Josh Goldberg, a Jewish musician and Cantorial student at the Academy for Jewish Religion, CA, has launched an album of Jewish and inspirational music titled Anchors and Balloons.
This record features lush arrangements, soaring vocals, inspirational liturgy, and heartfelt personal narratives. Goldberg hopes that this combination of Jewish and secular songs will open up the audience for Jewish worship music to a wider pool than would normally be interested in this type of music.
“Watching Josh blossom and grow as a spiritual leader has been one of the joys of my Rabbinate. In song, he’s found his own language for the Jewish commitment that has always been part of his and his family’s path,” says Rabbi David Stern, former president of the Central Conference of American Rabbis, and Senior Rabbi of Temple Emanu-El in Dallas, TX. “His music is a window into his soul, providing an opening invitation to ours. What a blessing to the Jewish community that his vision and gifts continue to gain even greater reach, finding even greater depth.”
Anchors and Balloons was released on Friday, April 24 on Goldberg’s website, as well as all major online streaming platforms including Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music, etc. For more information on the artist and other media materials, visit www.joshgoldbergmusic.com.
