eichler and Mo are back at in a new acapella album. As Moe told us we can expect a lot of surprises with this album with great new songs (although it will follow previous albums having many adaption’s from secular music). We are also told the album will host some interesting guests. The hope is this album will be ready by Pesach this year in time for the sefira season.

Moe Kiss – Mo is back in the studio and working on two albums of his own. The first one which he told us should be out by the summer is gona be a “new idea” to Jewsh music. No further comment on what that new idea is. He told us he is also working on a second album which is really a lot more secular in nature. Of course it will still be Jewish but it will incorporate a lot new sounds that are more his style. No word when this second album might be ready. Those who saw the youtube clip of him with Lipa singing anovim ( that gives you an idea of what his style is like.

Dovid Gabay 3 After a summer filled with meetings with many great Jewish Music composers, Dovid has almsot finished collecting all the songs. Next they will start the recording process and hope within the next year to have a release.
