How do you usually write the lyrics of your songs?
It really depends on so many things. I can write an idea of something that I have in my mind, I can daydream and then the words are just floating in the air, I can also decide that now I’m sitting to write and fish the thoughts out of the ocean inside my brain.
In your opinion, what is the most important thing in songwriting?
Well, I think that the song has to say something to somebody. Even if you lose a thousand listeners because they had no idea what the hell you‘re saying but you gain one listener who actually digs your shit, that’s gold to me.
Are you ever scared of revealing aspects of your personal life/experience to strangers through your music?
No. My songs are my life and my dreams and imagination. No fear at all, that’s who I am, for good and bad.
What is the best lyric that you ever wrote (the most meaningful for you)?
I think that “Self Destructive Mind” is the best AND another song of mine that’s called 27. I wrote it when I recorded my first English album in Liverpool with the amazing Mick Crossey.
What inspired “Self Destructive Mind”, your latest single?
My sleepless nights, the fear of letting go and the lonely feeling that I had when I relocated to LA from Israel.
“Ocean” is a song about the fear of losing the love of your life because of circumstance
Do you remember the day you wrote “Paper Parachute”?
I do actually. I had this drum loop in my head and I was struggling with recording it and then the lyrics just came to me after long weeks of understanding that eventually we’re all gonna die. 🙂
What was the best moment of your career? And the most difficult one?
Best moments are when I’m writing a song and actually get the chance to share them with the world.
Worst one was probably moments when I didn’t listen to myself and the results were pretty painful
What are your plans for these last months of 2018?
Work hard, be better than yesterday and concur the world.
