Alex Krawczyk finds light in the darkness with her uplifting and inspiring debut album Le Olam — showcasing today on Tinnitist.

Sharing its title with the Hebrew word for Forever, Le Olam fittingly finds the Toronto singer-songwriter sharing her thoughts on a slate of eternal, universal topics like love, loss and grief. As she voices tenderly personal lyrics in soulful and sincere tones atop a rich, earthy backdrop of country, pop, soul, folk and blues, Krawczyk creates an oasis of soothing reassurance and hope amid the drama and darkness of contemporary life. And invites comparison to everyone from Bonnie Raitt and Susan Tedeschi to LeAnn Rimes and Adele in the process.

It’s all the more impressive when you learn that Krawczyk considers herself a person of few words. And that Le Olam was born of deeply devastating circumstances that are both intensely personal yet invasively public. Krawczyk began writing the songs for Le Olam as a way of healing from the traumatic loss of her parents Honey and Barry Sherman, the billionaire philanthropists mysteriously slain in their Toronto mansion in 2017. Penning songs like Remember, Better Days and standout track There Will Be Light proved not only cathartic for Krawczyk, but also provided hope for her circle of friends and supporters.

Quite rightly, Le Olam eventually came to fruition with the help of friends like songwriter Robbie Roth and Canadian vocalist Dione Taylor. “I worked with Robbie Roth on this album. We have been writing songs together since 2019 and recorded the album during the pandemic in 2020 and 2021,” Krawczyk says. “This album was recorded safely during the pandemic, with all of the artists recording individually, yet it has come together beautifully, and I am truly grateful for the many talented artists who were involved, including Dione Taylor, who is a very gifted Canadian singer.”

When she’s not working on music, Krawczyk devotes much of her time to working with charitable initiatives in her community. Don’t look for her to take the stage for live performances any time soon, though. Preferring to stay out of the limelight, she continues to write and record new music, sharing her journey of hope and healing one song at a time.
