Lenny Solomon is one of the more colorful personalities in religious music. He has an impressive and full musical resume, as the lead songwriter and co-partner of the band Kesher and the founder and lead singer of Shlock Rock, which he still performs with even today.
He has sung with and accompanied major Jewish singers including MBD, Avraham Fried, and even R’ Shlomo Carlebach. He has thirty nine albums, five hundred and twenty songs, and over two thousand concerts all over the world under his belt.
The project Shira Yeteira is the 8th Hebrew language album for Lenny. While many albums of Shabbos songs are taken from inspiration during Shabbos meals, the songs in this album were all inspired during the half hour before Shabbos at Lenny’s piano when the Neshama Yeteira was just arriving. Lenny felt that the Shira Yetaira also arrived.
This album is full of duets, and it was arranged and produced by Jeff Horvitch.
Yifkod is the first single from the project performed by singer Moshe Bell.
Bell is 24 years old, but already at a young age he was singing together with major singers Yaakov Shwekey and Avraham Fried while a part of the children’s choir “Shira Chadasha“. He was a part of Project X 2 from Lipa Schmeltzer as one of the soloists, and previously released two albums together with his brother Shimon under the alias Sheves Achim, as well as featured as a guest on Ari Goldwag and Simcha Leiner‘s latest albums.
