Eli Rozen is a young Hebrew singer-songwriter with a fresh perspective and unique delivery, who is set to release his much anticipated debut – "Kol Hamekomot Haeleh" – in the coming months.
The album was written during six years of Eli's life, divided between Tel Aviv and Paris. The album's atmosphere was very much influenced by the cities in which it was written.Musically, Eli is influenced by Alternative artists such as Radiohead, Bjork and alt-rock French groups. The emphasis in Eli's work is no less about the lyrics then the production – where he is inspired by Charles Bukowski, Raymond Carver and Yehuda Amihai.
With Musical Producer and Guitar player Itay Zangi ("Ben Hashmashot") Eli recorded a large number of rough sketches. Out of those, the ten songs of Eli's debut were carefully chosen.In the end of 2008 Eli started recording his album, produced by Itay Zangi and assisted by top-tier Israeli musicians.
String Arrangements were done by Zach Drori, who did the same for Eviatar Banay's first and third albums, and produced his second one;The drummer throughout the album is Isaar Tenenbaum, of Rockfour fame; And among the other musicians on the album you can find Yehu Yaron (Panic Ensemble, Ruth Dolores Weiss, and also a singer-songwriter in his own right) on double-bass, Mark Lazar (Rockfour) on electric bass, Tom Kellner (Havurat Atomic) on Cello and backing vocals, Roi Erezon Piano, Ofer Tal (The Apples, Radio Trip) on scratching, Yoran Hazan (Knessiath Hasechel) in guest vocals and also Amir Lev – one of Eli's favourite musicians – doing guest vocals on one track.
"Kol Hamekomot Haeleh" is the first LP recorded at Anova Studios, and was available in stores early May 2009.
