Israeli superstar David Broza is one of the most vibrant and engaging artists on the worldwide singer-songwriter scene. He has released over two dozen albums in three different languages, several of which have gone platinum. His 1983 album, The Woman by My Side, went platinum five times in Israel and remains one of the top-selling Hebrew-language records ever. Broza has been called “the postmodern Leonard Cohen,” “Stevie Ray Vaughn of folk-rock,” and even “the Mel Gibson of rock ’n’ roll.” But these comparisons merely offer a way to introduce this Israeli star to American audiences who have yet to experience his sound and stage presence. He is a modern troubadour of urban folk-rock who is, in his own right, an original.
Broza fuses influences from the three countries where he was raised (Israel, Spain, and England) into music that ranges from flamenco-flavored rhythmic and percussion techniques to whirlwind finger picking and a signature rock-and-roll sound. His troubadour tradition of featuring the lyrics of the world’s greatest poets adds a dynamic depth and intimacy into his performances.
