Aaron Markovitz

Having been born and raised in the metro Detroit area, Aaron began his Jewish education at Temple Israel, making his tenure as the Burton A. and Sandra D. Zipser Foundation Artist in Residence more serendipitous and special. From picking up a guitar at 7 years old, he cut his teeth on the blues riffs of Stevie Ray Vaughan, and gained a formal music education from The Los Angeles Music Academy (now, the Los Angeles College of Music). As the years went by, Aaron listened and learned, honing, and growing his skills like a grapevine in every direction, and found his sweet spot nestled somewhere between Country and Bluegrass. He writes songs that harken back to the deep roots of American music but carry a contemporary flare. 

Now, thanks to the Zipser Foundation, Aaron has been able to bring his songwriting talents to the Jewish community, working closely with the Cantors and music team to create new music for the Jewish community, and to create musical Shabbat experiences at Temple's services. For his debut into the world of Jewish music, Markovitz has just released his first recording of original, joyful Jewish music, “An Infinite Wave”: a product of the last year spent composing original works and crafting brand new settings of liturgy and texts. Aaron states, “coming back to Temple Israel to work and to continue my Jewish education has led to a growth and deepening of my Jewish roots and identity, for which I am so grateful. With the release of “An Infinite Wave”, my journey begins to become an important voice in contemporary Jewish music and I’m so excited to see what the next chapter in my time with Temple Israel brings!”

Reviews

"Just hearing the opening notes on Aaron Markovitz’s new album, An Infinite Wave, you know you’re in for something special.   The songs showcase Aaron’s exceptional musicianship and polished songwriting, with rich thought-provoking lyrics supported by beautiful arrangements somewhere at the intersection of Americana, country, bluegrass, folk, and Jewish music.  This album and this artist are destined for greatness."
