Single tracks: $0.99 from CD Baby Todd Herzog's newest release (2011) is a powerful collection of 14 tracks based on the Friday night Shabbat liturgy. Following the order of the Shabbat evening service, the songs remind us of the essence of Shabbat: the concept of taking time each week to unplug, to breathe deeply, and to remember who we are.
This first children's recording from Todd Herzog includes 12 tracks, each representing a different Jewish value such as Kedushah (Holiness), Kavod (Respect, Honor), and G'milut Chasadim (Acts of Loving Kindness). The catchy melodies and enduring wisdom of Todd's lyrics bring these values to life for young children (preschool age and up), and serve as a reminder that we are all blessed every day, as long as we keep our eyes open to appreciate the world around us. Todd's soulful, spiritual, acoustic pop (think John Mayer, Jason Mraz, and Marc Cohn) speaks not just to children, but also to the adults in their lives who strive to model Jewish values for their children.
The second Jewish recording from singer/songwriter
Todd Herzog expands upon his unique style of acoustic, spiritual pop music, with songs meant to blur the line between the spiritual and the secular and "bridge the gap" between religion and spirituality. The music features Todd’s unique versions of traditional liturgy, as well as songs that capture the spirituality found in everyday moments. The songs also bridge other gaps, such as those between young and old, between people of differing ethnic and religious backgrounds, and between heaven and earth.
Todd Herzog is an artist who takes the raw material of life experiences and creates soulful, spiritual, acoustic pop music along the lines of
John Mayer, Jason Mraz, and
Marc Cohn. The music is not intended solely as entertainment, but also to promote healing and change in people’s lives. Todd's songs invite us to slow down and take a closer look at how the simple choices we make each day affect the shape of our journeys.
What I Wouldn't Give, the debut album from Todd Herzog, chronicles Todd's personal journey of working through the grief of losing his girlfriend Rachel to leukemia. The 10 songs deal with life and death, love and loss, healing and transcendence. Heartfelt lyrics, clever songcrafting, and rich, warm production make this CD a spiritual gift, a reminder that faith and hope are worth hanging onto.
