Jerry Mogul was inspired by a late-in-life calling to communicate through music his passion for social justice and his empathy for the human condition that touches us all. His newly-found muse took him on a seven-year songwriting journey through musical genres centered around folk, rock and pop, with a few surprises along the way. There is a longing at the heart of our need to belong, to connect with, and to be a part of something larger than ourselves. Through intimate vignettes and topical stories, these 11 original lyric-driven songs describe the seeking, finding, or loss of those connections. As a thematic album, Belonging begins with a series of deeply-felt character sketches at various stages of life, then moves into topical songs that depict the whiplash of emotions from living through these fraught and tempestuous times, before coming full circle at the end.
