Raised in Israel on Moshav Mevo Modiin, a musical village in the hills betweenJerusalem and Tel Aviv, Yehuda (vocals, percussion) and Duvid (vocals, guitar) learned and played music togehter since childhood. Their American parents had come to Israel in the early 70’s. “When we were growing up”, explains Duvid, “the only electrical appliance in the house was a record player. So, while American kids
might be growing up
watching television and playing video games, we were listening to the records our parents brought with them- Bob Dylan, Van Morrison and Neil Young. Eventually, American students traveling in Israel heard them play and befriended the members of the band. Taken not only with the beauty of their music, but the band members’ charismatic stage presence, these young kids from the U.S. went back to the States and raised the money to bring MOSHAV to America for college tours in the late 1990’s. By 2000 the band had relocated to Los Angeles. Continuously touring across the United States and the world, including festivals in Australia, Canada and Europe, MOSHAV built a large following. After releasing and selling close to 50,000 of their self produced albums- the band eventually caught the eye of producer Ron Aniello (Lifehouse, Guster, Barenaked Ladies). Together they recorded the album, MISPLACED in 2006. Reviews for the record were highly favorable and the group toured heavily before teaming up again, in 2010, with Ron Aniello and Clif Norrell ( R.E.M., Jeff Buckley, Sting) to create their latest album- DANCING IN A DANGEROUS WORLD. The first single from their new album is currently being played, on heavy rotation, on Israeli radio. The band is excited to hit the road to share their latest material.
