Looking at the past, whenever there has been a need for change, we have found something new, exciting and different in music. The sound of music reaches ears and has proven to be a successful vehicle to bring a message to all humankind.
Think about the message we get from the music we hear, how our thoughts, speech and actions are so influenced. What if the airwaves were filled with songs that speak about the striving to become better people?
With this idea, I have established a not for profit organization called A New Song. A New Song is a charity (tax ID: 852049604) dedicated to using the power of music to unite, inspire and give strength to people from all walks of life. Our desire is to see individuals, families and communities enlightened and motivated to doing good things.
All of your donations enable us to promote our artists and their positive messages throughout the world. With technology today we can reach so many people. Music is such an incredible tool; let's use it for good! I encourage anyone and everyone to listen to the songs we are promoting and choose to help promote a message you feel good about.
Join me and be a part of making positive changes throughout the world. Wishing you all only good things.

Newly created non-profit promotes the power of positive music
(New York) Positive music has long been understood to have the ability to foster change in the world. With that in mind a newly created non-profit organization - founded by accomplished singer/songwriter Geoffrey Sloshay - is working to showcase music that focuses on universally uplifting messages.
A New Song USA launched in December with a website and social media presence, and has already generated a growing following. “I wanted to create awareness around the impact of everything we see and hear,” Sloshay said. “The ability of music to lift spirits and create change is tremendous and with A New Song USA we can harness that power to bring about positive change in the world.”
“Music can be used in so many ways,” he said. “It can take a listener on a powerful journey of self-exploration, or investigate the depths of love and kindness. With the not-for-profit, I hope to bring enlightened musical choices to the masses. I want to create a center of uplifting music for all of those that desire to see everyone work together for a better world.”
Sloshay’s work has been generating growing attention, a credit he said to the positivity in his music. “This is just a first step,” Sloshay said. “In the future, we hope A New Song USA can feature artists with good moral character that can serve as role models. I believe positive action starts with hearing a positive message and with A New Song USA we hope to share songs written and performed by artists that everyone can look up to.”
Sloshay, who performs under his stage name Gedalya and has long been known as the “folk-rock Rabbi,” pulled from his own collection to launch the website with the hope of drawing interest from other musicians that perform music with meaning, and to also secure sponsors. “Our current featured song, Pulling Strings is emblematic of the message A New Song USA is looking to promote,” Sloshay said. I believe in the power of music and the messages contained in songs. A New Song USA is a way to promote good music to those that may not otherwise receive it.
We are looking to promote artists that share a universal message that people can be affected positively by.”
The song Pulling Strings has received great reviews as well as on-line radio play and is available to hear at A New Song USA as well as gedalyasings.com, along with works going back to the earliest recordings of music by the singer/songwriter. “By sharing this music, we are helping to not just make a difference for the musicians we focus on, but to help others make a difference in their own lives and communities in locations around the world,” Sloshay said. “Nothing makes me happier than knowing that the music we are working to promote is creating ripples of positivity that will spread throughout the world.”
While the program continues to source funding and artists to promote, Sloshay said any help is vital to creating those positive changes. “In the early days of any not-for-profit finding all of the partnerships that will create a successful organization is vital,” Sloshay said. “So far, we have seen how important this work is for our backers and I am certain as we continue to work and grow, we will find more music to promote and solidify our impact in the world of music production and promotion. The more people that sign on, sign up, donate or spread the word the stronger the message that positive music can create real change.”
“Think about the message we get from the music we hear, how our thoughts, speech and actions are so influenced,” he said. “For those that support us, I say only, ‘Let’s fill the airwaves with songs that speak about the constant endeavor to become better.’ All of your donations enable us to promote our artists and their positive messages throughout the world. Music is such an incredible tool; let's use it for good.” More information about the organization can be found at anewsongusa.com.

A New Song, a not- for-profit organization that seeks to enlighten and motivate
If there were ever a person who embodies the beauty and diversity of art in its entirety, Gedalya takes the prize not just for his passion, which continually projects through his work, but also for his commitment to use his gifts to promote positivity. As a multifaceted individual, this visionary has tasked himself with a mission to help others by targeting the area with the most impact: the internet. Without any formal music training, Gedalya is pretty much self-taught in matters music having been in the industry since the early 1990’s. His personal experiences served to mold him into the man that he is today, one who has seen both the secular and religious sides of life. Throughout, he has kept his individuality in his music as can be discovered in his website https://gedalyasings.com/. Gedalya stands as a force of good as he updates his message for our times. Another unique side to Gedalya is his acknowledgement that for change to happen, everyone must be ready to play his or her part. It is for this reason that he established A New Song, a not- for-profit organization that seeks to enlighten and motivate individuals, families, and communities toward goodness by influencing them through music. He also sets the stage to lend a hand to fellow artists who want a platform for their voices to be heard while making a positive impact on society. More can be learnt at https://www.anewsongusa.com/.
“State of Grace”-speaking to the fear from peer pressure that sometimes stops people from living their fullest life.
February 8, 2021
Even after finishing 2020 with a new album, the launch of an online music outreach not for profit and the development of a website that would house his entire catalogue, Geoffrey Sloshay – who performs under the stage name Gedalya and is popularly referred to as the Folk-rock Rabbi – has already jumped headfirst into 2021, with a new single available now on all major music platforms. “State of Grace” as a recent addition, speaking to the fear from peer pressure that sometimes stops people from living their fullest life. “With its inclusion in the A New Song roster, and the help of our generous patrons, it will reach a wider audience than if it was just me promoting it,” Gedalya said.
