Thats right, people don't need to fit into neat boxes and music shouldn't. Reb Michael's progressive sounds and soulful vocals will meet you where you are at and take you to the place you want to be. Reb. Michael is a true renaissance man, both an educator and an artist. Written over the course of a decade, the sounds on his debut album "Ana Hashem" are as varied as the experiences they reflect.
Michael, who composed and arranged all 12 songs on the album has been working in the Jewish music scene for over a decade. He is excited to finally release this album, which will be available in stores everywhere, and distributed by Aderet Music. The album will also be available online at MostlyMusic.com.
His album is the best
Michael performed at our Shabbos Project Havdalah Concert this weekend and quickly won over the crowd, starting with his soulful recitation of tehillim and ending with a crazy dancing kumzitz. Cleveland loved him! He and his band were beyond impressive! But not run of the mill -- Michael writes and sings music that is truly musical. He has breadth and talent. Here's why he's great: Michael's album is fresh and modern, with terrific instrumentals representing various musical genres. A pleasure to listen to each song -- and each one surprises you with it's ingenuity. Michael has a unique voice that is soulful, gentle, nuanced and inspiring, yet strong and varied at the same time. This album is a pleasure to listen to and one that offers so many styles of music. Some super fantastic and brilliant songs are: Lecha, Od Yishoma, Shema, Modeh Ani, and Ana Hashem. You will listen to these over and over again. Many blessings for continued hatzlacha!
This is a truly wonderful album. It is fresh, honest and emotional. Each song tells its own story while drawing the listener in with its lyrics and passion. The quality of production is top-notch. And Michael Nadatas voice is special!! Bottom line is that this album is awesome!
This is a CD that every person should purchase and take the time to listen to! It's a new way to appreciate some Jewish classics, learn a few you may have never heard before and will keep you wanting more. You can hear the love and emotion through the music. Michael Nadata is a very talented musician who can bring together a love of music and Judaism just by playing a few notes on the piano. Thanks for sharing your talent and music with us, Michael!! Can't wait to hear what you come up with next!
We just purchased this CD and are so excited to listen to it! The clips we have heard are simply gorgeous and we cannot wait to play the CD around the house and to enjoy it as a family! Beautiful album made by a very special person!!!
