Lawrence Dermer - Third House Rising

"A Jewish musical renaissance is bubbling and the sound is getting so loud..."

I got a nice email today pointing me to Lawrence Dermer's new album "Third House Rising." According to Dermer's website, he's "a BMI Award winning and Grammy nominated singer, songwriter, producer who is best known for his work with Gloria Estefan, Jennifer Lopez, Madonna, Cher, Lenny Kravitz and Barry Manilow." The new album, composed with is wife Robin and performed with his sons, is "a unique blend of Jewish Pop combining elements of R&B, Latin, Chassidic, Middle Eastern and soulful sounds with fresh contemporary lyrics."

The video below will give you an idea about the sound that Dermer's going for, but you need to listen to the sample tracks on his website or on his myspace page. This is great stuff. Check it out.
