I am involved with a large recording studio here in Israel called "SPS” ('Sound Productions Studio') which is run by the musician Ofer Hamerman. I have released 3 Cd’s with all original songs in Hebrew & I also have several original songs in English, all with the music production by the musician and composer Ofer Hamerman, who is also my music manager. My repertoire also includes well known songs in English and in the Hebrew languages. I regularly perform in several concert venues around Israel. I also have a number of songs that I have composed & also wrote the lyrics for.
A song of ours called 'I'm All Yours' was recognized as 'an entry of merit' in the 2003 Unisong International Competition in the U.S.A. Another song that I wrote the lyrics for called "Keep on Moving”, with music composed by Ofer Hamerman, was chosen as one of the top 20 songs in the Dance/Electronic song category in the 2005-2006 “Unisong” International Competition in the U.S.A. Also, in the same competition, my latest release "See the Stars Tonight" (lyrics by Paul R. Thomas / composer, instrumental & music production by Ofer Hamerman) was chosen to be in the top 20 of the Honorable Songs Ballad category 2009.
Also, I received an honorable award from the great Venture Radio station http://www.ventureradio.co.uk (run by the presenters Tracy Clark & John Peters) for been the most popular artist in year 2008.
I was also chosen to be one of the 'Special Mentioned' artists in the Best Female Solo artist category of the Music Aid competition in 2009.
I have performed a number of concerts in France, at Toulouse, Marseille & Nice which were very successful. I was interviewed there by a popular French radio station after which they played an original song of mine on air. I have also been interviewed by a popular music station here in Israel after which they also broadcasted a number of my songs. I have also performed on the Russian TV channel & also recently on the Romanian TV channel "Antena1" on the "Duminica in Familie" family entertainment show with Michaella Radulescu, as well as here on Israeli TV on culture shows. At present, I am planning to release my first International album with my lyricist Paul R. Thomas.
I am also proud to announce a new version of the 'Ray of Hope' song, a duet performed by me with the UK singer Ade Carr (lyrics written by the President of Israel, Mr. Shimon Peres, composed by Ade Carr & arranged by both Ade Carr & Ofer Hamerman who also produced the music), and in just 2 weeks our song has reached number one in the ReverbNation song site's local chart in Israel.
The Israeli President Mr. Shimon Peres wrote the lyrics in dedication to Peace. He is a visionary and felt that through the site Songweavers.com a message to the world will be conveyed for peace and unity through music. Having Musicians collaborate from over the world with their own language and represent their country of origin will exhibit unity and spread the message of peace all around the globe.
