"It looks like it's been years since such a promising talent has arise here. It'll be interesting to follow Amit's development" - (Avi Efrati, Tel-Aviv Paper, August 11, 2006)


"The greatest promise of Israeli lo-fi" - Alon Uziel, Walla! Portal, July 26 2006


He sounds so fragile, so delicate. But within this beautiful, crystal voice, hidden such an amazing power, that the only thought left for the caught-in-the-whirlpool listener, is to close his eyes, to become addicted, and wait for the storm to fade - Qube Magazine, July 2006


Even though the album's main instruments are Amit's vocals and acoustic guitar, these songs are small diamonds that gets polished one after the other. - Shai Lahav, Maariv newspaper, July 2006

With a rich repertoire behind him of countless shows around Israel, collaborations with the finest local musicians, and four releases – Amit Erez is considered one of the most interesting and fruitful musicians in Israel.

Amit's first recordings were made at home and compiled in an album called Wish I Could Make It A Story, which was self-released. Shortly after, Amit spend a year in Rotterdam for studies, and upon his return he joined the indie-rock band Eatliz as a guitar player.

Amit's first, nationwide distributed release, was an acoustic, intimate EP called "Black Light" (2006, Earsay Records) which won the hearts of many radio editors and listeners, and helped him establish himself as one of the leading figures in the Israeli English singer/songwriters circle.

In 2007 Amit signed with Anova Music, who released Amit's second album (his first full length) in November that year. The album was the result of a productive collaboration with a rock band, and provided two hit singles –Clever and Strong and Postcard. The later, was released with an accompanied video clip and also won the Vox Populi prize of the Independent Music Awards, while stirring awareness of Amit's music throughout the world.

In 2008, Amit played a full band show at the Livorno Lovewave Festival in Italy, on a stage headlined by The Chemical Brothers, and later on that year he was chosen to play at the Popkomm conference.

April 2009 saw his first international release – Summer Conquered by Rain. The album is a compilation of songs from his two previous albums, and was only available digitally.

His latest album, titled Last Night When I Tried to Sleep I Felt The Ocean With My Fingertips was released in 2009.
