From Be’er Sheva to Ramat haSharon and back
Elad David grew up in South Israel’s town of Be’er Sheva where he learned to play the guitar at twelve years old. In the mid-1990s, the era of Grunge and Nu Metal, then fifteen-year-old Elad David played with a band for the first time, and after his military service was over, the artist was certain that music was not just his hobby or his passion, but also his profession. Thus, he attended Rimon School of Music in Ramat haSharon where he furtherly developed his open mind for multiple musical styles, genres and epochs.
Back in his home town Be’er Sheva – a city whose residents are seeking shelter from rocket attacks while these words are being written – Elad David played with many bands and artists such as Kalbei Pavlov, Solix or 306°, and he was part of many live recordings and productions. Currently, Elad David frequently releases solo music. Combining his vast knowledge of music with skill and passion, the artist easily crosses borders and barriers.
A gentle Rain to wash away the Tears
Inspiration for Elad David’s latest single release was taken from a very sad moment. Yet, the energy that the conveys, does not drag artist and recipients into a deep cloud of darkness. Instead, the melancholic sounds are full of hope, redemption and encouragement. Teardrops is a musical realisation of a sunray breaking through thick clouds after a storm, or of a gentle rainfall after days of drought. It hence feels as if Elad David was sitting next to his listeners, reaching out his hand and telling them
indeed, it is a rough time we’re going through now, but I won’t abandon you, and we will get through this. Better days are coming!
Sweet melancholia, hope set to score, and masterful ukulele play make an instrumental song that speaks volumes.
