The Jewish Chronicles Starring Daniel Cainer (UK)
The Jewish Chronicles is a literal title: this is Daniel Cainer's personal journey in comic songs about his family and the Jewish world. Frank without controversy, personal without confrontation or any trace of bitterness, Daniel has impressive vocal, musical and emotional range.
He's warm, open, intimate, funny, as well as timely, exploring Jewishness in a turbulent 21st century. The songs are light but each is deeply felt; it's not on-stage therapy or cheap laughs at the expense of religion and culture. Daniel shares - without judgement - what he has found while exploring his roots. The rousing finale during which Daniel seems to finally reach his full confidence and richest voice is a gentle reminder that comedy need not be cruel, and cultural exploration can have great tunes.
Uniting gentile and Jew through his honest style of storytelling, you'd have to be a schmuck to miss it!
“Daniel Cainer has a natural gift for story-telling in song. With ironic takes on modern society, he has a partiality for walking the line between heart-breaking and heart-lifting.” The Telegraph (UK)
“Sophisticated, witty and touching.” Manchester Evening News
