“Dear God” is Yitzchok Meir's first full-record offering, a symbioses of genre, vibe, reflections and hopes. The move-along groove and the gently laid lyrics ease you into a journey through identity, love, loss, war and peace. Eclectic, sometimes-edgy arrangements and ensembles prove worthy of a maturing, grander perspective, echos recalled in a smooth and sensual vocal performance. What comes out is a classy and suave flirtation of jazzy flows and bluesy bass, peppered with the occasional ballad and campus quad acoustic. “Dear God” is Yitzchok Meir's witty, subtle, well-seasoned prayer for the world.
