New Canadian global roots/ 'world,' Czech and Yiddish music. Described by some as 'folk art jazz.' Shaped by the rich, intercultural Toronto soundscapes.
“Breathtakingly beautiful” (Moors Magazine, The Netherlands, MASARYK review)
...a "haunting set of musical gems" (The Bangkok Post, THIEVES of DREAMS review)
“…upliftingly beautiful music... prodigiously-gifted Canadian musician ... has emerged as one of the most fascinating and compelling composers (Raul da Gama, World Music Report, MASARYK review)
I am so grateful. Thieves of Dreams: at #11 on World Music Charts Europe for September, 2022! Even hit #1 on TWMC - World Music Charts in August! And #6 in Canada (thex.ca, September 22, 2022). I am thrilled that my latest project is received so well. 40+ radio stations around the world, multiple podcast features, rave press reviews ... I never dreamt my grandma's Terezin poems could garner such interest! See a complete list, preview tracks and read about it here. Or, learn about it in this brief EPK video by Daniel Rosenberg. Watch the videos on the right, both songs from Thieves; there are more videos of Thieves' songs here.
