Werdyger's songs and music may be considered Contemporary Hasidic. The music used in his first two albums was generically similar to the Hasidic performers of the early 1990s, with noticeable electric guitar interludes.
With his third album, Shiru Lamelech, Werdyger placed emphasis on using acoustic guitar in a more country music and kumzitz fashion.
Keeping up with technology, Werdyger released his fifth album, Lev Echad, with much innovation. The music genre was more funk with compositions by Rabbi Akiva Homnick, Aharon Razel, and Werdyger cowriting with Eli Laufer. Sound and digital effects on this album were engineered by Eli Leshinsky.
Using Lenticular printing, the CD cover of Lev Echad showed Hasidic men dancing on a colorful background. Parallel to the music CD, Werdyger released the music tracks with visual video animation depicting himself singing the album's songs. The animation was created by artist Peretz Schmukler.
Werdyger has produced his father's albums starting from 2001; albums produced include:
Werdyger assisted in the production of HD video and song "Unity For Justice" performed by MBD together with Avraham Fried and 30 famous Jewish singers. This song was created and performed in solidarity with Sholom Rubashkin, in protest of injustice in his widely publicized case in the USA.
Werdyger is the son of Mordechai Ben David and grandson of David Werdyger. His uncle Mendy is also a singer and owner of the Jewish record label Aderet Records and music retail store Mostly Music. Yeedle was reported to senior Halachic authorities in Israel and Chassidic Rebbes for having extramarital sex with a religious married mother of five from London at the Avenue Plaza Hotel, Brooklyn in September 2008. His cousin Yisroel Werdyger (son of Mendy) is also a singer.
