Are you at all musical? I’m not the most musical in my family. I have a husband and kids who were blessed with that talent. But, I do love music. And today, I have a young woman who’s made music her career, and not in the way most women in the music industry do. Perl Wolfe is a chassidic music composer and singer who performs only in all women’s settings. Through her music and its lyrics she is able to express Jewish wisdom and the teachings of the chassidic mystical tradition, and help women find a space where they can connect with each other in a deeper level by the mere fact that no men are in the room! That can be really cool and really powerful. And it’s not just the Jewish world who’s embraced this. Perl, who used to be the lead singer in the all women’s chassidic band Bulletproof Stockings has received accolades and very positive feedback from the general public. I don’t know if you’ve even been to an all women’s performance, or even to a traditional Jewish wedding or other event where there were only women dancing and/or singing, but if you have, you might agree there’s a special energy which is very positive and very uplifting.
Perl and I go through the personal journey, which brought her to the point where she is now. Perl didn’t always know that this is what she wanted to do with her life, but at a downturn in her life, music played such an important role that it led her to where she is today. Speaking of today, it’s been about a year since Perl has embarked as a solo artist and she’s in the midst of recording her first album. So, if there are any female musicians out there, this might be a great opportunity. Perl is looking for talent. Email her at perlwolfemusicATgmail.com. Perl and I talk about the Divine Providence in her life, fears, challenges and what it’s been like embarking on uncharted territory. Now as a solo artist, Perl continues to pave the way in the music world, and use her talents to bring goodness and light into the world. Perl is a real inspiration not just on stage but off stage, and I’ll let you hear that for yourselves. Enjoy the show. Here’s Perl Wolfe.
