Representing my hometown of St. Louis, MO my close friend and mentor Rick Recht and I sit down to talk about his journey from secular musician to Jewish music and the new version of his hit song Halleluyah, this time incorporating the words of Psalm 150.
As always, you can listen to all of the compositions from this season on the Jewish Songwriter Playlist on YouTube and Spotify.
