Hi friends! My name is Brianah Caplan and I’m a Jewish musician, songleader, and singer-songwriter based out of San Diego, CA. I am a full-time student at San Diego State University, but I spend my free time making “Meaningful Musical Moments” with kids and adults from all over. For the past 5 years, ever since I picked up a guitar for the first time, I’ve been inspired by those around me to continue making music and bringing people together with the power of song and prayer. My ultimate goal in life is to go to Rabbinical School and bring the power of music into my work as a Rabbi, but I’m not rushing it!

Since venturing out into the world of Jewish Music, I’ve also ventured into the world of writing my own, inspired by the texts that I grew up surrounded by. And now, with your help, I have the opportunity to make these melodies come to life! From Torah, to Psalms, to even the words of Rav Avraham Yisrael Kook, each melody has it’s own story and meaning to me. I feel deeply connected to each melody and text in their own unique ways.

For this project, I will be working with the incredible Scott Leader at Brick Road Studio in Scottsdale this summer. Scott has produced over 500 albums, many of them from Jewish Artists, and I am so lucky to be able to do this with him. The tracks will include some incredible musicians, and all the mixing and mastering will be done by Scott himself.

So, how do we do it?

Our goal is to come out of this with a finished and polished album, ready for everyone’s ears. That’s 10 songs of original Jewish Music! Each song costs about $1,000 to record, mix, and master.

I would love to share all of this music with you, but I can’t do it alone. This music means so much to me — it’s from the heart, it’s raw, and it’s inspired by each and every one of you. Thank you so much in advance for helping me achieve my dream of bringing the Jewish Community together through song and prayer. Your love and support will help us bring this album to life.

Please spread the word and share with anyone who you think may be interested.

I can’t wait to sing with you!

B’ahava (with love),
Brianah Caplan
