About Shlomo

Shlomo Abramson was born in the U.S. in 1985.  His family made Aliyah in 1986 and he grew up in Ramot in Jerusalem.  Shlomo has five brothers and one sister. He was raised in a house full of music and started playing guitar in high-school after taking piano lessons for most of his childhood.  His older brother, Naftali, began playing music seriously which paved the way for his younger brother. Inspired by a wide range of genres from Shlomo Carlebach to The Shins, Shlomo’s clear and melodious voice in tandem with his keen ear and musical gift have shaped him into a true artist.

Shlomo and his friend Udi Wertzberger formed “The Footsteps” and recorded their first album entitled Lech Lecha before entering into the army in 2005.  His army service, where he took part in the second Lebanon war, was the inspiration for many of his songs on his second album, including the cover song Chalomot and Sim Shalom.

After his army service, Shlomo married a new Olah from America, Nechama Abramson.  Shlomo and Nechama have 2 kids, Yehela and Ilan.  Shlomo got his degree in Optometry from Hadassah College and works as an optometric vision therapist at Lederman Vision in Jerusalem.  Shlomo sings in 2 wedding bands- Shovrey Hakosot and Naftali Abramson- and performs with Itzhak Meir and friends all over the country.  Shlomo has been a Chazzan (cantor) for the past 4 years over the High Holidays starting in Israel and now for Congregation Moses Montifiore Anshe Emunah in Baltimore, Maryland.

Shlomo loves to sing, write, compose and perform in English and in Hebrew. Whether it is at home with his family on a Saturday night or on Yom Kippur during Kol Nidrei Shlomo pours his heart and soul into his music.
