Becoming includes 15 original uplifting joyous songs, among them love songs, lullabies, songs of healing, peace, and forgiveness, in styles that range from jazz, folk, and pop (with a touch of gospel), to klezmer, liturgical, and a cappella. “The melodies are gorgeous, the harmonies luscious, the poetry exquisite.”

“After listening to Linda Hirschhorn's latest, I have to say that I am transported by her heavenly voice. In this genre-busting recording, "BECOMING" runs the gamut from lullaby to torch song to mizrachi (Eastern) groove to chamber music to swing, all with the same level of mastery that you've come to expect from this radically talented singer. After just a taste of this masterpiece, if you don't decide you want to be her when you grow up, you'll at least decide you want to spend endless hours listening to her.”

—Debra Kolodny, Director of א Aleph

A passionate a cappella celebration of women's voices and percussion with songs that affirm life and sing a vision of one world at peace - spanning the spectrum of original and traditional music - sung in English, Yiddish, Hebrew and Ladino. Heart Beat: a place where the personal, social, political and spiritual resonate in harmony. Includes a Yiddish song of resistance ("Zog Maran"), a Brazilian song of praise ("’lokim Noten Hakol"), and a joyous song adapted from a South African freedom anthem that will get you to your feet ("Ysh Lnu Koakh"). Derk Richardson of the San Francisco Bay Guardian said, "These Yiddish Divas make music that embodies peace, resilience, reconciliation, and the notion that we will overcome our enemies with our singing."

Another tapestry from Vocolot of breathtakingly beautiful melodies, harmonies and dynamic percussion. These songs are passionate, upbeat, and evocative, and take their inspiration from sources ranging from the ancient wisdom of Isaiah to the modern poet Walt Whitman. This is music with universal heart, Jewish soul and social conscience. Includes the passionate anti-war "Lo Yisa Goy," the sensuous, evocative "Sham‘h Vatismakh Tsiyon", and the award-winning "’rts Shivat Haminim".

A combination of cantorial and Middle-Eastern motifs. The music, deeply rooted in tradition, offers listeners melodies and chants for immediate incorporation into their own community's ritual observances and practices. The recording is a wonderful complement to Marcia Falk's Book of Blessings for Daily Life (Harper San Francisco 1996), a seminal work that restructures Jewish liturgy in Hebrew and English from a non-hierarchical gender-inclusive perspective.

Roots & Wings - songs of great melodic, lyrical, and spiritual depths and heights, suffused with lush harmonies. Original English and Hebrew compositions, a cappella or accompanied, these songs celebrate Shabbat, children, friendship, and peace. Includes the song "Circle Chant", sung and recorded by religious and politically conscious communities around the world. As Ronnie Gilbert of the Weavers said, "Roots & Wings makes me feel like wings, like sails, like water, like unfoldings. Linda is a gifted musician with a voice of pure honey."
