Here are some of the wonderful people I have the pleasure and great fortune of working with…some of them have been with me since the last century!. 🙂
Picture above: Ofer Pesenzon, Noa, Yum, Gil Dor, Mya Marshall and Paolo Vilares
Gil DorGil dor has been my musical collaborator for the past 28 (!!!!!!!!!!!!!) years! he is amazing, no less. The way he plays, writes, arranges, composes, accompanies me…it’s all sublime. But above all, the way he thinks, and his ablity to support, educate, enlighten and assist without judgment, with maximum care and friendship, is nothing less than miraculous. I feel so lucky to have crossed paths , and entwined fates, with so extraordinary a human as he is. Gil Dor’s Bio
Ofer has been my manager for well over 25 years! He’s the captain. Gil, Ofer and myself operate like a family unit. Ofer may seem tough but he’s not….he has a lot of responsibility and has to deal with all the muck and slime of the industry, but deep down, he’s a really sweet and sensitive guy, with a big heart. and he’s a great manager.
Asher Bitansky was my manager, together with Ofer, for the first 17 years of my career. Ofer and Asher split a few years ago, but we all remain good friend. Asher is unique in every way, he is talented and charismatic, a philosopher and innovator, a natural leader. Asher had a huge impact on the first years of my career, and continues to be my publisher, advisor and close friend to this day.
Moti is a great bass player and singer , but also a philosopher , comedian, japanophile and overall clever and wonderful guy. He is hands on with our site, Facebook, Headstart and so much more. Thanks moti!!!
Solis String QuartetThe Solis String quartet are a truly fantastic and unique group of musicians. Working together since they were teenagers, they have developed a sound and style all their own. Gil and I have made a DVD and three albums with them, and they are featured on Love Medicine as well. We have played more than a hundred concerts together all over the world, sharing the stage with them is a pure joy, and we remain the closest of friends. Bravi ,Solis!
Arranger and maestro Mochicach was my professor in Rimon (we didn’t get along too well back then, but now we’re buddies :-), together with Gil. He is undoubtedly one of the great masters of his time. Gil and I have had the great honor of working with him on two albums, live with the IPO, and the Israel songbook, in addition to recordings like Beautiful that way. Ilan has conducted dozens of symphonic concerts with us around the world, and never ceases to amaze us with his zany intelligence, eccentric humor, infinite knowledge and great talent.
Gai is Israel’s number one studio engineer, he has made almost all of my albums from the first day of my career! He is soooo amazing. He has infinite patience, golden ears and a heart to match. he can work for hours on end , not noticing the time pass, drinking endless cups of coffee with four spoons of sugar (!!!) , perfecting the balance or the sound… its incredible. And he’s a man of the sea, sailing is his great passion. Gai is such a wonderful human being, i am so lucky!
Shai is such a brillant technician, he blows us away. he reads our minds, he’s fast and lightning, accurate and thorough, sensitive and deep. Shai is a rare talent, and we are so grateful to have the opportunity of working with him.
Mya Marshall is our super – woman!! Secretary, production manager and tour manager, smart, sharp, efficient, sweet, quirky and lovable!! 🙂
Gadi ReikGadi has been our right hand man for more than 20 years, he is an extremely talented sound engineer and an overall genius. There is nothing that Gadi doesn’t know something about 🙂 especially music, but not only. Gadi is funny and wise and enormously entertaining, but above all, he is a wonderful professional , a huge asset to our production and a great friend.
Can anybody guess how old this man that resembles Brad Pitt is?? you can’t! 🙂 because he is ageless. his incredible smile and good energy keep him forever young. Itzik has been working with us from day one, he is an extraordinary sound engineer, all heart and ears and generosity of spirit. Itzik will always be there for you, he is so witty and creative, he’s fun to be with and he always puts a smile on my face. i love him so much. toda itzik!!
Paolo Vilares is a wonderful sound engineer, but he’s much more than that ; actually, he’s a great musician, guitarist and singer! If Gil and I ever feel a bit out of sorts, Paolo can replace us easily 🙂 there’s no problem Paolo can’t solve, with his eternal “I’m on it”… patient, calm and kindhearted, he’s a real gift. O brigado Paolo!
Florentijn Vandenbergh is a magician with the lights, so sensitive and creative, but beyond that he is just a super wonderful human being. He is incredibly modest, dedicated, underspoken and sensitive, and he has a great team spirit. We are proud to work with Florentijn and even prouder to be his friend! (He also works at a school near his home in Belgium….lucky kids! ). Dank u well!!
Gur is quite a character. He is a visual designer, animator, lighting and creative developer, video artists, entertainment business entrepreneur ,sailor and aquarium builder (to name a few). But above all he is fiercely individual, wildly talented and unique in every way, with an insatiable appetite for life. The stage comes alive under his fingers.

Ronen AkermanRonen Akerman has been my close friend for 28 years. He is an AMAZING photographer and an even more amazing human being. We have been through so much together, and every year I love and admire him more. Ronen is responsible for most of the gorgeous photos of me you see on this site….he makes me look much more beautiful than I am…because he photographs my soul, not my body. And behind his lens, I see clearly into his own beautiful soul. Thank you Ronen.
Michel BraunsteinLove Medicine. He does it all with love, talent, patience and generosity that are boundless. Michel has been my close friend for more than 25 years, i consider him one of the great gifts life has given me. Besides, he is a Dolphin…and we all know, there’s nothing better 🙂
