Born and raised in Israel, Erez's life has taken many turns; a soldier, an avid philosophy student, a traveler wandering through east Asia for nearly half a decade - Erez has never hesitated to leave the familiar and embark on a new path. While writing and playing music has always been a part of Erez’s life, it wasn’t until he was living on a tropical island in south China with ample time and space, that he realized that music was more than a form of expression for him; the new songs he’d been writing had paved a new path, one that he felt he must follow.
Soon after, Erez moved to Beijing and started performing. He became a regular at YuGong YiShan, one of Beijing’s top venues. Determined to keep on evolving as a performing artist, Erez decided to move to New York City. He spent a year on stages in and outside the city (at venues such as The Rock Shop, Rockwood Music Hall, The Shrine, Spike Hill, Milkboy Philly, among others), polishing his craft and developing his sound. At the end of that year he went into the studio and captured some of his music on tape.
Recorded in Brooklyn, NY, the album features nine new original songs and one instrumental piece all written, arranged and produced by Erez. The songs were recorded and mixed to tape with a full analog production in an effort to maintain the warm natural sound of the music. No computers were used during the recording process or the mix. See below for the track listing.
Erez (erez-music.com) moved to Austin in the summer of 2013 and is now performing on stages around the city.
