Pray for the Peace
What do you get when you take three established Jewish Contemporary hit makers, spirited Jewish songcrafters, and great friends? You get Sababa! ('cool,' in Israeli/Arabic vernacular.) Steve Brodsky (Denver) Scott Leader (Phoenix) and Robbi Sherwin (Austin) have combined their amazing songwriting, harmonizing and production abilities to create "Pray for the Peace," 12 dynamic, spiritual, rockin' songs that will fast become an integral part of the religious music scene. Stellar production and tight harmonies are the hallmarks of Sababa's! Accessible, energetic and contemplative melodies on this CD. Steve Brodsky, known as "the Jewish James Taylor," and founder of the acclaimed Jewish band, "Mah Tovu" sings lead on many of the cuts. Scott Leader, fast becoming one of the best-loved writers and producers of music in this genre, adds his amazing musicality, lead vocals, harmony, and production ability. Robbi Sherwin's non-stop energy, songwriting ability and special gift of finding that unusual harmony rounds out this trio that many are already calling a "Jewish Supergroup." "Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem" is the title cut, based on Psalm 122 and written during the war with Hezbollah in the summer of 2006. An anthem that crosses all religious and ethnic boundaries, it is already becoming a classic. The album contains many songs of peace, new takes on traditional prayer and text, and touching themes that are universal. You will enjoy listening - and singing along - over and over again. Here's what they are saying: "Individually, Steve, Scott & Robbi have helped define the landscape of Jewish music ... together, the sky's the limit! - Jon Nelson, Yom Hadash and Nelsongs "Scott, Robbi & Steve are a force with which to be reckoned!"
