Musician, singer/songwriter, actor and entrepreneur, Evan Malach is the 1st-place winner of Israel’s Hallelujah Global Jewish Singing Contest. He has written two musicals, including A Simple Twist of Faith, an original piece based on a true story of Jewish survival through kindness. When All is One is his third full-length album of Jewish roots rock and he is currently working on a fourth album of original songs. Evan’s music has enabled him to perform around the world; we’re excited to have him play back home at Makom!
Dana Sipos inhabited the far north before going nomad and her hypnotic, tenderly skewed songs are filled with a wild wind. She tours extensively, occasionally by bicycle, tall ship, canoe and train. Her last album, Roll Up the Night Sky, released on underground Nashville label Muddy Roots Records, was nominated for a Canadian Folk Music Award in the Pushing the Boundaries category. A new album, recorded with experimental Toronto producer Sandro Perri and featuring a breadth of Canadian talent, will be released on Roaring Girl Records in spring 2018.
