7 Israeli singers to watch in 2018

Nathan Goshen, Yonina, JonZ, Noga Erez, Itamar Haluts, DORJ and Gili Yalo aren’t household names yet but they’re fast gaining fans across the world.

Quite a few Israeli singers have fans across the globe and perform in North America, Europe and Asia. But for every success story like Idan Raichel, David Broza, Ester Rada or Noa, there are dozens of other talented vocalists working hard to get recognition abroad by getting their material on social media and adding English songs to their repertoire.

Here are seven solo and duet artists to keep your eye (and ear) on in 2018. Are there others whose music you want to share? Let us know about them in the comments section below.

  1. Nathan Goshen

Six years after releasing his successful self-titled debut album, which contained numerous top singles in Israel, Nathan Goshen enjoys a growing fan base worldwide for his electronic-tinged pop.

His first English-language song, “Thinking About It (Let It Go),” amassed a huge following including a remix by Dutch artist KVR that has clocked more than 102 million plays and led to Goshen being picked up by Scandinavian imprint disco:wax.

His new offering on the label, “Home,” is accompanied by short documentaries depicting people for whom the word “home” has a hard-hitting meaning.

As well as starring on “The X Factor” in Ukraine as a guest mentor/judge assistant, Goshen was named Man of the Year and Singer of the Year by Israel’s Galgalatz Radio and has been tapped by filmmaker Avi Nesher for his first movie role.

Yonina – a duo of Yoni and Nina Tokayer (often appearing in videos with their baby, Ashira) gained surprising popularity after posting weekly homemade music videos on which they sweetly harmonize and accompany themselves on a variety of instruments.

“To our growing astonishment, our videos began receiving a huge amount of exposure, the record being our most popular ‘One Day’ video with over 40 million views from all over the world,” they report.

Pretty soon, Yonina branched out from doing covers to writing and recording their own compositions in Hebrew and English. Their debut album, supported by a crowdfunding campaign, is titled “Emet Pshuta (Simple Truth).” A second album is in the works.

Over the past year they began performing live in Israel and other countries, including sold-out concerts in New York and New Jersey. Yonina performed in Switzerland in December and has a gig in Florida this March. Then it’s on to the US West Coast and Vienna next summer.
