The man behind the Miami Sound is a man on a Mission. Third House Rising is a bold statement of faith and exhibits the musical power and passion that one would expect from a seasoned pro.

Third House Rising is perceptive, pure and poignant pop.

The Third House Rising CD, by Lawrence Dermer, is an explosion of celebration. It celebrates God's love for us, and our love for Him. The joy of this music, and the profound lyrics, radiate a message of hope for peace; both peace in the middle east, and peace through out the rest of the world. Lawrence has a superb voice. The instrumental effect is nothing short of heart pumping fireworks! The music entwines the energy of a little salsa, a little rap beat, and some exotic ethnic strains, making it appealing to a wide range of audiences. We got totally uplifted and energized by this invigorating music, from the first time we heard it. Knowing that this music with a message is the result of a loving family's collaboration, using their God given gifts, with passion,sincerity, and purpose,is icing on the cake. -Kathy and Rev. Jay P. Hurley Mount Moriah Baptist Church Smithfield, Pennsylvania THIRD HOUSE RISES TO GREATNESS "One of the most well-produced and properly engineered musical masterpieces I have heard in YEARS. You guys are going to put "good Jewish" music in a realm where it is no longer an oxymoron. It is absolutely phenomenal, lyrically sound, a little techno-groovy and borderline klezmer on track 1 WITHOUT sounding like clowns on crack! I absolutely love it! -Marcy J. Levinson Atlanta Jewish Times.
