NMM SoundBytes: Jordana Shows Off Her “Superpower”

On her latest release, Zahava, Jordana Talsky shows off her superpower – her golden voice. The album title, also Talsky’s middle name, means “golden” in Hebrew. On the album, she does 100% of the music and vocal with her voice using vocal looping. There are very few artists or songs that one can cite when talking about vocal looping as the sole form of music. Bobby McFerrin’s “Don’t Worry Be Happy” comes to mind, but examples are few and far between. There’s a good reason for that… recording a full song with only one voice as the instrument is a monumental task. Thus, Talsky creating an album this way is no small feat.

While one could easily pick any of the album’s tracks as the first of today’s SoundBytes, it’s the opener that hits this music aficionado most. While she’s seeking a “Superpower” for love, it’s her vocal superpower that’s on full display – literally performing parts traditionally performed by instruments ranging from drums to bass to keyboards. Combine this amazing vocal loop backdrop with a powerful lead vocal and the resulting track is magic.

After he stopped regularly running local concerts in Northern NJ and the greater Philly area, he knew he needed to step up his writing game if he expected to continue to get free music to listen to. He writes regularly here and at Cinapse, as well as contributing to a few other sites on occasion. He likes music, film, the Philadelphia Eagles, the 76ers, talking about Criminal Justice, reading Intelligence Report, and his family... not in that order. His beautiful wife is far more talented than he is and his kids far more adorable... and crazy.
