A New Album from Alaina and Roman La'Voy


Although the release date has yet to be announced, I’m looking forward to a new and independent album from two promising artists. Alaina and Roman La’Voy have been recording tracks for Empty Rooms With Sounds of Prayer. With tracks like Oseh Shalom the album is recognizably Jewish and is still kitschy enough to be called messianic…but its kitschy cool. The sound is definitely folk…but folk frum. It’s going to be a CD with a vinyl soul.

When asked, Roman La’Voy explained that for him the most important track on the album is one entitled Teach Me to Overcome “because,” he said “every one struggles in faith.” The album strikes me as a refreshing folk soundtrack behind a Torah life.

Woo hoo! Can't wait to get his (or rather their) new kitschy cool folky frum CD. :) We listen to Roman's first one all the time.

This album is really amazing and is exactly what the messianic world needs. A new, fresh, messianic style in the spirit of inspirational folk and themes along the lines of Torah spirituality. From the preview I had I really enjoyed "Teach Me to Overcome" because it inspired me to continue to work on my challenges knowing that Hashem is with me in every success and failure.

Loved the folksy sound, great lyrics. I really liked the song based on 1 John 2:12-14.

Peace,

I seriously can't wait to get ahold of this album. Roman and Alaina did an amazing concert for us in Columbus during the Kabbetz HaEsrim Conference. "Deeper" was definitely my fav. :-) You guys rock!
