EREZ is a singer-songwriter and guitarist originally from New York who moved to Israel with her family as a child. She has two native languages and the cultures of America and the Middle East run through her lyrical and musical lines.
When she met Ori Winokur, the esteemed music producer (Asaf Avidan, Avishai Cohen), EREZ was only 18 years old. Winokur was blown away, and immediately offered to produce her debut album. Working intensively one on one, they transformed Winokur's (then) home studio into an experimental laboratory in which they cooked and formed the characteristic sound of the album: warm and round R&B, Soul with jagged edges of Rock 'n' Roll, and Funk in the right places.
According to rave reviews PROPER LADY, her acclaimed debut album of original material demonstrates powerful female musicality. While she and her band perform at clubs and the biggest festivals throughout the country in front of thousands, recognition increases. She is being hailed as one of the freshest and innovative singer- songwriters on the musical scene today: the throat of Amy Winehouse, the strings of Steely Dan -- all in a 23 year old lady.
A lot has happened these past few years. EREZ debut album was endorsed by ACUM (Israel's largest artists' rights corporation) which gave her a generous financial grant to help with the production. Soon after the album -- PROPER LADY --came out she was named as one of Israel’s top young female vocalists by the prestigious ‘AT Magazine’.
?Then in April 2015, the first single off the album, ‘Blending in the Universe?,?’ was featured in an episode of ‘CONNECTED’ - an AOL series starring Susan Sarandon. Two of her official videos have been rocking Israel’s leading music video channel playlist since Feb. 2015.
In the past year and a half EREZ has been touring with her band, performing? on Israel’s largest stages in front of thousands, selling out musical? venues around the country while gaining media and press recognition by platforms such as ‘Time Out Tel-Aviv’ , ‘Haaretz Newspaper’ , ‘Ynet’, ‘Walla’ and many more… EREZ went on a road trip Dec. 2015 to Memphis and Nashville?, Tennessee? where she met some amazing musicians. Spontaneously,? she recorded a session ?at the legendary Sun Studio, while paying tribute to Elvis by recording 'Heartbreak Hotel?'. In February 2016 EREZ and her band were filmed by Balcony TV performing a brand new song of hers, "How do you do." It was featured on their world channel.? EREZ's album PROPER LADY was chosen by Feedbands, ?an awesome boutique music company, to join their list of vinyl productions. It was released in March 2016 and as you can imagine, she is very excited about this! Shortly after the release 'Proper Lady' was named among the top 20 albums fro Israel in 2015 by an international music magazine called Beehype.
Today EREZ is back in the studio together with Ori and their team, working on new music.
