Here's an excerpt of an interview that Dovid Stein gave a couple of months ago:
There has been a LOT of talk on the web in the last few weeks about Dovid Stein. So far 2 release dates were given and no product. Here we have some Q & A with Dovid about the album and a 3 min preview of one of the songs to whet your appetite.
How long have you been working on this cd? ? About two years
How did you meet Eli Gerstner? Yossi Newman who leads the Yeshiva Boys Choir is also a very well known One Man Band, he plays keyboard. We were doing a lot of weddings together and he was the "shadchan" between Eli and I.
Why didn't the cd come out when you say it would on yud tes kislev? The original date WAS for Yud Tes Kislev but it was very difficult for Eli to get me in the studio to do the vocals because B"H i'm very busy with weddings.
Why now did it get pushed off again till Rosh Chodesh Elul? The CD is actually ready to be printed, however Eli as well as Mendy Werdyger from Aderet didn't think that right before pesach was the best time to release a new album, because of sfirat haomer. Meaning we would have to invest in advertising and then we would only have two weeks for the album to sell before sfira, and after going over this with Eli, Mendy, and my Rebbe'im we concluded that the best time would be right after everyone gets back from summer vacation.
What do you do in the meanwhile? Are you performing? I sing at a lot of weddings in the
Please tell me about the album and what there is to look forward to? The album has 12 amazing songs. Eli wrote most of them but we have some from Yitzi Waldner, Yossi Green, Yosef Chaim Bloch, and we have arrangements from Yisroel Lamm, Eli Gerstner and Moshe Laufer. I basically wanted a Mordechai Ben David style album with an Eli Gerstner twist to it, and I think that people will be very pleasantly surprised when they hear it.
