“Miracle” featuring Jason Mraz

Songwriting is a big part of my career, I love weaving music and poetry together. Miracle was born after I was invited to write for Alan Parsons new album.

Alan’s idea to bring Jason Mraz to the mixture has lifted the song to a higher level. We recorded Miracle live at Alan’s beautiful studio in Santa Barbara California, Here’s a short interview about the making of “Miracle”.

“Miracle” was released as the first single of the album “The Secret”, playing bass on this album was a great experience, You can enjoy the entire album in the link below.

Lights & Bridges

LIGHTS AND BRIDGES doesn’t demand attention. It’s the kind of subtle musical-spell one has to lean into to truly receive. Producer Guy Erez creates immersive arrangements that magnetize via their purity and restraint.

Jeremy Toback

It started with an inspiration and developed into a friendship, I met Tom Rossy through a mutual friend after he moved to LA from New-York. When he came by my studio and played a naked version of “Superball”, I knew I wanted to produce it, It’s a beautiful song that started a journey that evolved into “Lights and Bridges”.

It’s been over six years of traveling the world with this great group of musicians, led by the great Alan Parsons.
Being together for that long, both on and off stage, created closeness and a strong sense of family within the band, It helps all of us grow both as musicians and people.

In 2014 we recorded a concert with a live orchestra, in Medellin, Colombia, The concert aired live on TV.
A new DVD and Blu-ray of this show was released on May 27th, 2016, You can get it at Amazon.

Lupita Nyongo for WildAid

WildAid is raising awareness to wildlife conservation

Animal poaching is a subject I became aware of In the past year, after meeting A gentleman by the name of Peter Knight, heading the WildAid organization with a mission to end the illegal wildlife trade, and protect endangered species from disappearing from this world.

I was moved by the cause and the vision. Composing music for the campaign was my way to contribute, to hopefully put an end to terrible practices.

I see this mission as important, so we can preserve these wonderful animals to roam safely.

Playing bass on Miley Cyrus “Hands of Love”

Miley
Some things move really fast, late July i got a call from my friend, producer Kerry Brown, he wanted me to play bass on a new song he co-produced with Linda Perry who also wrote the song. We got into the studio the same day. Our session had a great flow, It’s always fun to play on a song that’s so well written and being a part of a project that a shining star like Miley Cyrus is heading.

2015 sent me to many cities around the world, But getting to play in Israel, my native country early this year with Alan Parsons and the band was a special experience, We had a great show and had some local artists join us on stage. The Israeli crowd was great!

In June I played in Los-Angeles, my current home town, I love LA!

Later this summer we had a series of shows opening up for Deep Purple, one of them was closing the Quebec city summer festival, in front of 50,000 people . What a year.
