I have tremendous thanks and gratitude to G-d for creating me, sustaining me and bestowing upon me a continuous flow of inspiration. May He continue to show me, my family, friends, and the entire world only kindness and may we all merit to see His glory fully recognized on Earth, soon in our times.
I'd also like to thank my wife and children for all of their support and enthusiasm towards my music. Special thanks to Craig Levy at Little Pioneer studios in NYC for producing and arranging this album.
Every time I write a song, I have no idea how it happened. I have an idea which develops and changes. I start with a chord, and it becomes another chord. The melody also finds its own pathway. One thing I do know is that nothing comes out until it's ready! What makes it ready? That I also don't know.
In the past, if you would have asked me why I write, I would have said that I do it because I need to. I write for myself, and my only objective is to say what I feel and express my thoughts and ideas. Only after I've done that does the desire to share rise up from within. But this album was different. This time around when I sat down to write I first thought about some of the good things that I wanted to share. This is the first time that I consciously began from that point.
As you listen through the songs, I hope you will listen with an open mind and an open heart and that you will find that place within yourself that connects with some of the messages you're hearing.
Wishing you only good things, Gedalya
