artist: Israel Erez
featured track: "The One I Love"
I’m 40, married +3, Tel Aviv, Israel.
Writing music from the day I grabbed a guitar - 25 years ago. I have nothing fancy to write about my music career so I guess I’ll just try telling my little story here..
The day I got my first guitar I stayed awake all night trying to play that Metallica song - Nothing else matters. I knew that my life has changed for good that night and all I ever need is playing music. That is very romantic I would say but steel, I wake up with that thought every morning since, trying to figure out how the hell I’m going to find some time working on my music today.
I own a tech startup company with my partner for the last 3 years, after selling my branding studio business I founded 9 years ago. I am an entrepreneur working 14 hours a day trying really hard to create music.
My songs are very melodic and intense, some would say it sounds melancholic. For me, it is authentic as it could be. I co-work with Yoav Alyagon, a childhood friend and a genius musician that brings his magic in and creates a minimalistic and powerful production to the songs. Me and Yoav formed a couple of bands before - G.I.JO, MONOTALK, EREZ and more.. We share a great chemistry on musical and on personal aspect for the last 20 fucking years now. The songs are talking about love - love of a man to a woman, love for the melodies, love as my only survival.
We are here to capture that magic between the sounds and let it unfold.
