Jamie Marx has served as cantor of Temple Sholom in Broomall, PA, since 2014.
In 2017, he released his first album of Jewish hard rock, In Pursuit, which followed two singles of Jewish pop released in 2015 and 2016 respectively, "Bless This Year" and "Story of Your Dreams." Transcontinental Music selected “Bless This Year” for inclusion in the songbook Chazak v’Ematz: Jewish Songs of Protest and Hope. He is actively working on new music for his second album of Jewish hard rock, Restless Heart, to be released in early 2019.
He was invited to perform on the Jewish Rock Radio stage at the Union for Reform Judaism Biennial Convention in Boston in December 2017 and was selected as a Jewish Rock Radio Emerging Artist in October 2017. In July 2019, he will be serving as Scholar-in-Residence at the Mifgash Musicale, a training program for cantorial soloists and synagogue musicians.
In Pursuit and Restless Heart were the realization of an idea that came to mind several years ago and got a big jump forward after an appearance on "Who Wants to be a Millionaire" in December 2016. On the side, Jamie writes and sells Purim spiels for synagogues and other Jewish organizations.
