Voice Over Success!

23 06 2021

At some point last year, I decided that I needed a better home studio situation.

I repurposed some space in the apartment to create and sound treat a booth and set up equipment for editing and such.

It’s been a terrific addition! I’ve used it to record songs for videos, read stories for The Kaleidocast (a podcast by the Brooklyn Speculative Fiction Writers Group), take further training in Voice Over work and audition for industrial work.

The big news this week: I’m making my animation voiceover debut this weekend in a segment on Pause with Sam Jay. The segment, although short, was fun to shoot. I did all the vocal work in my new home studio!

The segment is in the episode N.A.H.S.O.N., which premieres Friday night on HBOMax. It was great to use this modern technology to do scene work with actors and get direction from the creators of the show, all while separated by great distances.

I’m so glad to expand my voice over work into the world of animation, and particularly thankful for Paul Liberti for being such a terrific coach and inspiration!


The setup also came in handy last month when I dove into an online workshop on songwriting and production. The end result of that workshop is that I have two new original songs hitting the streaming services and digital market places this summer. The first one “Starting Over” comes out on my birthday — July 25! The second one should be available the week after that.

“Starting Over” is available in the iTunes Store for preorder now. Click the image below to go there! It will be available for purchase on all the digital music sites, and for streaming on Spotify, Apple Music, Tidal and Deezer!

Two Success Stories!

21 06 2021
I want to tell you that early in the year our annual Soul to Soul concert was held virtually, and it was a smashing success!

Instead of selling 250 seats to the theater at the Museum of Jewish Heritage, we had it streamed in more than 2,500 households!

The show went over so well that it was replayed during a virtual international Yiddish Festival hosted by the State Jewish Theater in Bucharest, Romania!

Congratulations to all my friends at the National Yiddish Theatre Folksbiene who puts on this show and has formed a little family in the process!

I also was so thrilled to take part in a project by JW’s Inspirational Singers!

We filmed and recorded an arrangement of the song “Stand Up”, which was released online back in January. This led to the group being asked to come to Los Angeles and audition for America’s Got Talent!

I didn’t go along on the trip (whew! I was busy in May!) but the whole group will be featured, and I hope you will all cheer them on during this week’s episode on Tuesday, June 22 on NBC! And check out the video we shot right here:





Lafayette Salon Series!

27 05 2021

The folks at the Lafayette Salon Series recently cast me in one of their legendary play readings!

The group has been doing readings of plays and screenplays for several years — this is season 13! — and when the pandemic made it impossible to gather at a table and play together the masterminds at LSS pushed the regular events onto the virtual space.

So in May I had the pleasure of joining Kevin Bernard, Mac Brydon, Jane Cortney, and Stewart Walker in a Zoom reading of The Killer, Eugene Ionesco’s 1958 play, which is the first of the Berenger plays. And I got to play Berenger! What a treat that was! 

The other Berenger plays are Rhinocéros, Exit the King, and A Stroll in the Air. In The Killer, Berenger is an honest man who discovers a radiant city full of light and progress with an undercurrent of evil that eventually causes him to wonder about the futility of fighting evil and the purpose of goodness. I know, light stuff! But its a fascinating absurdist play, and was challenging and thrilling all at once!
