Biography

Amiram Inc.

After years of playing gigs in various clubs in France, Scandinavia and England, recording as a solo artist, and even busking in the streets of New York, Israeli/Norwegian Amiram Eini decided to go back to his musical roots and start a band. He joined forces with bass player Shai Saadon, and drummer Alon Tavori, and the trio started playing gigs on the Tel Aviv scene as �Amiram�s Band�. English born, classically trained violinist and vocalist Emily Bennett soon joined in, and the lineup was completed by guitarist Assaf Barak. Renaming themselves �Amiram Inc.�, the�now quintet�intensified�work on their live show, performing across the country and quickly creating a faithful following.
A few months down the road they entered the studio to record their debut album,
Little defects. Recorded in Tel Aviv, mixed in Oslo Norway and mastered in Stockholm Sweden, the album reflects the band�s diverse influences, drawing from such greats as David Bowie, Bob Dylan, Pearl Jam, Muse, Led Zeppelin, Dave Matthews Band, Ben Harper, Jeff Buckley and others, as well as more eclectic sources like Norwegian rock cabarets. The cultural melting pot in the band creates musical tensions that while leaning heavily on a singer songwriter base, carry a strong post grunge dynamic drive.
Amiram's thoughtful lyrics, unconventional melody lines and voice, along with Emilys violin and vocals captured the audiences immediately. The album was met with raving reviews in some of the country's leading magazines.�
Early 2007 the first single from the album "Allright" was released and instantly became a hit on both national and local radio stations across the country. After their Australian single debut and a successfull U.K tour this summer , Amiram Inc are looking towards their Scandinavian album release in 2008. Quickly moving their sound into the international music scene > Amiram Eini is currently performing solo and acoustic gigs while working on the second studio album

Lyrics

Chance

Written By: Amiram Eini

You don't have to take this chance. You still have your chance to run. I guess I also had that choice, but I having too much fun. I look inside I see pieces of myself fade away, I wonder if they were worth hanging on to. I tried to make you believe I couldn't lose either way, but I don't think I fooled you.

Just trying to protect you from the consequence not really making any kind of sense. I'm walking in the dark I would like to make it slow, but it's already too far down to whatever there's below. It's already too far down yeah.

You came to me for answers all I do is hesitate, lost in conflicting dreams trying to find my way. But I was too far down too long to care, and if I knew where I was going could you meet me there, would you meet me there.

Just trying to protect you from the consequence not really making any kind of sense. I'm walking in the dark I would like to make it slow, but it's already too far down to whatever there's below. It's already too far down yeah.

I was looking for some sense of direction, trying to get off this road I was going. Now you tell it was all just some kind of distraction. And the stains on these sheets they are showing. They are showing

Just trying to protect you from the consequence not really making any kind of sense. I'm walking in the dark I would like to make it slow, but it's already too far down to whatever there's below. It's already too far down yeah.

Sweet Surrender

Written By: Amiram Eini

We're both lost in this rhythm. Trying to sleep while standing up. We both pretend it's a joke and one day it will stop. But we're on an island and there's no one else around. Just you and me caressing this magic that we found

You made me depend on your sweet surrender, made me pretend I won't be lost without you. Somtimes it's scary how easy it is to get lost inside. Your love is out of sight.

Her fragrance hangs on the tip of my lips forever burned on my mind. She gives up so easy. I let down my guard and lessons I've learned, I've learned while walking blind.

She made me depend on her sweet surrender, made me pretend I wouldn't be lost without her. Somtimes it's scary how easy it is to get lost inside. Your love is out of sight.

She so beautiful her skin is so sweet, something in that air you could never satisfy thinking about those moments when our eyes would meet. And that look on her face will make you want to cry. And you don't ask why.

Allright

Written By: Amiram Eini

Allright

Something that's been on my mind from the world I left behind
maybe I should just let it be.
I should have been alone that night, but somehow it felt alright I just liked being free.
I knew she was into kinky shit but that was just a part of it. The moment was mine to chose. And then there was the sex again but I didn’t want her as my friend I had nothing to lose

Chorus: And it was alright at the time it was alright

I'm not going to pretend I didn’t like this decadence I didn’t linger to deep.
But in this emotional debate I was just a featherweight sincerely lacking sincerity

Chorus: And it was alright at the time it was alright

Repeating this old argument about how I should repent its an old refrain. And though I might pay the price for having had my kind of life I would do it over again

Chorus: And it was alright at the time it was alright

Tango, can't pretend

Written By: Amiram Eini

Tango( can't pretend )

Get up get bored go out get whored, find out whats in store if you don't mind
Look sharp look cool remember nobodies fool. That's the rule if you don't mind

If you don't mind being out of time out of place, not recognize your face in the mirror goes to show you who was right
If you don't mind shoving their face in the dirt for a pretty skirt laid out on your bed at night... it goes to show you who was right


Chorus: And I can't pretend, to know
And I don't mean to be mean
but I really don't know what it would take, what it would take. What it would take
To come clean

If this sounds angry its cause I"m tired of apologies broken hearts and skinned knee's if you don't mind
Looking for some understanding, and the tenderness that's demanding if you don't mind

If you don't mind being out in the line of fire in the rampage of desire
out of control. Beware of your soul

Chorus:
