Biography

With more than 30 years of western Hemispere experience, from the interior regions of Alaska, to as far south as Panama, Central America, Amotz has those influences soaring through his music.

Here we have a new musical talent on The Continent with versatility, virtuosity and charisma. Undiscovered, yet incomparable to any music being played over the airwaves today, and still has the value of listenabilty.

He now has two published compositions; under Indie Alliance Adult Contemoprary Vol I, released Jan 7, 2008, "Just Breathe", and under Tomasian Entertainment! Rock OUTLOUD, to be released in July 2008, "Old School", His compositions are played regularly over internet station Down Unda Thunda Radio, in Australia, and IndieLife Radio, Rhode Island, USA.

Amotz, stage persona Gepetto, is a solo artist in every sense of the defining meaning. Production, performance, recording, mixing and mastering; all done in his home studio and with the quality and care of any studio on the commercial market. His raw wisdom of human nature gives the listener an insight into one’s own psyche.

Can we give a genre to his style? Perhaps not. Unless we just simply say INDIE, with all the genre free meaning Indie has always represented.

Musical influences from Americana, Real R & B, Eric Clapton, B. B. King, New Riders of the Purple Sage, Carlos Santana, Al Demiola, Doobie Bros, Allman Bros, Mountain, J. S. Bach, Jimi Hendrix, Steely Dan, John Lennon, George Harrison, Paul McCartney, Richard Starkey, Todd Rundgren, Frank Zappa, The Pink Floyd, Who, Guess Who, Pat Travers, Rush, Benny Goodman, William George Wasserman, and too many to mention them all.....Six millennia of musical conceptions.

Amotz now resides in Western Australia and is already working on his sophmore compilation with the influences of the area sure to affect the sound and music.

Lyrics

Street Song

Written By: Amotz Barak Ben-Israel

Will you give me this, let me barrow that
give a little more, ask a whole lot less
just walk away don't need the stress

(chorus)
Here on my street, everyone who meets at the round about
nothing ever changes the song remains the same

Jill asking James how ya do
sally want to know where to go
crazy bill smiles as he lights a cone

(chorus)
here on my street, everyone who meets at the round about
nothing ever changes the song remains the same

Mr Jones walking butch on the road
Pass Ms. Green tips his hat says hello
On the stoop watching all that is known

(chorus)
here on my street, everyone who meets at the round about
nothing ever changes the song remains the same

OLD SCHOOL

Written By: Amotz Barak Ben-Israel

OLD SCHOOL

She said I was outta my mind
Speaking the words that were deep inside
She would claim I did not believe
Said I was insane and she would tell me

I’m being analogue in a digital world
Sendin’ my message through copper
I won’t be digitized, not today
I won’t be digitized, no it can’t be done

She would see what I would say
As meaningless, too far off Broadway
She would claim I did not believe
Said I was insane and she would tell me

I’m being analogue in a digital world
Sendin’ my message through copper
I won’t be digitized, not today
I won’t be digitized, no it can’t be done

She’d not understand visions in my head
Less than comprehend, get confused instead
She would claim I did not believe
Said I was insane and she would tell me

I’m being analogue in a digital world
Sendin’ my message through copper
I won’t be digitized, not today
I won’t be digitized, no it can’t be done
