Lisa Jane Lipkin, an American singer songwriter, has created a new collection of Jewish prayers and chants based on traditional texts but performed with her own compositions. These prayers represent a spiritual journey for Lipkin, with Hebrew and English texts. Lipkin is a New York based musician who has recorded, arranged and produced for other artists including Sandi Kimmel, Christine Pepe and Neal Bomberg. Her first CD was Raise the Honey. Lisa has said “With the thirst of a mystic I traversed the world of spiritual teachings only to discover that all the wonders I learned out there were also in here in Jewish prayer and thought.” Lisa has performed at NYC Mamapalooza, the Towne Crier, and the Tupelo Music Hall.
