YOOD (Israel / US) is a Classic Power Vintage Rock trio whose intense instrumentation harnesses the power of the thinking, feeling, agile electric guitar - - on a burning journey to elevate Rock’s heyday, via Kabala and Chassidic influences.

Biography

YOOD, the smallest letter in the Hebrew alphabet, is the new name for great, big sound. Three guys originally from North America, for the last decade playing backup to the giants on the Israeli scene, take virtuosity to new levels on their debut album, Passin’over, which has the kind of soulful, soaring guitar riffs you feel before you hear. Drawing inspiration from Hendrix, Cream and Dylan, this professionally trained classic rock trio performs original music and lyrics along with classic covers.

Front man Lazer Lloyd, who has toured extensively with legendary Israeli jam band Reva L’Sheva, and has played with Matisyahu and Danny Sanderson, does his magic with guitars and harmonica; Yaakov Lefcoe (Dr. Jake), whose roots are in hard rock/ funk, is master of the “monster bass sound”; and Moshe “Russion Percussion” Yankovsky charms the drums with his ethnic, fusion sound. Their band was born in Jerusalem at the start of the new millennium, and is known for its massive tight groove and high energy live show.

YOOD’s intense instrumentation harnesses the power of the thinking, feeling, and agile electric guitar - - on a burning journey to elevate Rock’s heyday, via Kabala and Chassidic influences.

If it feels good, it sounds YOOD.

Lyrics

Time ain't money

Written By: Lazer Lloyd

Well everybody knows
that your time is going to come
well some like to walk there
and some like to run
Big Boss is waitin to see what you'll do
ain't no checks you can write when that real rent is due.

'Cus time ain't money, no, time is life
Stop fooling yourself, stop wasting your time.
'Cus time ain't money, time is life
like you wouldn't waste your dollars, no don't waste your time.

Where you running ?
There's no bullets in your gun
Wasn't their a King who once said
there's nothing new under the sun

Who are you fooling
think about the day you'll die
there'll be no deals to make
there will be nothing you can buy.

Cause time ain't money, no, time is life
Stop fooling yourself, stop wasting your time
Cause time ain't money, time is life
like you wouldn't waste those dollars no don't waste your time.

Well there be big big decisions and big big crimes
If you get stuck in the middle
you'll have died on both sides

'Cus watching is waiting
if you rush, you'll fall
gotta ride a straight line
if you want to rise above it all

Well its probably not your fault
you were destined from the start
you were born in confusion
with chains around your heart

But the war is not over
no, the battle's just begun
find out who really made you
its the same one who made the sun.

Cause time ain't money, no, time is life
Stop fooling yourself, stop wasting your time
Cause time ain't money, time is life
like you wouldn't waste those dollars no don't waste your time.

Deep Peace

Written By: Lazer Lloyd

Deep Peace
Yes its gotta be
Yes a holiday for all mankind
And I know
'cos I feel the breeze
That our love will shine
let it flow let it fly
let it roll let it ride

The sea flows
I hear the children sing
Yes a new song
A prophecy of love

And I hear from down deep inside
yes the voice of hope
let it flow let it fly
let it roll let it ride
Yesterday is behind
we have new hearts and minds

You're right
I'm dreaming
but hatred leaves you blind
The neon signs your heart is bleeding
but there's deep peace inside
and I see it's not so far away
that a star will rise
a destiny in time

And who knows
maybe its you and me
we will search and find
let it flow let it fly
let it roll let it ride
Yesterday is behind
we have new hearts and minds

You're right
I'm dreaming
but hatred leaves you blind
The neon signs your heart is bleeding
but there's Deep peace inside
Deep peace inside

I Believe

Written By: Lazer Lloyd

I believe its a world of second chances
and I believe there's a road leading home
I can see there's nothing just by chance here
and I believe
I believe that the times they are a changing
and I believe that the writings on the wall
I can see that the skies are rearranging
and I believe
I believe like the rivers flowing waters
I believe where the oceans reach the sky
I believe that love it has no borders
In you and I I believe
I believe
and I believe there's hope within humility
and I believe in giving tenderness a try
and I believe in making peace a possibility
and I believe
I believe like the rivers flowing waters
I believe where the oceans reach the sky
I believe that love it has no borders
In you and I I believe
I believe
and I believe that the forest will be wavering
I believe in the power of the song
I believe its your love that will be saving me
In you and I I believe
I believe we've journeyed through this dessert
I believe from the mountain comes a call
I believe our souls are one forever yeah and
In you and I I believe
I believe
