has enjoyed entertaining
an expansive variety of audiences while continuing to elude definition for
ten years. Moshe Mann, Loren Shevitz, Chuck Finkelstein and Steve Singer
deliver an eclectic, energetic mix of Jewish and secular music and styles
- all in dynamic harmony. For ten years, this award-winning "no instruments
allowed" ensemble has been bringing their unique brand of Jewish music to
communities throughout the US and Canada. LISTEN UP! is celebrating the
release of their third recording, "Jewphoria" - a collection of popular
traditional Jewish songs flipped on their heads with humor, warmth, and
vocal pyrotechnics. "Jewphoria" has been nominated in the "best religious
album" category for the Contemporary A Cappella Recording Awards (CARA),
an international contest whose past winners include vocal groups such as
the Nylons, Rockapella, and Take 6. LISTEN UP! is the first Jewish-music
vocal ensemble in the history of the CARAs to be nominated in this category.
The Chicago Tribune writes, "What comes across in every moment of their
performance is an adoration for singing -- turning melodies and harmonies
on their heads to come up with something unique and full of freshness and
appeal. When redefining musical rules, it helps to be good -- and these
four are very good, lacking nothing in imagination and the ability to sell
their vision of a song."
