Israel Singer, a regular contributor to The Jewish World with his IzVisions cartoon, has released a new six song EP (extended play) entitled “Under The Radar.” Singer performs and records under the moniker “As Iz”, a one-man band, playing guitar, harmonica, and singing while simultaneously playing bass drum and snare with foot pedals. As Iz began as a recording project in 1989, with the release of a self-titled cassette EP.
Singer (As Iz) writes, performs, and records all tracks himself. A featured song “No Words” was written the weekend of October 7, 2023 in reaction to the Hamas attacks on Israel. The new release, which is available to purchase and stream via Apple Music, Spotify, Bandcamp, and other digital music platforms, will also be available on CD. Information, including songs and videos, may be found on Singer’s ReverbNation page, www.reverbnation.com/theizz.
Singer performs throughout the region in music clubs, breweries, and restaurants, as well as in healthcare and senior facilities. He is a member of the American Federation of Musicians Local 14.
Singer and his wife Margo are members of Congregation Berith Sholom and the Nassau Synagogue, where Izzy Singer serves as vice president. Residing in Castleton, they are enthusiastic supporters of various local and national music acts.
