Since the release of his debut album over a decade and a half ago, singer and composer Yoel Dovid Goldstein has had a following of fans clamoring after him for new releases.
The last six years has seen Yoel Dovid releasing three singles and two videos of medleys. While in the studio recently with veteran producer and composer Yitzy Waldner, the two went from working on two singles to a full-fledged album. The new album, slated for release this November, has compositions from Yitzy Waldner, Eli Schachter and Yoel Dovid himself with arrangements by David Taub, Lipa Brach and Zelig Provalsky. The nine song album is the work of over two years in the studio.
One of the songs on the album is titled “V’chosveinu Besefer HaChayim,” and was composed by Eli Schachter. Yoel Dovid really connected to these words after hearing the demo. “These words are part of a special tefillah that we say Rosh Hashanah night before Maariv,” says Yoel Dovid. Bnei Yisroel are compared to Achos Ketana, a little sister. It’s a tefillah that talks about the closeness of Jewish people to Hashem and for Hashem to appeal to His mercy on his suffering “sister”. ”This message pulled at my heartstrings and I immediately bought the song.” This special song has a beautiful haunting arrangement by the talented Lipa Brach that really puts you in the mind frame of that very moment when we are uttering these holy words before Hashem Yisborach.
May we all have a year full of Gefen, with all our tefillos answered and experience the coming of the Geulah bekarov.
