Gerard Edery has been singing the Jewish Liturgy of diverse origins for over 20 years. He has been a cantorial soloist for The Village Temple in New York City, leading High Holiday and other services for many years with Rabbi Chava Koster. He also performs with renowned cantors Alberto Mizrahi and Aaron Bensoussan in his group, The Sons of Sepharad, singing liturgical treasures from the Sephardi, Mizrahi and Ashkenazi traditions.
His utter ease is more likely the product of the same self-assurance and relaxation that make him comfortable singing in a dozen different languages, playing guitar in a multitude of styles and negotiating more than a half-millennium’s worth of Sephardic cultural history.

As a producer and performer, Edery is a cultural powerhouse: Bringing music from many Jewish traditions together, he urges his listeners both to know that Jews are connected by the same prayers the world over, and to discover how diverse the sounds of those prayers can be.
