Embracing styles from hard rock grunge to sensually melodic ballads, Heedoosh is a trailblazing fusion of a brooding, mysterious sound with lyrics that convey both the longing for, and imminence of, redemption.
As its name implies, the music of this new band is something of a revelation. The brainchild of two Israeli Yemenite brothers, Yahav and Yaniv Tsaidi, Heedoosh performs deeply personal, spiritual Jewish rock music that pulls no punches.
The songs are of breathtaking beauty and complexity, rooted in sacred text and combined with contemporary verses gilded with a true rock edge influenced by Stone Temple Pilots, Radiohead, Coldplay and Oasis- a mix of hard rock and brit-pop with Hebrew lyrics and Jewish themes. The songs hold fast to their rock roots and their Jewish sources without compromising any integrity on either front.
The soul-searching themes of thier poignant songs are not afraid to address the foundations of faith nor express their longing for redemption. In a swirling vortex of a world filled with confusion, Heedoosh is a musical vidui, a lyrical confession that reaches out to the unknown for answers with a completely unique style and a new discovery on an ancient text: a Heedoosh.
With record-breaking CD sales and scores of
sold-out performances, Blue Fringe is fast establishing itself as America's
favorite Jewish rock band.
Captivating large and enthusiastic audiences of all ages across the religious spectrum throughout the U.S. and abroad, the band successfully mixes pop, rock, funk and RandB with Jewish themes that are particularly relevant today.
In the 3 years since its inception, Blue Fringe
has released two albums. Their debut album, My Awakening, (June 2003)
featured compositions ranging from soul-searching to satiric, setting a new
standard for Jewish popular music.
Boasting a more mature sound, the group's sophomore album, 70 Faces (June 2005) features 11 original songs, in Hebrew and English, offering a rare blend of Jewish themes and a contemporary sound remindful of the Dave Matthews Band, Coldplay and John Mayer.
