Hey there! This page was created for you, so you can keep up with some of the wonderful and bizare twists in my personal journey. The ups and downs, the growth, and the writers block, the profound, and the utterly ridiculous. My name is Kerah, and I chose -not too long ago- to walk the road less traveled.
I've been raised singing Messianic praise and worship music, so I write a good deal of worship music,
but I find myself also writing songs about issues I face in my spiritual walk, thoughts I have,
or about people who inspire me.
I write about these things to point to a higher voice that speaks into every part of my life.
I write to encourage the current generation, and to bless the last generation with music for their children
that doesn't contain sex, self image, addictive substances, selfishness, discontentedness,
weird occult ideals, anger, or the worship of youth.
If I write about these things, my intentions will always be to reveal it's ugliness, never to glorify it.
I haven't really considered what my sound is because I like to write songs into what ever musical
direction that feels right. If I had to choose, I'd describe my music genre as Believing/Folk/Other.
I don't call my music Messianic, because most people wouldn't call it that either.
I have a heart for Israel, and I intend to put on my albums whatever the God of Israel tells me to.
I want to put scripture on every album I release, which means every album I create will have
at least one praise or worship song on it, or a piece of litergy.
Most of the music on Zemer Levav albums is praise and worship, and is definitely Messianic at it's core.
For those of you who really love the music we have produced;
my other material may take some time to get used to. Try not to take it for face value.
There is usually a deeper meaning, a story, and a message in every song.
Oh the adventures we’re already having. We’re in Deerfields for AMF!
Racing to a Pho Thai place before it closes. Hopefully we make it, what a great way to say good bye to my mother before she flys out to NV

July has been pretty interesting, between preparing for the Messiah Conference, and playing concerts we’ve been very blessed, and have made several new awesome friends!
It’s been SO hot, and I’m extremely thankful that our unit has an AC that works well. Andre and I are currently fighting off some kind of obnoxious cold, so I’m feeling super blessed to have creature features. <3
We definitely could use prayer right now for provision during our down time, we’ve broken three strings on the Harp, blown a tire on the truck, and a tire on our Airstream trailer, and we’ve been having several mechanical issues with the RV.
I’ve made a final song list for my 20 minute set, and I’m working on an acoustic arrangement of a song that I haven’t played in a while, I can’t wait to share it! I’m not going to tell you what song that is, but I CAN let you know that I’m playing “Things once lost” in my set. =)
I’m really looking forward to recording another Video Demo for Youtube. Andre wants to record it and release it after the Music Festival, so expect a new video sometime in the “teens” of August.
Recording the other two videos really made the reality of this project sink in. I feel a lot of peace, and I’m really looking forward to this future stuff.
We will be recording a new video demo, to release on the youtube channel KerahOliveira!

Believe it or not, there are still places in America where you can’t even send a text message.

I brought Andre out for his first authentic mediterranean food experience as a mini thank you for all the hard work and encouragement he’s put into promotional and web based work this past two weeks.
We recorded a special music video to premier on a local TV spot in Bristol, TN. Andre only had half the equipment he really needed, and we only had one day to shoot, but Andre really pulled it off. We’re so pleased with all the hard work he put into this project, through crashing programs, sweat, and bug bites. <3
