We here at JMR love talking about Jewish Music, we love talking about Jewish Music singers also! These days there is so much amazing talent out there, it could be hard to navigate through the crowded field. We will now be starting a series of short profiles of upcoming singers. We’re not talking about the known singers with debut albums “coming soon”, we’re talking about the guys you probably haven’t even heard of yet.
Our first look is at Eli Marcus. Eli is from Los Angeles, California, This guy has really started to make some waves. Eli is one of the talented Marcus Brothers (of 8th Day fame) and has been working hard on the wedding scene. (Including singing with his Uncle Avraham Fried at Benny Friedman’s recent wedding.)
Eli’s got a great voice, I’ve heard him live a couple times and I look forward to watching his career grow and maybe even one day have a CD. There aren’t any plans as of yet for a CD but Eli is already going to be on one anticipated upcoming release.
Eli did some background choir work for at least two songs on the long awaited Benny Friedman CD. Here is a picture of Benny and Eli in the studio.
Here is a picture of Eli singing with Benny Friedman and Bentzy Marcus at a recent wedding in Crown Heights.
Here are some videos.
Eli, we at the Jewish Music Report wish you luck and look forward to hearing more!
