In the little things lurk the big picture, and the details of everyday life suggest the wild regions of the heart. Jerusalem-born vocalist and composer Ayelet Rose Gottlieb sings from these spaces, accessing the compelling, tumultuous world of her homeland. These days she celebrates the release of her fourth album,’Roadsides‘, giving voice to a distressed hope via Israeli and Palestinian Poetry. Written over many years, the songs of Roadsides (Arogole Music; release: October 15, 2014) chronicle clunky ceiling fans and hymns of female blessing, watermelon hugs and sorrowful absences, abandoned sheds and soaring, hopeful wings. Gottlieb’s voice, with its cool refinement and warm welcome, brings a jazz-inflected, pitch-perfect sense to these little, but weighty tales. Supported by a band of close collaborators, Gottlieb presents the flavours and sensations of everyday life, in what she calls an ‘open letter to my homeland.’
