God is Near is a wonderful collection of original liturgical-based songs centered around the theme of God's presence in our lives.  Ranging from pop to jazz and from ballads to middle-eastern fare, these original melodies were composed by Tracy Friend and Andrew Dennen, who met several years ago at Hava Nashira, a Jewish music workshop held annually in Wisconsin. They have been collaborating since 2009.
