Daniel Cainer: Jewish Chronicles

Daniel Cainer: Jewish Chronicles

“You don’t have to be Jewish or British to get a kick out of Cainer’s Shtick” – LA Times

Daniel Cainer – More Jewish Chronicles

On tour in the US – Spring 2022

Direct from London, multi-award-winning musical story-teller Daniel Cainer returns from the wilderness with another collection of unique stories-in-song: More Jewish Chronicles. With humour, wit, emotional resonance and even a dose of spiritual profundity, Daniel examines more than what it means to be Jewish. Cainer is brilliant, charming, funny and still writes his own promotional copy. You’ll leave with a full heart and a head full of tunes you’ll not forget.
Cainer is now a veteran of five off-Broadway runs and was a 2020 MAC songwriter award finalist.  He has written scores for film and television, his songs have been covered by a number of well known artistes in the UK and the US, he’s been the ‘Singing Reporter’ on the BBC Radio & TV with his topical songs and more recently the world’s only ‘Singing Astrologer’ (probably). You can also hear his more contemplative material being sung by cantors in temples in the US and UK.
Here’s what some of the top names in the Jewish musical world have to say.:
“His words and stories, his gorgeous melodies and compositions, the journey he takes us on, familiar to all of us and yet so singularly his. Go to bed early or stay up late but just make sure you see Dan wherever in the world he is, whenever you can. He is not to be missed.”- Julie Silver
“Daniel Cainer is an absolute gem. A brilliant performer and a stellar songwriter. Full of wit, charm and heart his music celebrates the complexity and joy of being human.An evening with Daniel Cainer is a journey full of laughter, tears, hope and beauty, one you won’t soon forget.”- Eliana Light
“His Jewish songcraft is immaculate and his skill is unmatched.  Nobody does it better.    Dan Nichols
“Daniel Cainer knows what he wants to say and how to say it.  Our gift is his willingness to share the song and story with us.’ Craig Taubman
‘Call him a comedian, a spinner of tales, a homespun philosopher – beneath the rapid-fire delivery there lurks a warm Jewish soul and a feeling of comfort, of home.”- Theo Bikel
