NEW YORK (PRWEB) April 16, 2019
Rabbi and Cantor Steven Blane of Sim Shalom Online Synagogue has a brand new album coming. “I Walk Alone,” will be released on April 16, 2019. It’s a collection of songs that Blane wrote and produced. He played all the instruments, recorded, mixed and mastered everything.
Blane says, “It’s been cathartic. It’s the closest I’ve come to getting what I really have heard in my head. “I Walk Alone” is an album comprised of 60’s Rock & Roll, Jazz Story Songs" Read his first review here and access teasers to some of the songs.
The Huffington Post wrote, “Stylistically, Blane fits in the Americana category. But there’s more going on in his music than simply Americana. There’s a pop influence in there, along with a 1950’s rock vibe that gives his sound a unique signature. It’s much different from the usual run-of-the-mill stuff most bands turn out today."
As a young boy in Jersey City, his grandma stood him on a table at a Knights of Pythias Talent Show. Singing “Delilah,” Tom Jones style, in front of a supportive audience left a profound effect on Steven. Years later, when college was over, he plotted his escape to NYC where he currently resides with his wife and dog Ari.
Blane is also a Cantor, Founder and Dean of Jewish Spiritual Leaders' Institute and Rabbi of Sim Shalom Online Synagogue where he combines his love of Judaism and music.
