Originally from Israel and now living in the states, my past experience includes 20 years of recording and performing in the genres of Folk, Pop, Rock, Alternative & Progressive. I toured Europe countless times as a solo artist, a leader of my own band “The Secret Sea” and as a guitarist for the art-rock band “Eatliz”. I was a signed artist with Israel’s leading indie label “Anova Music” and played in festivals such as “Primavera Sound” in Barcelona and “Exit” in Serbia among others. With “Eatliz”, I had the honor to open shows for artists such as “Porcupine Tree” and Dweezil Zappa (Zappa plays Zappa). In Portland I had worked with Larry Crane at Jackpot! Studios (Elliott Smith, Cat Power, M Ward and others).
These days I am the in-house guitarist for the label “Burn County” producing Country Rap music, where I recently co-wrote and played on a song feat. Corey Taylor (Slipknot), “Live the Madness” by Moonshine Bandits!

I work with Shure and Audio-Technica Microphones, and my DAW is Ableton Live.
Thorough communication is key. I will ask for sound references, deadlines, and if the song has drums I will ask for a basic programming to be there if the real drums haven’t been recorded yet.
Writing for guitar is my vehicle to put my heart and soul into a song. My expertise is fingerstyle guitar on acoustic and nylon strings, but in my audio sample you will hear a lot of electric guitars too. I love both. Other than guitar work, I enjoy editing stems and comping takes for vocals or instruments. I know that many people find that part of the work boring and tedious, but I seem to find satisfaction doing that! So if you need someone to do editing for you I will be happy to do just that.
Usually about 2 revisions included. Turnaround time is 2-4 days to 1-2 weeks, depending on the project.
