‘Distant Cousins’ Comes Home
February 28 , 8:00 pm
Distant Cousins is an LA-based folk/pop trio with strong Jewish and
local roots. Dov Rosenblatt, former lead singer of Blue Fringe, and Ami
Kozak, grew up in NJ and graduated, a few years apart, from TABC in
Teaneck. Duvid Swirsky (Moshav band) grew up in Israel on the
moshav founded and influenced by Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach.
Having met years ago when their bands often overlapped, the three singers, songwriters, and producers formed Distant Cousins in 2013 and, in
addition to their concerts, have had their music featured in films like
“This Is Where I Leave You,” commercials for brands like Macy’s,
movie trailers for “Daddy’s Home” and “How To Train Your Dragon
3,” and on numerous TV shows. Their new album, “Next of Kin,” was
released last month by Jullian Records and has already won praise from
music critics and Jewish media.
The review from Hollywood’s famous record store, Amoeba Records, described the album as “filled with infectious hooks and floor-stompin’ riffs,” and “feels familiar, warm, and alive with excitement… Basically, it’s the sound of your new favorite band.”
