Biography

I was born in Israel. I moved to the UK 5yrs ago and I am now a UK Citizen.

I started music by playing the piano at the age of 4. By 6 I was taking professional lessons.

At the age of 10 I won my first musical competition by penning a song about the red and green men in the traffic lights. The song was used nationally to teach school kids road safety, and I was awarded first place and a prize from the chief of police.... aaahhh.

At the age of 14 I was awarded a place at Thelam Yalin, Israel's most prestigious music, dance and acting school. I trained hard, with my previous lessons it extends into 10yrs of vocal, classical, jazz, dance and creative writing.
I sang solo for the Philharmonic Orchestra and even learnt the double bass!!

By the time I was 16 I was awarded a postion at Berklee Contempoary School Of Music in the USA. One the worlds best. However, I had other plans.... enough of schools and musos.

I broke out into the world and joined my first rock band.... I was kicked out a few months later for upstaging the boys!!

So I locked myself away and wrote some songs that I liked, and that I wanted to hear. I teamed up briefly with a known producer and we recorded an album in a bomb shelter on a kibbutz! Unfortunatly that album never saw the light of day and we split soon after.

I did various projects and sessions but it was at this point that I realised that my passions would never be encouraged, believed or fullfilled all the time I remained in Israel. So I packed my bags and hit the shores of Britian.

The UK has been kind to me. My songwriting and performances have flourished here. People have started to sit up and listen. And the more that happens, the better I get!

I need your help though. If you like what you hear/see please spread the word by telling your friends about these free downloads from my Members Area. You'll find all the details on my website.

Set List

I have two set lists that I perform.
I don't currently have a band... that's gonna have to wait until I move to London in a couple of months!

Set list 1: Just me and my acoustic guitar - I prefer to not play too many songs like this, short sets, say 3 to 5 songs.

Set list 2: Me, my guitar and my backing tracks.
I am my band. This set I can perform 1 to 10 tracks or more if need be. I've actually got over 100 songs recorded, but not being famous I like to choose just a few of the best so hopefully the crowd stay with me.... and someone buys me a Whiskey afterwards! hint hint...
