JDub Records is pleased to announce the return performance of musical eccentric, beat juggler, mad hip hop scientist and klezmer master Socalled.

SoCalledSederSocalled is a musician, photographer, magician and writer based in Montreal. He was born Josh Dolgin in Ottawa, Ontario and raised just north, in Chelsea, Quebec. As a kid he was always in musicals and drew cartoons for the Ottawa Citizen. He hated soccer. He was bribed by his mother to continue piano lessons until high school, then he picked up the accordion. He wrote for the newspaper and played in any kind of band – salsa, gospel, rock, funk – then discovered MIDI and hip hop. He worked with rappers, he made madd beats, he got into studios. He graduated from McGill and made a 50 minute animated film for the Canada Council, meanwhile writing for Hour Magazine and performing. He has now appeared on a dozen recordings as pianist, singer, arranger, rapper, writer and producer. He rocks the machine in David Krakauer’s Klezmer Madness!, sings with Toronto-based Beyond the Pale, performs with home-base band Shtreiml in Montreal, and with the LA-based Aleph Project. He conducts the Addath Israel choir for High Holidays. Socalled performs and records widely with a crew of mixed-up freaks and geniuses from around the world, including Killah Priest, Susan Hoffman- Watts, Frank London, Gonzales and Irving Fields.

Socalled will be performing songs from his critically acclaimed The So Called Seder: A Hip Hop Haggadah, as well as previewing tracks from his upcoming release Ghettoblaster. He will be joined for this special performance at Joe’s Pub by his usual rag tag cast of musical vagabonds including; C-Rayz Walz, Montreal’s Queen of Country Lady Katie Moore, Susan Watts Hoffman and other surprise guests.
