Feeling a bit camera shy


Israeli-born violinist and singer-songwriter, Michael Greilsammer is a revolutionary musical phenomenon. The child of French immigrant parents and pronounced a child prodigy at the age of five, Michael's unique music blends Irish, Reggae and Rock flavors to create a magical sound, guaranteed to lift the soul and sweep an audience onto the dance floor.

Michael's debut album, "Mitorer / Je me réveille" (Waking Up) was released by the major French music label, 'Naïve', which boasts renowned artists such as Carla Bruni and Marian Faithfull. In 2009 Michael's first single 'Ishti Hayekara' (My Beloved Wife) reached the top of Israeli charts and his follow-up single, 'J't'emmene au vent' (a 'Louise Attaque' cover) paved the way for his increasing success.

In his second album, 'B Paris', Michael collaborates with his wife, Shimrit, whose voice has been likened to that of angels. The album was called "A perfect album" and "irresistible" by the Israeli media.
Michael and his band have performed internationally in Barbados, the UK and have toured extensively in France. Regularly performing in major venues in his native Israel, Michael has also been a supporting act for several international artists including Macy Gray, Ziggy Marley and The Wailers. He has also played alongside popular Irish musicians including John McSherry and Emer Mayock and together with Amadou & Mariam who hail from Mali.
