What producers do you want to work with?
I think I am working already with my dream producer Offer Nissim and other then that maybe would like to work with some great r&b producers sometime in the future .
Can you describe your ideal live event. Location, production and artist line up?
You might think big locations and huge venues are more exciting for an artist but sometimes a more intimate place where you have a direct connection with the audience is what’s more exciting , still it’s the people who make the energy not the place
Do you have a secret weapon you use as an recording artist?
I actually record myself. I write and compose my own songs so I have a control of how I want it to sound and know what fits me and what doesn’t. Writing for myself has helped me express who I am as an artist and bring my vision and massage and it’s a powerful thing to hear people connect to your songs and sing along with you.
I think more of the same.. traveling the world performing and continuing writing and recording . This year I get to come to Washington DC for the first time for pride. I dont take it for granted that I get to come and sing for people I live so far away from as I come from Israel. But it’s only one example of how music makes impossible things happen and connects souls from all over the world .
