Singer-songwriter Shlomi Ash represents one of the most intriguing artists to rise from Tel Aviv’s burgeoning indie music scene.
Hearing music in his dreams ever since he was a child, he has gradually learned to listen to it and turn his dreams into songs about his life.
Spending his childhood listening to the likes of The Beatles, Bruce Springsteen and Led Zeppelin, Shlomi picked up his first guitar at the age of 10 and began to write simple songs.
On his journey to become, as he describes it, a singer/dreamwriter, Shlomi spent his early 20s frequently traveling the world, stopping in places like the U.S. and Italy, where he studied local musicians and was inspired by songwriting legends such as Neil Young and Jeff Buckley.
Shlomi also studied literature at college, obsessing over poets and musicians, such as Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan and Walt Whitman.
Shlomi’s early demos caught the attention of English producer Chris Potter (The Rolling Stones, Blur, The Verve), and the two relocated to the English countryside last year to record Shlomi’s debut album.
Shlomi writes intimate, acoustic melodies as well as upbeat guitar-driven songs about the simple things in life—love, friendship, childhood memories and finding your place in the world. His music combines the intuitive subconscious dreamworld with honest, introspective, and at times playful lyrics, to create songs that come from deep and sincere places.
