Three years after the release of his mega hit debut album Modim Anachnu, Shloime Taussig returns with his all-new “Taussig 2”, an album that delivers from the first track to the last, showcasing Taussig’s impressive vocal skills.
Taussig 2 includes twelve songs, with contributions from some of today’s best known composers including Yossi Green, Lipa Schmeltzer, Pinky Weber, Yitzy Waldner, Ruli Ezrachi, Eli Cohen and Motty Ilowitz. A bonus track, featuring all-new arrangements on Taussig’s extremely popular single L’Hashem Haaretz Umloah composed by Yitzchok Fuchs, adds an extra shot of pizzazz to this long awaited album.
Produced by Yossi Tyberg and Gershy Moskovitz of TeeM Productions, the album features a wide array of musical styles and takes a very upbeat direction with a large selection of leibidig songs, including Sasson V’simcha, a fresh new chosson kallah song done in a samba style, Hecher, a pulsating, energetic Hebrew/Yiddish song; and S’iz Git, an uplifting Arabic/Yiddish hora.
Also on board for this exciting project are arrangers Ruvi Banet, Shua Fried, Mona Rosenblum, Ruli Ezrachi, Eli Lishinsky, Yitzy Berry and Eli Cohen. A childrens choir adds to the magic, as does choir work by Motty Ilowitz, Avrumi Berko, Chilu Pozen, the Yedidim and Mezamrim choirs, and several of the arrangers.
Shloime Taussig became a household name with the release of his debut album Modim Anachnu. While hit songs such as Mi Shemamin, Yehi Yehi and Hareini Mizamen made the album a success, it was the title track Modim Anachnu that literally propelled Taussig into the musical stratosphere. Already popular on the wedding scene, with the release of Modim Anachnu, Taussig instantly became a fixture on the broader Jewish music scene, appearing regularly at events and concerts, both locally and abroad. Taussig also appeared in two star studded musical videos, Unity and Copyright, and his vocals have appeared on numerous albums and projects.
The new album is due out Shavuos time and will be distributed by Aderet Music.
