Featuring Gedalya’s soulful music


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 the 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 traveled 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 fan base.

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.
