About Gedalya

Live Performance in New York City

Gedalya is a folk rock singer/songwriter based in New York. Exploring themes of faith, hardships, and growth, his music is reaching a growing audience around the globe, touching listener’s hearts in every corner of the world.

Gedalya’s soul searching songs immediately stood out from the crowd when he emerged in 2018 with his debut album ‘Son of Israel’. This album, simply done, Gedalya at the piano and vocals. Inspired in part by a personal journey, these songs address the state of the world with rare honesty and candor. As a result Gedalya began to attract fans from all walks of life.

While writing the songs that would become his next album, 'Man of Faith' Gedalya travelled the world, communicating with and learning from fans as he went. He began asking fans to share their diary entrees about his music. They were happy to oblige. In Miami a young woman wrote “Your songs are so easily relatable. They touch the soul.” Two newlyweds in Ohio added “Your melodies are as beautiful as your voice!” The growing bond between artist and listener inspired Gedalya. He poured his entire soul into his next album ‘Man of Faith’. Orchestral strings add a dramatic flair to ‘The Book of the Devine’, while title track ‘Man of Faith’ is propelled forward by an uplifting jazz infused drumbeat. Which was embraced with open arms by his ever expanding fanbase.

True to form, Gedalya quickly started working on new music. Mere months after his previous album, he released the EP ‘Pulling Strings’. These five songs feature the moving piano and heartfelt lyrics fans have come to expect, while adding new elements to the mix. 

Gedalya continues to perform regularly in traditional venues, house concerts, and on New York City streets and subway platforms. His albums are available on all streaming services. All you have to do is close your eyes and connect to Gedalya’s soulful music.

    I've known Gedalya for the past 5 years and he has been a source of wisdom, comfort and inspiration through this time. I love the latest EP, Pulling Strings. I think it does an exceptional job for bridging the spiritual and folk world to our current time while staying true to the sources. The lyrics are deep and profound and the music is very uplifting. I can't wait to see Gedalya continue to thrive and get the exposure that he deserves in the upcoming year!

    I've known Gedalya since the 1990s and his skill with speaking and singing words of love and faith have certainly brought new meaning to the words "a wandering minstrel". If I had to pick just one song to review it would have to be the song he wrote for his daughter. I cannot reveal her name or the song title but if you ask Gedalya to sing it for you it will definitely bring teardrops to your eyes and a smile to your face. This man has gravitas mixed with humor. You can't go wrong with any song in his catalog. Listen to the amazingly frank, "I Think I'm Thinking Too Much" if you want a taste of an oldie but a goodie!

How to Host a Home Concert 

(adapted from Justin Roth at www.JustinRoth.com) 

WHAT IS A HOME CONCERT? 

A home concert is literally a concert in a living room (or a basement, or a backyard). They’re happening more and more frequently all across the country as artists find that 25 to 50 people can fit into a living room quite comfortably.  It’s a great format where both audience and artist alike get to experience an intimate concert in a ‘listening room’ setting that is comfortable for all. This is not a party with background music. It is a sit down concert in your home. There is no smoke, low or no amounts of alcohol to compete with, little advertising necessary and ticket prices can be whatever the artist and presenter agree upon (usually a $15-20 suggested donation per person). The main things required from you are 1) having the space to host it, and 2) inviting your friends, neighbors, co-workers, family, etc. I love doing this kind of show and they can either be just a concert, or you may choose to provide appetizers and drinks, or do a potluck. The options are really wide open depending upon how you’d like to host it.
