Product Description

Amazon.ca

He sings into his guitar, slaps it around quite a bit and you wouldn't be entirely surprised if he happened to throw it down and stomp on it with his bare feet. Born in Israel, raised in South Africa and now splitting his time between Montreal and London, Yoav isn't quite like other singer-songwriters. He counts Timbaland and the Neptunes as major influences and spends as much time coaxing funky rhythms out of his battered acoustic guitar as he does strumming it. He won over Tori Amos' fans after supporting her on tour, which makes sense. The songs on his debut album, Charmed and Strange are quirky and inventive. Listening to the dense, multilayered arrangements on "Adore Adore" and "Club Thing," or even his ethereal take on the Pixies' "Where Is My Mind?," you'd be hard-pressed to believe that the whole thing was played on that poor six-string. -- Aidin Vaziri

Review

"...like a one-man melting pot of Timbaland, Pharrell Williams and Led Zeppelin." -- The Guardian, 2007

"Billing himself as 'one man and an acoustic guitar', Yoav makes irresistible dance-pop" -- Elle, 2008

"Yoav just isn't any singer-songwriter. Yoav is the bright hope for the new year." -- The London Paper, 2007

Product Description

Yoav (pronounced YO-AV) is already one of the most talked about new artists of the year. His unique musical influences have resulted in a sound that fuses the singer-songwriter tradition with Eastern scales and rhythms, all rooted in a dance-club groove. Even more incredible is that every note of the music on the album, and in live shows, is produced from Yoav himself. Using loops, delays, and pre-programmed tracks, Yoav is able to create a sonic landscape around him in shows and on record that sounds like a large and diverse group of musicians. The debut album Charmed & Strange, was recorded in Oxford and Montreal. Yoav grew up in Cape Town, South Africa and has since lived in London and New York. Montreal is also an occasional home for Yoav, and will hopefully be a frequent stop for him as the album builds momentum.
