With his messages of peace and love, Florida-based singer-songwriter Len Seligman delivers words of understanding and tolerance on his 2020 solo album, his third, called Our Turn Now. On the 11-track Our Turn Now, Len plays guitars, ukulele, mandolin, synth and bass while getting help from a wide range of musicians and harmony vocalists, including his brother Jon Seligman, who receives a co-composing credit on a track here. It’s comforting to know that in these troubled times, artists such as Len Seligman sound very relaxed and hopeful. Len’s lyrics and liner notes fill in the listener about his story in the CD booklet. There’s even an album-closing instrumental, with a distinctly Middle Eastern meets Eastern European melodic approach that teams Len with some dazzling percussion from his brother Jon. Songs of achieving equality and civil rights, overcoming persecution and personal pitfalls of depression and spiritual negativity are all topics put under the sonic microscope on Len Seligman’s Our Turn Now. A fine example of modern day folk/Americana, Len Seligman’s Our Turn Now will blow away your blues and bring you to a more hopeful place in the world.
