Y. Dan Rubenstein Weaves Stories of Growth In Single Don’t Break What You Cannot Fix

2 Apr

Y. Dan Rubenstein channels his inner storyteller in the single Don’t Break What You Cannot Fix from his debut album Stolen Moments. Set to release this summer, Rubenstein is already setting a strong foundation with his diverse songs filled with jazz and Latin influence. Yet, do not compartmentalize that sound as Rubenstein intertwines traditional rock arrangements in there as well. Comparable to others within the songwriting space, musicians are taking on the world issues head on by singing about them. Through the song, he points out the themes of resistance and fighting with strong lyrics that fill heavy hearts. “It’s easier to insist than break what you cannot fix” is just one highlight of how he expresses some of the political state of America and how people view it, and promote change. While some may not warm up to hearing about current issues within music, the single expresses a mixture of concern, reflecting, and activism all rolled up into one. Musicians like Y. Dan Rubenstein may not fill your car radio’s playlist day in and day out, but I can picture at a show a whole audience being moved by his activism and musicianship driving the steering wheel of inspiration.
